Hey there and happy new week! It is a good week to have a good week. Let’s get down to business and run talk. I was able to get in just over 40 miles last week as recovery from a 60 mile week the week prior! I enjoyed a bit of a step back and rest time before I climb back up.

Let’s see how it all went down!

Monday- Active recovery day getting back into the swing of things with the work week. I taught an hour long spin class in the evening which was fun and power packed with disco lights. Love it.

Tuesday- 6.33 sunset miles after work. Decompress time and legs were feeling back to normal.

Wednesday AM- 5.02 miles in the early AM. Plenty of cloud cover.

Wednesday PM- 3.23 miles on double run day. Got some progression miles in.

Thursday AM- 7.02 miles for breakfast. Rolling hills in the hood.

Thursday PM- 4.03 miles after work. More decompress time and over 11 miles for the day.

Friday- 5.12 Good Friday miles in the morning with a pretty sunrise.

Saturday- Cloudy and cooler morning but I managed to get in 10.03 miles to wrap up this little recovery week.

Sunday- Much needed rest day. Spent Easter with the fam bam.

Plus wrapping up the month of March with 221.7 miles! Happy April.

And there you have it!

How was your Easter? What did you do??
Family time then got down on some Texas brisket.

Happy Monday to ya! Hope you had a restful and productive weekend. Let’s recap some miles from last week! It is without a doubt my favorite time of year to run so I have been ramping up those miles. Happy to be feeling back to my normal ‘running all the time’ self once again.

Monday- Active recovery day. Legs were still feeling the weekend long running but I taught a power packed (socially distanced) spin class at the gym.

Tuesday- 5.33 sunset miles. Loving the view and getting the running legs going again.

Wednesday AM- 4.02 miles at lunch time post vaccine number 1. I decided to wait until the work week to get my shot – and glad I did. Surprisingly I feel like I had a strange boost of energy the entire week. This run felt good with a faster finish.

Wednesday PM- 4.23 miles in the evening. Loving the extra daylight. Sun really has been an energy booster for me too and for my mood. Love that vitamin D.

Thursday AM- 7.03 miles of lunchtime rolling hills. Amazing weather and got a good mid-day sweat in.

Thursday PM- More double run day miles! 3.03 miles to get in over 10 miles for the day.

Friday AM- 5.21 miles for breakfast with this stunning sunrise.

Friday PM- Had a bit of energy before my hour long massage in the evening. So I got on a quick 3.33 miles after work on double run day.

Saturday- 20.21 miles for 2021!! Haha. This was a great run with lots of glorious cloud cover. And some springtime blooms. I actually didn’t fuel much for this run – just some Gatorade electrolytes and water. I’m going to start experimenting on these longer runs though with my hydration backpack and huma gels and see how things go.

Sunday- 7.62 miles on Sunday funday runday to hit some solid weekly mileage numbers for the week.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Are you loving your weekend long runs lately?

Let’s recap some miles from last week’s run streak!

Wednesday- 6.02 miles in the AM to the tune of the glorious sunrise around the lake.

Thursday AM- 7.12 miles when I super was not feeling it haha. It was cloudy and humid but I as just not into it until I started running and actually turned out to be a great run. Added some hills in for breakfast.

Happy new week to ya! I’m back to do some weekly run recappin’!! The weather in Texas has been downright glorious. We had another weekend where it was 70 something degrees and sun shining every day. Which made for some nice miles in my sweet new kicks. Let’s see how it all went down.

Monday- I took an active recovery / rest day after a long run over the weekend. Still building back up mileage wise so it was nice to have a day of stretching / yoga and getting back into the groove of the work week. Plus I taught my first EDG spin class at Life Time Fitness! I was a great active recovery workout with a great group.

Tuesday AM- Back to some double run day miles! 7.12 mile runrise in the ‘hood. Lovely miles for breakfast.

Tuesday PM- 3.02 miles after work doing a bit of people watching. Double run days are always good ‘time on my feet’ therapy for me and over 10 miles in for the day.

Wednesday- 6.33 miles later in the morning since I had to work a later / evening shift. The sun was OUT and about that morning! Threw in some light hills for this run.

Thursday AM- Back to early miles for breakfast 4.23 mile out and back run on the lake with a faster finish.

Thursday PM- 3.31 miles at night just a quick out and back after work in the darkness.

Friday- 5.15 relaxed miles around the lake for breakfast. My schedule was a tad thrown off this week due to the day in the middle of the week working at night but got this one done anyway.

Saturday- Quick double digit miles with my run club friends! 10.02 miles and was feeling quite fast that morning. I think the slight scale back and of course rest day during the earlier part of the week helped pace wise.

Sunday- 5.02 miles in the afternoon to get my numbers in for the week. Feeling good, feeling great.

And there you have it!

Has running been “therapeutic” for you lately? Are you looking forward to anything this spring?

Getting VACCINATED soon hopefully haha. And of course lots of running in the sunshine with bluebonnets.

