Weekly Running Report.

Well happy short work week! Proceed with excitement. Hope you had a wonderful lovely long weekend. I’m here to recap some miles from last week! Let’s see how it all went down.

Monday- Rest day while catching up on work things and such. Work has been pretty intense lately so just trying to maintain a balance with it all. Got it all done though as well as some spring cleaning so it was a rather productive day.

Tuesday- 5.11 miles unwinding from the day and enjoying the sunset after work. Quite lovely and legs felt good after taking a rest day the day before.

Wednesday AM- Back to some double run days finally! I got up and got it in early. 8.22 miles done with some rolling hills in between. Since the humidity has been a killer I schedule a pit stop for hydration mid run. Always does the trick. I’ve also added the HUMA gels for these morning miles to give me a little caffeine boost.

Wednesday PM- 3.22 miles in the afternoon after work. Felt good to have some left in the tank for this one.

Thursday AM- 7.12 miles back with the breakfast run club gang! Plus we had an amazing sunrise to boot. It was a bit of a social distancing run so we met up and then did our own thing. It made me remember how much I freaking love being done with bigger miles before 7 AM.

Thursday PM- 3.21 relaxed miles after work. Since I haven’t been teaching spin class (hopefully will be back at it soon, dang ‘Rona wrecking my instructor schedule) I really enjoy still doing the two a day thing. I think I’ll keep it up for a while.

Friday- 10.32 miles Friday so I could run with a friend I hadn’t run with in a while. She’s a tad faster so that was nice to pick up the pace a bit.

Saturday- 4.32 miles in the straight up rain. Straight up humidity with a faster finish/strides because rainy runs can be fun sometimes.

Sunday- Rest day and lotsa lake time. Lovely weekend indeed.

Looking pretty consistent on the maintenance miles over the last few weeks.

Plus passing the 1000 mile mark already for the year during month of May. Feeling good, feeling great.

Share your weekend with me! Anyone hit up the lake or poolside?

Hey hey it’s Monday! Hope your weekend was filled with fun, some productivity and relaxation! Let’s recap last week’s miles. I was able to get in just over 50 miles last week. And here is how it all went down!

Monday- Sunset miles to wind down from the busy workday. 5.22 miles and picked up the pace at the end.

Tuesday AM- 5.32 morning miles. Loved doing all my runs by the water with the crisp morning air and we had a few overcast days which was quite nice.

Tuesday PM- 3.26 evening miles to get in a double run day. Lovely sky.

Wednesday- More peaceful sunset miles. 6.32 miles and changed the route up a bit since my usual one has been overrun by the masses. Getting off the beaten path can be quite nice.

Thursday AM- 5.25 morning miles with the most loveliest view.

Thursday PM- Got in another double run day which was a win win. 3.21 miles with a faster finish.

Friday- I decided to move some days around due to the rainy weekend weather so I did this run in the straight up hot heat. 10.31 miles right after work just trying not to die in the humidity but it got done.

Saturday- We had a break in Friday storms so I decided to get out and enjoy splashing through puddles. 5.21 miles with mostly the roads to myself was wonderful.

Sunday- 6.47 miles to hit my numbers for the week. Feels good to be back to my more consistent solid mileage weeks again. Run streak week.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? What did you do? Any virtual races going on?
Still trying to decide if I’m going to defer the Marine Corps Marathon to 2021. Dang ‘Rona.

Hey there and happy new week! Hopefully you got outside and got some sun and fresh air. Let’s recap last week’s miles! I’ve been eyeing a few virtual races but in the meantime just trying to get some maintenance miles!! Let’s see how it all went down.

Monday- Sunset miles in the ‘hood. It was definitely plenty of people out (especially with Texas relaxing a lot of restrictions) so just trying to find new routes and mix things up and stay away from the masses. 5.12 miles done.

Tuesday- 5.22 mile lunch run. Picked up the pace a bit towards the end. Legs were feeling a little more fresh on this day.

Wednesday- 4.22 miles in the AM to the tune of this amazing view.

Thursday- 7.12 miles of HOT lunch time miles. It was another 90 degree day and I got some hill climbing in. Good stuff.

Friday- Chill lunch miles picking up the pace with a new route. 4.11 miles done and saving the legs a bit for Saturday’s long run.

Saturday- 15.02 miles with Jenna! I started a tad earlier with some warm up miles before meeting her and we were off. She was super sweet enough to bring me a HUMA gel which I super needed! Honestly I haven’t been really fueling with gels lately but was glad I did on this day. It gave me the extra boost that I really needed.

Sunday– REST DAY. Actually went out on a boat to enjoy the water which was quite lovely before doing a social distance date with my mama on mama’s day. IT’S ALL GOOD.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend?

Weekly Running Report.

Hey there and happy new week! Hope you all had a sunshine filled weekend!! Mine was filled with good things for sure. Of course I’m managing to get my miles in still – but going back and forth in my head whether or not I want to engage in a virtual race of some sort. I just need a little light at the end of my happy tunnel. Open to suggestions. I’m definitely in maintenance mode at this point.

Let’s see how it all went down last week!

