Weekly Running Report.

Hey there! I’m here to recap some miles from last week! Things are going great so far as I ramp my mileage back up for my 3rd 100 miler…December will be here before you know it! I am feeling good post the Habanero 50k and ready to really build my endurance and get stronger! Let’s recap last week and see how all went down!

Monday- Much needed rest day after the long weekend. Gotta love Labor Day weekend shenanigans. Great way to ease back into the work week. I’ve been trying to focus on doing more yoga stretching at home when I am not cross training or teaching classes at the gym. Yoga with Adriene is so perfect for that.

Tuesday- Run after teaching spin class. 4.12 sunset miles while listening to a podcast. Great way to cool down after a super busy day.

Wednesday- Sunset miles after work. 7.21 miles doing one of my favorite routes. I’ve been enjoying switching things up lately and running during different times of the day. I’ve gotta practice more night running too since the HUNDO will be an all day and into the night (and into the NEXT DAY haha) affair.

Thursday AM- Back to early morning miles with the breakfast run club! 10.21 miles with some rolling hills thrown in for good measure.

Thursday PM- Taught a spin class also in the evening. Then 2.03 cool down miles for double run day. And triple workout day.

Friday AM- 3.02 lunch miles breaking up the work day. Much needed time to get away and get some fresh air. There’s a gym next door so super easy also to pop in to wash off before heading back to work.

Friday PM- 4.12 miles watching the sunset. It was pretty hot even in the evening time so I got some heat training in.

Saturday- 20.11 miles all smiles! This run was especially challenging since it was one of the hottest days of the year and I think the temperature shot up earlier than expected. Pretty sure we hit triple digits this day right around lunchtime. But hey, got it done and felt great when it was over.

Sunday- Taught a class at the gym in the morning, so woke the legs up with some Sunday funday runday miles. 5.32 miles done and picked up the pace a bit at the end.

Then got to catch up with a good friend at Hop and Sting brewery! Check them out if you are local. That IPA definitely hit the spot.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? What did you do?

Weekly Running Report.

Hey there! Hope your weekend was quite marvelous! It was a LONG, luxurious one for yours truly. I also was able to get in 62.9 miles of running last week!

Let’s recap! And see how all of the running went down.

Monday- 5.11 sunset miles. The beginning of the week has been rough for me lately to get into the running groove. I will say it has been good to break out of the norm and practice running at different times of the day. This was a relaxed run too recovering from a weekend of lots of miles.

Tuesday AM- 7.22 miles in the straight up rain! It was crazy pouring in the beginning but then towards the end it completely stopped. Love random Texas weather.

Tuesday PM- 2.23 miles after teaching spin. Again watched a gorgeous sunset. Felt good to get back to some double digit miles once again.

Wednesday AM- 7.12 miles with the breakfast run club. With a lovely sky.

Wednesday PM- More double run day miles. 3.02 miles complete and just over 10 total.

Thursday- 8.13 miles solo early in the A.M. My run club was out there- but I did my own little route. Playing Dora the Explorer for sure.

Friday- 18.02 miles! Time on my feet kind of run. Starting to feel a little stronger after the  Habanero 50k with the longer miles.

Saturday- 12.02 miles with the Co-Op! Before a whirlwind of a weekend with friends, good food. FUN.

Sunday- REST DAY. And SUSHI. Simply heaven. That cucumber Philly roll was absolutely everything.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? What is your fave post run meal?
Breakfast tacos…and/or sushi. And all of the mimosas.

Happy Monday! I am here to recap some of last week’s miles! I was able to get in just over 51 mies of running last week! This was a scale back in miles for me for sure— especially after the Habanero 50k! But training is still going well leading up to my next 100 miler. I am excited to crank the miles back up and feeling good! Let’s see how it all went down…

Monday- 6.32 miles with a friend in the early A.M. My legs were still super duper FEELING IT after Saturday’s race and honestly wasn’t even sure I would be able to move fast enough to keep up with my friend! The first mile was rough but slowly fell back into my normal pace. Thankful for this girl for getting me up and at ‘em. Running friends during the work week are the real MVPs.

Tuesday- 4.02 miles after teaching spin at the gym. Motion is lotion, baby! Fun fact I actually LOVE teaching spin after doing a race. It is something about the bike that helps my legs recover real fast. Real happy for the spin cycle side hustle.

Wednesday AM- 8.22 miles for breakfast. My friends wanted to run hills so I did a few then went off and did my own thing. Got it done. Glad to get in some longer miles so early in the a.m.

