Weekly Running Report.

Hi there and happy Monday! Hope you all had a marvelous weekend. Mine was filled with fun friends, yummy eats and some SUNSHINE!! Finally I was able to get in a pool day on Sunday after church. And it was oh so lovely!

Anyway let’s recap some running from last week, shall we?

Monday AM- 7.12 miles in the hood. I was finally feeling somewhat back to normal last week after taking the miles down post Hachie 50 miler. So it felt good to be back in business again! Honestly I have 1 race on the schedule right now and it is not until September! But I am looking at a few races (including another 100 miler in December, I’m going back and forth over 2 options) just need to get it together. It is kind of nice to not have much going on right now. I just like running for the sake of running. And for my sanity. You feel me? Feels good.

Monday PM- 3.21 miles on the lake after work…just winding down from the day. I am loving doing some people watching lately in the evenings. Everyone is out since the weather is great so – just so much to look at. People watching is probably up there on my most favorite things.

Tuesday AM- 5.22 miles with insane humidity. Just got it done despite not feeling it that much.

Tuesday PM- 3.01 miles after teaching a class at the gym. Just more of a cool down run to get a double run day in.

Wednesday- 7.32 miles in the morning. Hump day miles with a faster finish at the end.

Thursday AM- 10.32 miles with the breakfast run club. Did a few miles with them then finished on my own.

Thursday PM- Got another double run day in! 3.8 miles at lunch. Another day with lots of sunshine.

Friday- Long run Fridays are back! I had some friends coming to town for the weekend plus we had storms Saturday so needed to get this one done. 15.10 miles finito.

Saturday- REST DAY. Fun weekend with friends and lots of fun pics taken.

Plus…sangria. Because YES.

Sunday- 5.11 miles just hitting some numbers for the week. Plus some pool time after and an ahi tuna bowl for dinner. Literally obsessed with poke bowls. With lots of avocado and sesame seeds. Yum.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Tell me all about the random details!

Hello there and happy Monday! Hope you had a lovely weekend. The sun is finally shining here again after some off and on rain so I’m feeling super good! Without further ado let’s recap some miles from last week’s running, shall we?

Monday- Monday was a REST DAY from the Hachie 50 miler! The whole week in general felt like a REST WEEK of sorts tbh after months of running 70-80 mpw. It was good to have time off and so I went and enjoyed some delicious dinner with friends after a long day at work. Hello, lamb meatballs for the win.

Tuesday AM- First day back hitting them streets. 6.31 miles done. Beautiful morning with super relaxed miles. Legs still felt a little wobbly honestly but I was moving.

Tuesday PM- Cool down miles after teaching a spin class. 2.21 miles doing some people watching. Pretty uneventful but legs felt better after getting them on a bike in the evening. Fun fact I always LOVE teaching spin right after a race. Something about cycling helps me recover way faster from running.

Wednesday- 5.55 miles in the morning. Threw some strides in at the end. Legs were starting to feel a little bit better. Slowly but surely getting back in that groove.

Thursday AM- Lunch miles. 4.21 miles done on a beautiful day. Made the second part of my workday that much more lovely.

Thursday PM- 2.22 miles again after teaching class at the gym. Felt good to have some happy legs again.

Friday- 8.12 easy breezy miles to kick off Friday. Allergies were killer on this day though. I always seem to run around the times that people are outside cutting the grass. UGH. Kills me.

Saturday- We had a wild Texas spring storm roll through in the morning so this run was done around lunchtime. 12.4 miles done! Back to double digits. Yay for that.

Sunday- REST DAY. Took mama to brunch. Had a lovely time.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Did you do anything special for your mama for Mother’s Day?

Weekly Running Report.

Hey there…happy Monday and all that jazz! Hope you had a lovely weekend. It is that time again! Time to recap some weekly miles. I was able to get in just over 75 miles of running last week!! That Hachie 50 mile race is ohmygoodness so fast approaching. I’m kinda getting nervous! But I have been putting in the miles and the work in that’s for sure. So, let’s see how it all went down.

