Happiest of Mondays to ya! Hope you had a productive/rockin/fun weekend! I am here to recap last week’s 70 mile running week with you! Let’s get straight to it.
Monday AM- 5.13 miles in the morning right on the lake. Monday runs are always tough but once you get out the door you are good to go. And I always feel good when it’s done.
Monday PM- Yay for double run day. 2.2 miles after teaching at the gym. Winding down for the day.
Tuesday AM- 8.22 miles with the run club. We did hill repeats and then some. If I can be honest I really enjoy the challenge of hill repeats…it is like speedwork in disguise.
Tuesday PM- 3.01 sunset miles on double run day. Threw in some strides at the end.
Wednesday AM- 6.33 miles early am with a good running buddy. Don’t you just love those running friends that will get up to run with you ANY DAY of the week? They are a rare find. I’m lucky to have them.
Wednesday PM- Had to push double run day up to lunch time – 3.3 miles since I did a wine walk later on in the evening with my ladies. But at least it got done.
Wine walk was perfection.
Thursday AM- Due to said wine walk this run was at lunch haha. 4.31 miles in the hot hot heat and humidity. Yes it felt pretty much like summer all of last week.
Thursday PM- 3 miles at sunset after a long day at work. Unwinding with miles is the best.
Friday- 7.14 miles before the busy work day. I’ve started running on Fridays now and I really love it. Friday used to be rest day but now it is more like active recovery.
Saturday- 17.11 miles before mimosas, breakfast tacos and the POOL! Yes temps were humid and HOT once again and I was here for it. Enjoying a little bit more pool time while it lasts. Gotta love living in Texas in the fall.
Sunday- 10.3 miles with a good friend on the Katy Trail and through a gorgeous park. It was a great run and we had smoothies after and then I taught a spin class. Busy day.
And there you have it!
1 week out from the Orion 50 miler…! and yes, totally running it as a training run for this race. Gotta love ultra training.
How was your weekend? Did anyone run the CHICAGO MARATHON!? If so congrats!!
