Happy September! It has already been a hectic work week for me but we are coming up on a lovely holiday weekend!! I am super excited about that. Let’s recap some miles from last week!
At the moment I’m still maintaining and building my numbers back up so I can have a strong end of the year and a fun 2021 race year. Let’s hope some spring races stay on the calendar.
And maybe some winter in person or rouge type races if we’re lucky. My ‘Chelsea Trot’ actually is fast approaching. Always a favorite…
Monday- Active recovery day, getting in some yoga stretching after the long work day. I’ve got a lot more responsibility work wise so unwinding with a little down time was much needed to get back in the groove of the week.
Tuesday- 6.31 sunset miles. Did some rolling hills for good measure.
Wednesday AM- Back to them double run days! 5.21 miles to the tune of a beautiful sunrise in the morning.
Wednesday PM- 4.02 miles to get in a 15k for the day. After work miles a touch faster than the morning run.
Thursday AM- Breakfast run club miles. Had to be a work early so I squeezed in 6.32 miles at 5 something AM.
Thursday PM- 2.22 quick miles right after work to loosen up the legs after the long day. Feeling good feeling great.
Friday- 10.11 mile solo run in the morning just enjoying some time on my feet. This particular route has water and potty breaks throughout so that makes me forever happy. Much needed with the Texas heat and humidity.
Saturday- Back to back double digit miles for the win. Another 10 miles of splendid sunrise.
Sunday- Much needed rest and reflection day.
And there you have it! Over 44 miles for the week with 2 rest days plugged in.
How is running going for you? Looking forward to anything this month?
All of the pumpkin things. And the start of FALL. I love fall most of all.
Happy Friday! It is a scorcher out there but I got some glorious miles in this morning!! That always puts a bit of icing and rainbow sprinkles on into my day.
This weekend’s forecast will be blazing along with the HUMIDITY makes it feel ten thousand times hotter. Good times. Wish me luck for my runs this weekend.
Let’s check out this week’s faves!
–Okay I’m a sucker for a happy song but I love Katy Perry’s new jam. Plus she is glowing looking all prego and stuff in the video.
–This shirt. It’s got me feeling all motivated and stuff. I wore it on my run this AM and even had random people cheering me on and what not. HAHA love.
–The best women’s sunnies on the market right now. Feeling those Rokas.
–REST DAYS are key to staying healthy. Say it louder for those in the back.
That’s all for today! Have a nice weekend.
Tell me something random about your Friday!
–This morning’s early run came around way too quickly (since I did a double run day Wednesday + very little recovery time) so I just got up and got it done. The humidity was out of this world too but hey you know what they say. “It is what it is”. Always feels good when the run is done.
–So happy to say my family members that live down in the South part of Texas are safe from devastating Hurricane Laura. I have an uncle that was less than 1 hour away from the eye of the storm. He’s my athletic “runner uncle” and a retired firefighter. But all is well down there. Very happy he dodged the crazy.
–It has been a busy week at work still being an essential worker BUT I did manage to get a cute new mask. Wearing a sparkly purple mask makes the hours just fly by.
–That, AND an abundance of espresso and vanilla chai. My two guilty pleasure beverages.
–I need a massage like CRAZY. Maybe I will get one before the week is over. My back is in knots.
–It may have something to do with my 50 mile week last week? Just maybe. Feels good to be back up in miles again.
Share your random thoughts with me! Come on, I try not to bite.
Hello and happy Monday to ya! It is a beautiful day in the neighborhood and I am here to recap ya on some miles and smiles.
Let’s see how it all went down!
Monday- Active recovery day and a rather busy work day at the office. Of course it has not been easy doing essential work while the rest of the world has been working from home but hey, someone has to do it.
Tuesday- Beautiful sunset miles after another crazy day. I really had a great run though to de-stress. 8.12 miles done.
Wednesday AM- 5.23 miles made in the shade on a rather hot morning.
Wednesday PM- Double run day. 4.02 miles to get in 15k for the day.
Thursday AM- Breakfast run club miles. 7.12 miles of rolling hills and straight humidity. Felt good when it was done though.
Thursday PM- 3.02 miles after work to wake the legs up. It was crazy hot out even in the evening so I got in a bit of heat training.
Friday- I had the morning off so I squeezed in a nice double digit run with friends. 10.02 miles of glorious sunrise.
Saturday- 10.11 miles with the WRRC crew. Getting my back to back double digit runs back.
Sunday- 3.02 miles in 100 degree weather to hit my numbers for the week.
And there you have it! 50.70 miles for my week! Feeling good, feeling great. Still got it, I guess.
Do share – how was your weekend??
–This is is a rather short work week for me (I’m off on Friday) so let the long weekend begin! I started the morning with some glorious miles to the tune of this glorious view.
–We had an incredible morning the other day when the temps were quite CHILLY. I mean downright chilly. Anything in the 60s in Texas? Feels like wintertime, basically.
–I am really over summertime though. This summer really hasn’t been so bad or maybe I’m just used to the triple digit temps. But I need me some crisp morning weather, some boots, some scarves. I wish I could say the state fair. Sad face. Maybe I’ll just make up my own version of the state fair and invite my peoples over and we can go to a pumpkin patch or something.