Monday AM- 5.23 miles in the early A.M. Last week the weather was pretty crazy humid and sticky which is not quite my favorite but hey you do what you do to get it done. This was a part of the double run day miles.

Monday PM- 3.33 miles watching the sunset. Love having my Monday nights work free lately. I only teach classes at the gym now 2-3 times a week after the 9-5 so my work life balance has been totally improving.

Tuesday AM- 6.31 miles at lunch. Ran some hills and a lil negative split at the end which was nice.

Tuesday PM- 3.53 miles after teaching a class at the gym. Quick route around the lake to wind down from a busy day.

Wednesday- 10.11 miles in the morning. Really peaceful run actually listening to a podcast and my brain movies. Anyone else have BRAIN movies?! I have them a lot. Really more daydreaming but also brainstorming projects and such. Keeps things interesting. Ha.

Thursday AM- 8.22 miles of sunrise. Felt good but kind of dragging on this day. I think I was looking forward to my upcoming rest day after doing some run streaking. Kind of on cruise control type of situation. But made it work as per usual.

Thursday PM- 3.5 miles a little faster I guess for some reason I caught a second wind around lunchtime. Funny how that happens.

Friday- 15.11 miles early morning solo. Good run, time on my feet kind of run. It was a beautiful morning too perfect for running long.

Saturday- Back to back long run days are always a good time!! 20.12 mile Saturday with yet again lovely weather and good friends. I was excited we had a few folks that have been gone for a while make their comebacks from injury and such. It was an awesome morning and yes they made me run faster.

Sunday- REST DAY. Rest days are so precious and glorious to me lately. Good time enjoying the weather with lovely friends.

Oh, and black bean loaded nachos and mimosas for the win. Thankyouverymuch.

How was your weekend? How is your training going? What is the most delicious thing you ate…or drank?? I need details!

Weekly Running Report.

Hi there and happy Monday! Hope you had a lovely weekend. I definitely had a great one and am here to do a little recapping in my world of running! I was able to get in 76.8 miles last week as training continues for the Hachie 50 miler. Let’s see how it all went down.

Monday- I ventured out to some different territory and ran 6.3 miles of hills through my old stomping ground. Last week the weather was absolutely beautiful, we did have some rain towards the end of the week but for the most part it was quite pleasant.
Tuesday AM- 5.21 miles in the morning to start the day. Work wise April is quite the busy month so I’m going to continue on with being consistent with my early morning runs as they are quite therapeutic. And necessary for my mood to stay sane in hectic times. I am sure y’all feel me.
Tuesday PM- 4.12 mile run after teaching class at the gym. Legs were tired but got it done.
Wednesday AM- 7.22 miles with some more rolling hills. Nice quiet solo miles and managed to get up a little earlier.
Wednesday PM- 4.21 miles at night. Unwinding from the day.
Thursday- Back with the breakfast club run crew. 8.32 miles with some faster miles thrown in there.
Friday- 15.21 mile long run on my day off from work. I ran a bit in the morning then met up with a friend to finish since she had her long run that day too. Saturday was looking kind of sketchy weather wise (severe storms aka welcome to “Tornado Alley” in the springtime) and was not sure if they would even have the run that I was supposed to do in Oklahoma. So was glad to get this run in and happy to hopefully get some back to back long runs in.
Saturday- 26.22 miles at the DanMan trail run! If you are a regular reader you know I like doing this trail run and have done it the last few years in a row. Dan has ranch land out in Oklahoma and puts on a free trail run every year for the runners with delicious BBQ at the end. So I got in a solid marathon and then got down on some smoked brisket with all of the fixins. Good gracious that food was delicious. Hashtag so worth it.

Sunday- REST DAY after a bit of a run streak. Much needed rest day at that.

And there you have it!

How was your week last week? Hows your training going?

Weekly Running Report.

Happy April, y’all! You will have to excuse me being tardy for the party this week on my blog posts. I was not by a computer on Monday!! Anyway I am here to recap some miles and smiles from last week. Plus a recap of all of my monthly miles from March! Let’s get straight to the running, shall we?