Wednesday PM- 2.22 miles in the evening. Enjoying doing some people watching and getting in a double run day.

Thursday AM- 4.33 miles just getting it in for the day. Slept in and ran after sunrise. Legs were pretty tired. Coffee definitely fueled this entire week.

Thursday PM- Run after gym. Nice cooler breezy run. 3.04 miles done.

Friday- 5.11 miles of glorious sunrise. Lovely colors in the sky.

Saturday- 14.12 miles before teaching a spin class. Power packed morning. The morning run was humidity central. So ready for some fall weather in my life.

Sunday- Sunday funday runday miles. 4.01 miles in the straight up sun. I actually still feel like I have a little PTSD from Habanero. So this run was not my favorite haha. More like active recovery miles but got a little run streak in for the week and felt good about that. Hip hip hooray.

I even got my nails done to celebrate. Yay for that. One of my friends says I say the word YAY a lot by the way. What can I say? I like to celebrate things.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Any races coming up!?
Loop Garou 100 miler in December. May throw another race in there. But that one is the big kahuna.

Weekly Running Report.

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?

Weekly Running Report.

Hey there and happy Monday! It is shaping up to be a busy week for me around these parts. I’m also 2 weeks out from the Habanero 50k!!! I’m here to recap some weekly miles. So let’s get to it, shall we?

Monday- REST DAY. Lately I’ve been doing some run streaking off and on- so decided it was finally time to give the body a lil rest break. It was so much needed and I went to go partake in some wonderful Monday night sushi. Heaven.

Tuesday AM- 10.21 miles with hill repeats thrown in. Tuesdays have really been some hard hitting training days for me as of late. It definitely helps to have a run posse at 5 AM to get it all knocked out. Love.

Tuesday PM- 2.31 mile run after teaching a class at the gym. Double run days are my favorite.

Wednesday AM- 7.11 miles to watch the sunrise. I was kind of on the struggle bus getting up early on this morning but still made it happen. Glad I did.

Wednesday PM- 3.01 sunset miles. It was still pretty hot even in the evening on this day (welcome to Texas summers) so took full advantage of that.

Thursday- 8.11 very humid morning miles with rolling hills. Got some faster miles in the middle which felt good. I do have some faster running friends so having them there to push me was quite awesome.

Friday- 5.32 relaxed mile to kick off Friday. Getting the legs ready for Saturday’s long run. And also, I run for hummus. Just saying.

Saturday- 17.22 miles. I get by with a little help from my friends. And it rained off and on the whole time. Glad it is done. The rain did cool things off slightly.

Sunday- REST DAY. Much needed one. Celebrated a friend’s birthday and my mama’s birthday. Fun fun.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? What did you do?

Weekly Running Report.

Hey there and happy Monday! Hope you had a super fantastic weekend. I’m here to recap some miles from last week! It was a strong week of training and I was able to get in just over 72 miles! 50k training is going great. Let’s recap and see how it all went down.

Monday- 5.12 miles to crank up the day. I was so happy for plenty of cloud cover last week and we actually had a few cooler days! I mean granted when I say “cooler” I’m talking 70s and 80s but hey, it’s something. Back to the heat and humidity this week.

Tuesday AM- 10.22 miles with hills thrown in. Gotta love dem hill repeats. Always feels so good when it’s done.

Tuesday PM- 2.22 miles after teaching a class at the gym. Felt good to get some double run day miles in.

Wednesday AM- 7.12 miles on some tired legs but got it done. These super early mornings have been much needed lately though. What’s that saying about working out before you actually know what you’re doing?!? That has been a BIG mood lately with summer training.

Wednesday PM- 5.11 mile run with White Rock Running Co-op. Lovely run though a pretty part of town with beautiful people.

Thursday AM- Somehow I was up and at ‘em for another early run and got some more hill work in. 7.39 miles total for the morning.

Thursday PM- 3.01 lunchtime miles in the sun…much needed break from the work day to get I over 10 miles total for the day.

Friday- 20.12 miles to kick off Friday! I honestly do think I love Fridays for long running the most. Early start and still had to work. Finished in the full sun. So lots of iced coffee consumed during this day.

Saturday- 12.01 miles with the RUN MY HOOD crew! Running, pool party and brunch. Can’t go wrong. Love running with my peeps.

Sunday- REST DAY. And crab cakes benny. Both much needed.