Happy MARCH and happy new week! Hope you have some beauty and fun in store for this month. But first let’s recap some running from last week! We’ve come out of the Texas ice apocalypse and have had some lovely spring-like weather lately! Spring is one of my favorite seasons for running so I am so ready for a new season. That is for dang sure. Bring on the Texas bluebonnets and the patio weather.

Monday- 5.12 sunset miles to unwind from the busy day. Sometimes after work miles are the best miles. I can literally feel the stress just melting off.

Tuesday- More after work miles. 5.23 miles and picked up the pace towards the end. Legs were feeling tired after all of the running in the snow (ha) the week prior but just gotta get things done.

Wednesday- Back to the early AM run grind! Which felt really great honestly. Even at 5 AM I was out in the darkness solo and I spotted another lone runner. I enjoyed very much watching the sunrise and greeting the day for 6.31 miles.

Thursday AM- Spectacular sunrise day! The sun peeped out in a very vibrant fashion for 5.12 miles before going back into hiding. Love when the sky glows like that.

Thursday PM- Double run day miles. 3.31 miles in the evening and it was quite drizzly and rainy.

Friday- Quick 4.23 mile run in the humidity to start the day around the lake. Fast finish to get it done.

Saturday- 14.31 miles with the run club! Another very humid morning as the rain came in, but warmer than the ice storm last week. Had some faster strong miles in the middle so felt good about that. Back to building things back up slightly after a bit of a recovery week.

Sunday – REST DAY

And there you have it!

How is the weather in your neck of the woods? Do you finally feel like it is starting to look like springtime?

Happy new week! The sun is shining (finally) here in Texas which should make for some great running this week!! But first let’s get to some of last week’s miles. This was a bit of a recovery week for me after the 53 mile week the week before. I definitely feel like I needed it.

I mean really, check out this week’s forecast. Chilly mornings and all sun in the afternoons. Sunshine definitely is a mood booster.

Hooray for temps in the 60s in January.

Monday- Lovely lunch miles after the sun came out a bit. 5.22 relaxed miles to recover after taking a rest day from last weekend’s 16 mile run.

Tuesday AM- Double run day miles. 5.33 miles at lunch doing some hill repeats.

Tuesday PM- 3.03 quick miles in the evening on the lake.

Wednesday- 6.33 mile loop at lunch. Very cloudy and gloomy run with a bit of rain drizzles but it got done.

Thursday- 5.15 miles and threw in some rolling hills at lunch. Faster finish for the win.

Friday- 5.22 cloudy humid miles before the busy work day. Felt good to get this one done in the morning to rest up in the evening for weekend miles.

Saturday- 10.12 miles and had mimosas with a run buddy. It did rain a bit again during this run. Great way to cheers to some morning miles.

Sunday- REST DAY with some active recovery stretching.

And there you have it! Hope you have a happy and healthy week.

 

What has the weather been like in your area? Do you prefer running in the rain or super chilly mornings?
Sometimes I enjoy rainy runs to change things up but as long as I have gloves for a chilly run then I’m good.

Hey there and happy MLK Day + new week! The sun is shining bright here in Texas and I actually am rocking some flip flops today. Yes, temps will be in the 60s today so I have absolutely no shame. Never mind that it is January.

Let’s get to some miles from last week! I actually had a strong week of running (and even a REST DAY!) that I am proud about so I’m ready to recap.

Monday- Rest + active recovery day. I kept active on this day with work + yoga and have been pretty good about using my VARIDESK while I am working. If you do not know about this you are truly missing out! It actually really has changed the game for me. Less chiropractor visits that is for sure! Stay mobile and avoid all of those common distance runner issues.

Tuesday AM- Back to some double run day miles. I got in 7.11 miles of hill repeats at lunch. Which actually was quite fun! I love running up and down hills over and over while blasting my jams solo. Back in that groove.

Tuesday PM- 3.23 quiet cool down miles doing some people watching. Over 10.3 miles for the day.

Wednesday AM- 6.31 miles in the morning to the tune of a lovely sunrise.

Wednesday PM- 3.38 miles after the busy workday. 9.7 miles for the day.

Thursday- 5.12 miles. Felt more like a mini active recovery day. Another stunning sunrise and starting the day fresh.

Friday- Started my morning with a really great running friend chatting and catching up. Love good girl talk with good girlfriends. 8.21 miles before work.

Saturday- 16.21 miles with a run friend! This was such a good run and felt so DAMN good. Running long is so damn therapeutic for my soul. Fueled with a little gatorade but that was about it. I want to keep my weekend miles long so I’ll be back to experimenting with the fueling that works for me. I love the HUMA chia energy gels in lemon so I may re-up my supply again.

Sunday- Sunday funday runway miles! 4.12 miles just to hit my numbers for the week. I’m back in business baby.

And there you have it!

 

Have a beautiful day. Quote from MLK.

Plus a foodie/drink pic of the day. Weekend margarita flight for the win.