Monday AM- 7.23 miles getting the day started in the early a.m. It is funny because now I always see the same morning folks out on the lake. And we kind of do the head nod (hey morning person, I see you out here) gesture which is kinda fun. Always lovely and always puts me in a good mood and a good frame of mind for the week.

Monday PM- 3.02 miles watching the sunset and getting in my double run day in.. Love having my Monday evenings off from work to unwind from the typical busy day.

Tuesday AM- 5.35 miles for breakfast. Threw some faster strides in at the end to finish strong.

Tuesday PM- 3.31 miles on my lunch break. It was beautiful out but it certainly is allergy season. AHH-choo. I had a spin class at the gym also to teach on this day so kept the runs fairly short.

Wednesday- 11.22 miles early with a friend of mine who is also training for Hachie 50! She also does her longer runs on Fridays so I have been linking up with her to run long on that day. We had a good lil chat and then I finished the last few miles solo.

Thursday AM- 8.38 morning miles with the breakfast run club. Rolling hills and then 7-eleven coffee after.

Thursday PM- 3.22 lunch miles. Quick loop around the park and then went off to the gym to shower up. Then back to work and taught another class at the gym that night.

Friday- 20.12 miles with my friend before a busy work day. Yep…running long in the mornings BEFORE work is no easy feat but hey. Someone’s gotta do it. Lots of coffee was consumed on this workday but at least it was Friday.

Saturday- 14.01 miles in the morning with WRRC before teaching a 9:30 AM class at the gym. Took a long power nap after – and had to stock up on a few of my Trader Joe’s goodies.

Sunday- 5.32 miles to hit my numbers for the week. Thankful for great running weather basically all week long to knock out all of those miles.

Finally, MONTHLY miles for March totals are in- 352.4! Woohoo for that. I should be good and ready for my Hachie 50 mile race coming up.

Oh, and I also celebrated by participating in a little bit of Sunday funday. In my hot new jumpsuit. See?! I like to get out of the running clothes every once in a while.

And there you have it!

Share with me how your training is going! Any races coming up??

Hello there and happy Monday to ya! Hope you had a marvelous weekend! I am here to recap some miles from last week. I was able to get in 75.8 miles and have lived to tell you all about it!! Things are shaping up great for my upcoming ultra, the Hachie 50 miler. Let’s see how it all went down!

Monday AM- 7.13 miles in the hood, watching the sunrise. Without a doubt the best way to start my work week. Wouldn’t have it any other way.
Monday PM- This run was actually at lunch, just getting in my double run day in for the day. 3.21 miles complete with a few speedy strides thrown on in there.
Tuesday AM- 5.2 miles enjoying the lake view and getting some early miles in. Work has been stressful lately so I have been forcing myself to get my early runs in so the work day will go smoother. Sometimes, it is all about that mental, running for sanity’s sake, amiright?!
Tuesday PM- Another 3.21 miles at lunch time, the weather was so incredible. I am so happy it is shorts & tanks weather down in Texas once again. Woot woot.

Wednesday AM- 10.12 miles with the breakfast run club. They had a few easy miles to do then I finished with hills on my own.
Wednesday PM- 4.22 miles in the evening after a long work day. Another stress-relief type of run on double run day.
Thursday- 8.12 miles in the early AM. This was done with some morning run buds. Rolling hills for breakfast.
Friday- 20.3 miles on a Friday!! Friday long runs have really been my jam lately. Thankfully I had Friday off last week so I was able to relax, get some things done around the house and enjoy the day. I even got to have happy hour at my favorite healthy-ish Mexican spot. Quinoa bowl for the win.

Saturday- 10.11 miles in the ‘hood. Everyone seemed to be out and about this weekend because for the most part temperatures were spring perfection.
Sunday- 4.21 miles to hit my numbers for the week. Running on rest day.

And there you have it!

How was your week last week? Training for any upcoming races?
Hachie 50 miler in May, some trail stuff coming up, and then trying to schedule some more races for spring and summer! And all the while still doing my high mileage running. I do have a mountain race coming up also in September! So excited to do something a little different from my usual road racing.

