Happy Monday! I am back to doing my weekly running reports. Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Here is a quick recap of last week’s miles – which came out to 83.3 miles of running! I have a couple of ultras on the horizon so we are gearing up for some fun. Let’s see how it all went down.
Monday- As most of you know last week was the BIG Dallas to Ft. Worth fun run that I do every year! 33.3 miles. Legs actually held up better than I thought they would. If you missed it you can catch the recap here. I love running crazy long with people as crazy as I am.
Tuesday- 3.02 miles in the evening after teaching a spin class. The next day was definitely recovery just to shake the legs out. I really do feel better after runs like that if I can get the legs going and the blood flowing. Even if the run is short, for me it is better than sitting on my couch eating bon bons. (What are bon bons really by the way? Has anyone had one? Do tell me what they are all about.)
Wednesday- 4.22 miles in the cold rain in the evening. I’ve found a great route over by work that I like to run so this worked out well. I am mostly a morning runner you know but it is good sometimes to switch it up.
Thursday- Another COLD, rainy morning but 6.32 miles done. Texas weather is being bipolar again (the high is 70 something degrees today, YAY springtime temps) but yeah I believe that morning it was 30 something. Ice cold rain calls for hot coffee.
Friday- Run streak week! 6.31 miles on the lake. Friday runs are always pretty relaxed before the long run on Saturday. This is typically when I would do a rest day but it has been fun maintaining my sanity and running all week long.
Saturday- 20.02 miles with the run club! I did get a massage on Friday night so that helped revive the legs a bit. But I need to start incorporating some back to back long runs for ultra training. Anyway, mimosas and breakfast tacos were had immediately after.
Sunday- I ended up having a low key Saturday which made room for some Sunday funday miles! 10.13 miles running a new route with my Sunday morning run crew.
Oh, and I tried a new chicken place! Cowboy Chicken. Fitting for Texas, right?
This place was pretty good last minute comfort food type of meal. I hear they also do rotisserie chicken tortilla soup and enchiladas so I have to go back for that.
And there you have it!
How has your running going? Tell me something fun about your weekend!
We celebrated the Cowboys winning on Saturday. Sometimes I like to be a Dallas Cowboys fan.
