Happiest of Mondays to you! Hope you have some fun things in store for this week. I am gearing up for my next race, the Habanero 50k!! This one for me will be all abut survival – as it is one of the HOTTEST trail races in Texas! I am excited to take on the challenge.
Let’s recap some miles from last week!
Monday- 5.32 miles in the morning – temps were already soaring towards 90 degrees! I really have been enjoying getting out when the sun is out for running. And of course I have been working hard on my tan. I think things are coming along nicely.
Tuesday AM- Lunch time miles. 5.02 miles done. It was super hot at lunchtime with a little less humidity than in the morning which was nice. Still tough but I’ve been enjoying these hot runs lately. It is something about running in the heat that switches on my competitive mode. What can I say, I like it rough.
Tuesday PM- Double run day miles. 3.21 miles in the evening after teaching spin Still very hot. We don’t cool down that much in the evenings down in Texas.
Wednesday- 7.12 early morning miles getting it done. I ran with a gal that always pushes the pace a bit which is great. You know those friends that have a way of doing that AND distract you at the same time with conversation so you don’t realize you’re going FASTER? Yeah, those runner friends are the real MVPs.
Thursday- 10.12 miles. A few miles were faster than usual. Felt good to pick up with pace with the heat and humidity.
Friday- Another awesome 10 miler. 10.32 miles felt good and had the day off. Felt good to get it done before a much needed pool day. It was ABOVE 100 degrees on this day too so I felt like I got a little heat training in even at the pool.
Saturday- 14.21 miles done! Last run over 10 miles before Habanero. Thankful for running buds to help me get through it.
Sunday- 5.02 miles on Sunday funday runday. Just hitting my numbers for the week.
Plus went to KITTEN YOGA with some of my fave runner girls. Yes, it is exactly how it sounds! Yoga with the cutest little kittens running around and you could adopt them after! They were absolutely the sweetest.
Such a fun afternoon with these ladies! One of them has a blog also! She is quite awesome. Go check her out.
And there you have it!
How was your week? How are you managing the heat/humidity with your runs?