Weekly Running Report.

Hey there and happy Monday to ya! Hope you have some fun in store for the week. Last week’s running workouts were awesome and I was able to get in 85.7 miles in!! So, training is going well leading up to my next ULTRA race- the Hachie 50 miler!

Let’s recap and see how it all went down.

Monday AM- 5.26 miles (with faster strides) after teaching a crazy early spin class! It was dark and rainy but nice to see a different route in the morning. Got it done and out of the way.
Monday PM- 5.03 miles after the 9 to 5 job. The weather in Texas overall has been beautiful and finally spring is starting to make an appearance in a major way! So I loved watching the sunset on double run day.
Tuesday AM- 7.11 splendid (and hilly) lunch miles. I used my entire lunch break for this run but it was hashtag worth it. Love.
Tuesday PM- 3.21 miles at night and can I just say how much I am LOVING the extra daylight in the evenings? I really think it has been doing something for my mood. I am a lover of sunshine what can I say. Fun fact I even have a SUN tattoo. So maybe that is why?
Wednesday AM- Lots of double run day miles last week. 5.11 miles at lunch with the sunshine. Thankfully I have a gym next door to where I work so that’s real convenient for these lunch runs.
Wednesday PM- 5.22 miles at night doing some people watching to get double digits in for the day. I was on a roll.
Thursday- Back running with the breakfast run club! 10.12 miles of rolling hills.
Friday- Back to back long run fun!! I decided to do my 21 miler on Friday since I had some St. Patrick’s Day celebrating to do on Saturday. I am in LOVE with Friday long runs. It definitely brings new energy into one of my favorite days of the week. 21.33 miles done.
Saturday- 17.03 miles done with my Saturday long run crew, White Rock Running Co-Op. A few of us ran long and then went to the St. Patrick’s Day parade after. All green everything.

Sunday- Sunday was an absolutely gorgeous day! Everyone was out and about since temps wee in the 60s and 70s. Quick 6.31 miles to hit my numbers for the week.

And there you have it! Plus a #selfie, just because.

How was your weekend? Did you do any St. Patrick’s Day celebrating?
Not a ton of partaking in the adult beverages for me this year. Running high mileage makes you kind of an old lady. But I like it like that. Still had fun.

Weekly Running Report.

Hi there and happy MILEAGE Monday! I’m checking in with y’all and also wanting to do a quick recap from last week’s workouts! I was able to get in 72.3 miles of running last week!! It was a great week indeed with some back to back long runs included. Let’s recap and see how it all went down!

Monday- 8.34 miles in the evening time. I always kind of have to ease back into the work week after my weekend long runs. So it felt good to get the legs moving after a long day of work.
Tuesday AM- Back to some double run days! 8.03 miles in the morning solo on the lake. Did some people watching. Great way to start the day. And the weather was starting to get pretty pleasant out.
Tuesday PM- Lovely lunch time miles! I love lunch runs especially on a nice day. 4 miles done and then quick shower and back to work.
Wednesday AM- 8.36 miles in the morning with friends. They usually do a loop around the neighborhood and then I add on at the end to get to my desired mileage. We did a few faster miles thrown in the middle.
Wednesday PM- 3.34 mies in the evening after work. Just a quick lake loop. But got another double run day in for the day.
Thursday- 8.12 a.m. miles with some hills thrown in there. I also taught a class at the gym that evening.
Friday- 16.02 mile Friday morning long run! Fridays, long running and coffee are probably a few of my favorite things.
Saturday- Back to back long run FUN!! I had to teach a spin class at the gym at 10 a.m.- so got this one done early with WRRC. 16.12 miles done.

Then celebrated a friend’s birthday at Lake Lewisville. Temperatures were in the 70s on Saturday and beautiful and sunny! What a great day and night it was with friends.

Sunday- REST DAY. A much needed one at that.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Do anything fun?

Weekly Running Report.

Hi there and happy Monday! Hope you have some fun this week in store. I am here to recap some miles from last week’s training!! 50 miler training continues after running the Cowtown 50k. Let’s recap and see how it all went down!