–Is anyone ready for PUMPKIN season – take it or leave it? I’m a fan of pumpkin cider which I try to find every year. Sometimes it is a hit or miss. Maybe this year I will track it down.
Share your random thoughts with me today! Are you a fan of pumpkin things?
I also LOVE pumpkin candles.
Happy Monday to ya! Hope it is great one so far. Let’s recap some miles and smiles from last week!
I’ve been maintaining some lower-ish miles while I try to figure out my purpose in life. HA. Actually it is just nice to not have a major racing master plan right now. Working on it though…
Let’s get into it!
Monday- 5.11 sunset miles after the busy work day. Much needed and legs felt pretty fresh. Even ran faster than my usual Monday recovery run.
Tuesday- 5.22 miles with a few slight hills. Was just in a hill climbing mood that day and found some rollers to get things going.
Wednesday AM- 6.31 miles in the AM. The most glorious of sunrises.
Wednesday PM- 3.02 miles in triple digit temps. It was a nice little form of torture. Over 15k miles total for the day.
Thursday AM- 6.37 miles with my breakfast run club. Rolling hills to start the day.
Thursday PM- 2.05 quick miles at lunch to break up the work day. Triple digit temps again so this was a bit of heat training.
Friday- 4.12 miles to crank up the day. Was not feeling this run at all but it got done.
Saturday- Went out n the patio for dinner Friday evening with friends, so ended up having a lazy Saturday. 3.03 miles at lunch just to say I got it done.
Sunday- Full day of REST after running all week long. Breakfast tacos for the win.
And there you have it!
How was your week? Tell me something random perhaps!
I need to get my nails done.
Hey there and happy Friday! It is blazing hot down here in Texas but I managed to get out for some miles this morning. I’m kind of loving these super hot and humid runs lately though. Maybe my body is getting acclimated to it all? Feels like the ultimate detox. Low-key I kind of love running by walkers in the morning because they all seem extra impressed I’m running in such conditions getting it done. Thank you, total strangers for making me feel good. I need the ego boost every now and again. HA.
Let’s get to this week’s faves!
–What keeps me running. Loving it.
–Zucchini baked ziti!? Sign me up now.
-Also these grilled peaches are everything right now.
-For my fellow Texans, the best places to stop on a drive between Dallas and Austin. I may be needing this list soon.
–The fact that my RHOP ladies are back on Bravo. Living for all the guilty pleasure drama.
And there you have it! Make it a great Friday.
What’s on tap for your weekend?
Of course, sunshine – running – wine time.
–This morning’s run was HOT hot!! And HUMID humid. We are due for one of the hottest days of the year today. Gotta love them crazy triple digits.
–I have been listening to a lot of Maroon 5 lately. Some days I just get into moods where I want to listen to the same artists over and over. This was probably one of my favorite Maroon 5 albums.
–My vacation time from my work anniversary date was refreshed this week! WOOHOO. Now just gotta figure out where I wanna go. Or shoot, maybe I just want some dang staycation days. All you work from home people have staycation every day and as an essential worker I just want a vacation so I can STAY HOME. And get stuff done. Living that wild life.
–This is probably the coolest mask I have right now. I am planning on getting one in every color. I really like masks by the way. They are more or less a fashion statement for me.
Share something random with me today!
Happy Monday to ya! Hope everyone is all well and good. I’m here to recap some miles from last week! I took the miles down a bit just to mix it up and allow for some more active recovery. Let’s see how it all went down!
Monday- Rest day while doing some active recovery. Pigeon pose yoga move is kind of my jam right now. I also was house/cat sitting for a friend of mine so the week was quite busy on the personal side. It was nice to run from a different location though. Sometimes that is all you need to change it up.
Tuesday AM- Back at it on a Tuesday. I was strapped for time in the morning so I did 4.21 miles watching a glorious sky.
Tuesday PM- 3.32 miles on double run day. Just a quick out and back watching the sunset.
Wednesday- Changed things a bit and ran in the night. 5.12 miles enjoying the scenery and unwinding after work. The humidity was once again intense but I think Im finally getting acclimated to the summer running.
Thursday AM- 7.02 miles in the morning with the breakfast run club. This is always my most favorite run of the week. I get it done super early and get some good hill climbing in too.
Thursday PM- Double run day miles. Quick 2.38 jaunt around the block to get in a little over a 15k in for the day.
Friday- 3.02 mies at lunch. Love my RUNch getaways.
Saturday- 10.02 miles to the tune of this incredible sunrise.
Sunday- Rest day. Plus pool time.
And there you have it! Making room to build back up a bit this week.
How was your weekend? Get any pool time in?
Hey there and happy Friday! Hope you’ve had a marvelous week. I am more than ready for some weekend fun! All work and no play makes Chelsea a very dull girl.
Ah well, at least it’s a good hair day.
Let’s get to his week’s faves!
–Head for the hills on your next run. Makes me want to plan a social distance style mountain road trip.
–4 stay safe tips for trail running. Don’t get lost – I think that is super major cuz I know I’ve gotten lost on trails a time or three.
–15 secrets for running outside with allergies. Awesome post! I love me some local honey also.
–Plus finally, a little funny for your Friday.
Make it a great one!