Monday- Rest day filled with some BBQ-ing. I was still in birthday girl mode. I did have some yummy steak and brussels sprouts so YAY for good quarantine eats.

Tuesday- 5.21 sunset miles getting the legs moving again. We had some serious HOT days last week (temps in the 90s fun fun) so I’m back to acclimating to the Texas heat and humidity.

Wednesday- 5.32 miles at lunch. Or a RUNch if you will. Relaxed miles just getting in time on the feet.

Thursday AM- 5.22 miles in the AM. It was a bit of a cooler breeze in the morning which made for a great run. Also not as many people out that morning which put my mind at ease.

Thursday PM- Double run day miles just getting it in. 4.43 miles watching the sunset.

Friday- 5.11 miles. Hello, gorgeous sunrise, nice seeing ya.

Saturday- 10.03 miles with Jenna Runs! We had a marvelous time catching up. I can’t tell you how excited I was to run with a buddy again! One of my favorite running buddies at that.

Sunday- 5.01 Sunday funday runday miles. Got ‘em in to hit my numbers for the week.

And there you have it!

How’s your running going? Anyone sign up for a virtual race?! If you’re local let me know which ones! I’m looking for a shorter kinda faster race as a TUNE UP.

Hi there! Happy Monday. Hope all is well in your world and you are surviving this quarantine life! Let’s get to some weekly miles, shall we? I’ve been ramping my miles back up slowly but surely. Just for fun really. And just getting used to all of the solo runs but they have been oh so therapeutic to the body mind and soul! And the weather down in Texas has been absolutely everything! Yay for that.

Monday AM- 5.23 relaxed miles getting it in and loving the spring time cool breeze in the mornings. Mornings are definitely more chill with less outdoor foot traffic so I’ve been trying to squeeze in morning miles as much as possible.

Monday PM- Loving the double run day miles as it is keeping the stress level down. 3.32 miles with a peaceful trail view.

Tuesday AM- 4.22 miles in the morning with a glorious sunrise. I didn’t have much time to squeeze this one in before the busy work day but it for sure got done.

Tuesday PM- 3.33 faster miles and the legs felt more fresh on this day. Lately I’ve been enjoying these quick runs since my work schedule is so busy but the double run days do help the miles add up quickly. Loving that.

Wednesday- 7.22 miles since I had more time in the morning to get it in. Loved this backdrop of a lovely sky.

Thursday AM- 4.21 relaxed miles with lots of pretty blooms.

Thursday PM- 3.32 miles after work, feeling a little faster with a faster finish.

Friday AM- 5.21 miles on Good Friday! Feeling good feeling great.

Friday PM- 4.13 evening miles. I actually was not going to run that evening but decided to just bite the bullet and get it done. I was dead set on hitting numbers this week.

Saturday- Got in a shorter run in the hood. 5.31 miles with a view.

Sunday- 5.11 miles on Sunday funday runday. Watched some church online and also did a few ZOOM calls with friends. Sunday was actually amazing weather too.

And there you have it! Run streak week. 

Share some tidbits of your weekend with me!

Hi there and happy Monday! Hope you all are staying safe and staying well. I got out for some miles this morning and it was absolutely lovely on a Monday. Cloudy, cooler overcast and breezy! I tell ya these runs are doing wonders for my mood.
Let’s get straight to the miles from last week!
Monday- Rest day / spring cleaning day. I think one thing I’ve been loving about being home all the time (aside from my essential job) is taking more time to tend to the home needs. Actually can we just take the time to address how amazing homemade baked lemon pepper wings are?! Loving these bad boys for sure.
Tuesday AM- Morning run 5.12 miles with an amazing sky.
Tuesday PM- 5.22 miles just trying to social distance myself from 3 million people outdoors and their doggies. I think it was pretty successful.
Wednesday AM- 4.31 mies feeling a little faster on this day. It’s been a little more humid lately with the spring temps but lovely for running. Gotta get back acclimated to that Texas humidity though.
Wednesday PM- 4.13 miles – slowly getting back to double run day miles. Feels so good honestly to start and end your day with solid miles. If I do say so myself.
Thursday AM- Relaxed  6.32 mile run before working. Hello pretty view.
Thursday PM- 3.22 rainy cloudy miles. For some reason legs felt a tad tired on this day but always good to keep the momentum going.
Friday- 4.12 lunch faster lunch miles before a short Texas downpour for the win.
Saturday- 10.22 miles before more spring cleaning. Loved the early cooler breeze and drizzle. This is the day I wore my favorite hoodie cuz the temp randomly dropped into the 40s before going back up again.
Sunday- Rest day and a glass of vino for the win.
Plus 213 miles and 36 hours of running in March. 708.6 total so far for the year! I am getting there. Woohoo. Let’s keep this party going. Happy April.
And there you have it!
How are ya’ll holding up? What delicious things have you been making in the kitchen lately?

Happy Monday to ya! I am taking a bit of a break from quarantine and chill to share last week’s miles with ya! I have been maintaining what I would like to call ‘sanity miles’ during this time of canceled and postponed races. I’ve thought about doing some virtual races but of course my 36 mile birthday run is in April. If you’re new to my blog you can catch up on me running my age here. And here. And here!! Yes, so happy birthday month to me in a couple of days.