Monday- This was the day after I paced the Cowtown Ultra (which was a blast- click the link to catch up if you missed!!) so I took a complete rest day which was glorious. I also have decided to stop teaching Monday night spin class so now my teaching schedule will only be Tuesday and Thursday nights after work. This will definitely allow me more time to train (RUN) and also just have some more time for ME!! I have to say it was really hard to let this class go, but it will allow me to bring more energy into my already packed Tuesday/Thursday night classes. Which I am absolutely thrilled about. So, YAY for that.

Tuesday AM- 10.13 miles back out on the lake in the mornings. I really have been enjoying solo runs in the mornings and feel like it is has been a great de-stressor. Plus, when I run closer to home, I go straight to the coffee bar at my apartments and get some delicious Keurig coffee. My two fave K cups right now- Hawaiian coffee and Swiss Miss HOT CHOCOLATE. Yaaas.

Tuesday PM- 3.20 miles after teaching class at the gym. Double run days did make a small appearance during this little week of recovery. Loved it.

Wednesday- 10.03 miles with my breakfast run club. I started the run with them and then did the last few on my own.

Thursday- 7.22 miles early morning with crazy COLD and WIND. This was when the temps dropped from 60s to 30s in a matter of 24 hours! Yeah weather was quite the roller coaster.

Friday- Back to some long run fun! 15.04 miles on a Fri-yay! A few of those miles were 8 minute miles so it felt good to move a little faster. One of my friends met up with me at the end to finish strong. I finally feel like I’m getting my speed back after BB100 and that certainly feels great.

Saturday- 17.02 miles with WRRC! The back to back long runs felt absolutely amazing. I was a little stiff after this run but joints and everything still feel good and strong. Body is holding up well. Did some good stretching after this run too. Confession- I have been bad lately at foam rolling. I will have to do that now that I have extra time during the week not teaching (!) so many classes at the gym. Also, my deep tissue massage is coming up for the month. YAAAS.

Also, grilled scallop and shrimps for the win. I went on a lil dinner and movie date. We saw “What Men Want” with Taraji P. Henson. Great date night movie!! Hey the fellas will like it too. Hilarious and highly recommended.

Sunday- Quick afternoon miles. 5.22 miles around the lake when the sun came out just a bit. I am excited for the sun to come back in the coming week. Check out this forecast. YAY, warmer days ahead.

And there you have it!

How was your week? What is the weather like in your neck of the woods?

Weekly Running Report.

Happy Monday! Things are busy in my neck of the woods (& I am actually recovering from a 50K race I did yesterday! Ya know, NBD) but thought I would drop in to share some of last week’s miles with you! I was able to get in 71.6 miles last week. Woohoo! Let’s see how it all went down.

Monday AM- 4.22 miles in the a.m. Temps were chilly in the beginning of the week last week but pleasant. So just a little jaunt on the lake before the busy work day.
Monday PM- 3.02 miles after teaching a class at the gym. Getting the double run day in for the day.
Tuesday- 8.13 solo miles listening to some Spotify jams. If you are looking for some good running music check out some of my playlists on there btw. I use them for spin class mostly but I guarantee you will find something to fit your run mood.
Wednesday AM- 7.23 miles after the gym. The sun started coming out later on in the week. Sunshine runs equal a happy Chelsea.
Wednesday PM- 3.02 sunset miles. Love running sunrise to sunset. Legs were feeling good so I did some faster miles and threw some strides in there.
Thursday- 8.24 miles back with the breakfast run club. Threw some rolling hills in there for good measure.
Friday- 6.32 miles. Last run before Sunday’s 50k!
Saturday- REST DAY. And enjoyed some phenomenal brunch with the ‘rents.

Sunday- Cowtown Ultra 50k day!! Those of you who have been around a while know that I’ve been an official PACER for this race the last few years. So I paced the 50k distance with my pace buddy.

We had a good ole time, laughing, meeting people and enjoying some pretty fantastic racing weather. Recap to come.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Did you hit up any good brunch spots?
