HAPPY OCTOBER! Hope you are having a great Monday. I’m here to recap some weekly miles as I train for this ultra. I was able to get in just over 77 miles of running last week!! It was a good time! Let’s check in and see how it all went down.
Monday AM- 6.32 miles in the ‘hood. Monday mornings have not gotten any easier honestly but I’m always so happy to get any type of Monday morning run in after running lots on the weekend.
Monday PM- 2.02 mile run after teaching a class at the gym. Nice little cool down.
Tuesday AM- 7.32 miles with my morning run group. They did some track work as some of them are training for shorter races- so I did a warm up with them then went off on my own to finish the run.
Tuesday PM- 3.03 miles around the lake watching the sunset. It was super humid and buggy out but got it done.
Wednesday AM- 6.34 early miles followed up by some ice cold chocolate milk. It never stops being delicious.
Wednesday PM- 4.02 miles done. Double run day miles with WRRC.
Thursday- 8.02 miles of hill repeats early in the AM. Good fun going up and down the neighborhood streets with friends.
Friday- 20.2 miles BEFORE THE WORKDAY! I totally felt like a rockstar after this run. Friday might just be the new Saturday long run fun. Yes, work was quite interesting after that early start but I needed to get some back to backs in.
Also Friday night I made chicken & black bean enchiladas for you foodies out there who care. LOL. They were delish and definitely worked out as leftovers for some meals for the weekend. I had quite the appetite after that run.
Saturday– Back to back long run fun. 16.02 miles with WRRC. Legs actually felt good and it is always fun getting in long miles with fun people. And afterwards we went to a Halloween festival/haunted house park. Good times indeed.
Sunday- 4.7 miles nice and easy around the lake before watching some football. The sun was out and it was a beautiful morning.
And there you have it!
How was your week? Are you looking forward to any races coming up?