Let’s see how last week’s running went down!

Monday- I actually took PTO time from work on this day to catch up on cleaning and such around the house. So this rest day was quite lovely. I honestly do feel like I should get some workout points for the spring cleaning though. Cuz that can be quite the calorie burner.

Tuesday- 7.13 miles in the evening doing some people watching. I actually ended up thinking I locked my keys in my car this day when in reality I DROPPED them during the run. Went back along the same route (Tuesday and Wednesday) looking for them. No dice. So yeah. Had to get the car key re-made (I already used the spare). Not super happy about that. But hey it happens and life goes on.

Wednesday- 4.22 miles on a very balmy day. Found some shade to make it all better.

Thursday- 10.03 miles after work which was absolutely lovely. Kinda on purpose got lost on this run and found a great route with a few rolling hills.

Friday- 7.22 miles with a faster finish. Needed that.

Saturday- 12.03 mile run in the hood. Just relaxed miles enjoying the view.

Sunday- REST DAY. Compression socks and wine for the win.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? What did you do?!
I’ve been staying in touch with a lot of folks via video chats and such. I talked to my best college girlfriend (who lives in Maryland) for almost 2 hours Saturday.

Hey there! Happy new week and I hope you all are staying happy and healthy! Let’s recap and review some miles– and see how it all went down.

Monday- 5.22 miles in the evening while doing some people watching. And social distancing, of course! Thankfully running has been so therapeutic to me going through all of this. I also found out this week (sadly) that my annual Hachie 50 mile race was postponed. All good though– but hey the miles MUST go on, am I right?! I will say I took the week mileage down quite a tad with the sad news. Giving your mind and body a break can certainly be the best for a time. After so many consistent high mileage weeks training for ultras I certainly have been needing it.

But hey, keeping fit and focused remains to be the NAME of the GAME. So we all don’t become a victim of gaining the COVID 19. (“freshman 15” joke was intended there – insert laugh track please.)

Tuesday AM- 4.11 miles at lunch time. The weather down in Texas has been perfectly splendid actually for running. Woohoo for that.

Tuesday PM-3.22 miles to get in double run day miles for the day. Faster finish is always nice.

Wednesday AM- 4.32 miles for a very lovely lunch run. We had a bit of springtime rain and then the clouds came out.

Wednesday PM- 3.32 miles – another double run day. Gotta get it in where it fits in.

Thursday AM- Lunch miles were pretty popular this week! The sunshine just puts a whole new joy into my day. 4.13 miles complete.

Thursday PM- 6.32 miles and smiles. Relaxed run to get in over 10.4 something miles for the day. Plus this sweet rainbow for the win.

Friday- 10.12 miles on Friday! It felt good to get out for just a little bit longer.

Saturday and Sunday- REST DAYS. So much needed. Got to kick the feet up in proper fashion.

And there you have it!

How are you dealing with the crazy lately? What are things that are bringing you comfort and peace at this time?!
Running, sunshine, prayer and wine.

Hey there and happy Monday! Hope all is well in your world. It’s about time we recap some miles and smiles!!  I tell you what I am loving bluebonnet season and spring time weather down in Texas. Makes for some (a little humid) but great times for running.

At this point I know they are canceling races and events all over the world due to the Corona but hey! I am still holding on to a little bit of hope for my annual 50 mile race in May. We shall see how things go.

This week was a bit of a cutback week which was lovely! Plus included a much needed REST DAY after run streaking and running higher-ish mileage for over a month. So woohoo for that.

Monday- 5.32 miles in the ‘hood after the super long work day. I am loving the extra daylight in the evenings! Relaxed miles and felt faster towards the end. Running in the evenings also helps me recover from the long run weekends so love that.

Tuesday AM- 5.02 lunch miles to get away and breathe a bit from the work day. I found a great wam bam thank you mam route near work and it is super close to the gym that I also work at so I can shower, run and go.

Tuesday PM- 2.20 miles after teaching spin at the gym. Got some faster miles in after getting off the bike which was much needed.

Wednesday AM- 7.31 miles in the morning with the most glorious sunrise. Legs were tired that morning after a triple threat Tuesday but it got done.

Wednesday PM- 3.32 miles in the evening, Double run day running with a faster finish.

Thursday AM- 7.12 miles back with the breakfast run club. Running on some tired legs for sure but added some hills for good measure.

Thursday PM- 2.22 miles in the afternoon before the gym. Also did some working from home on this day so it was nice to get out there and get my runs in a little earlier.

Friday AM- 4.22 miles at lunch with glorious spring time blooms.

Friday PM- 3.32 evening progression miles before long run Saturday. I normally don’t do double days on Fridays but loving the weather just a little too much.

Saturday- Long run Saturday miles with WRRC. 16.11 hilly miles followed by a mimosa or three.

Sunday- Hello REST DAY. Nice to see ya. Let’s be friends with benefits.

And there ya have it!

How’s your running going? Anyone working from home?! Cancelled races? Share your RANTS with me!
I want to exclusively work from home right about now. But for now I’ll just keep washing my hands OCD style.