Also…check out my friend’s hat- for my STRAVA peeps. You know you love it. 

And there you have it!

How was your weekend!? What did you do?
Running, brunch and debauchery. These are a few of my favorite things.

Hey there and happy Monday! I’m here to recap some miles and smiles from last week! It was a strong week of training and I was able to get in a total of 70.5 miles of running last week. Habanero 50k training is definitely going great! Let’s recap and see how it all went down!

Monday AM- 5.22 early morning miles, more or less recovery after putting in long miles over the weekend. Just getting it in and enjoying the moving meditation before a busy day.

Monday PM- 3.06 sunset miles, unwinding from the day. We’ve been off the charts with the heat and humidity…but just getting in the double run day miles is really helping me to acclimate.

Tuesday AM- 8.11 miles, back with the breakfast run club crew. Hill repeat Tuesday. Never easy but it is getting better the more I do it. Finally getting back in the groove of things with doing the harder work is nice.

Tuesday PM- 2.23 miles after teaching spin to get in some more double run day miles. More or less a cool down run than anything else.

Wednesday AM- 7.21 miles, legs were pretty tired on this day…usually are after doing the Tuesday hill repeats so just keeping the legs going and getting it done. This run was probably the MOST humid of the week. Honestly I can handle the heat (as I actually love drier heat the best) but the humidity is the true beast. Sweat everywhere. Good detox though. Plus chocolate milk recovery after. And the loveliest of sunrises.

Wednesday PM- Sunset miles of double run day. 3.02 miles done.

Thursday- 6.32 miles after working sort of late the night before. Thankful to squeeze in these miles as morning runs have been SO NEEDED lately. For training and sanity purposes.

Friday- 10.11 miles with a good friend on a Friday. Always the best. Love starting my Fridays with double digits.

Saturday- SUPER HOT and HUMID day! 18.01 miles completed with WRRC. I had to start pretty early to knock this one out. It wasn’t that enjoyable honestly especially towards the end. But I was so proud to have gotten this one in. I super needed that boost of confidence for sure.

Sunday- 7.22 miles on a Sunday. FELT SO MUCH BETTER. Honestly probably because I was motivated by mimosas and breakfast tacos.

Plus, National Ice Cream Day was Sunday! So I went to TCBY and got some rainbow sprinkles on top. Oh happy day.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? How dd you beat the heat?!
Everything on ice. Even my mimosas.

Hey there and happy Monday to ya! Hope you are ready to take on another week! It is a good week to have a good week. Let’s catch up and chat about some miles on this lovely Monday. Shall we? Here’s how it all went down last week!

Monday AM- Not going to lie, getting up on Mondays has been HARD lately! I think my body truly still needs that recovery from the weekend of long running. I’ve also been doing some back to back double digit miles leading up to the Habanero 50k. So, heat training at its finest! I got in 5.32 miles in the morning enjoying a podcast and my peaceful morning route.

Monday PM- 3.25 miles with a faster finish at the end. Watching a bit of sunset and unwinding from the work day.

Tuesday AM- I’m back to getting some miles in with my breakfast run club during the work week. It really makes a huge difference to get it in early with friends! We did some hill repeats on this day. 8.13 miles done.

Tuesday PM- Cool down after teaching spin class. 2.23 miles getting in over 10 miles total for the day.

Wednesday- 7.12 miles, very humid morning. We did have some rain come in during the week which cooled things down a bit, briefly. We were back up to the triple digits before the end of the week but a brief dip into the 80s (HA) was rather nice.

Thursday- 8.11 early morning miles with my early crew followed up with lots of hydrating. I think I’m back on a bit of a chocolate milk kick. Sometimes I really crave that stuff. What can I say.

Friday- I absolutely have been loving Fridays for running lately. 10.22 miles done before the busy work day. Running double digits on a Friday just puts a great energy into my day for some reason. Maybe it’s the runner’s high. Who knows.

Saturday- 16.21 miles with my WRRC crew. Love them! They truly make long run Saturdays better. Plus a little pool party fun. Good times indeed.

And then there were breakfast shots…

Sunday- Sunday was definitely a recovery day. 4.11 Sunday runday funday miles.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Doing any summer training or rock any races lately?
I’m finally feeling ready to get back to doing some racing. The 50 miler from May is almost out of my system.

Weekly Running Report.

Hey there and happy Monday! Hope you enjoyed the long and luxurious holiday weekend!! Last week’s miles- 60.3 total! I know, spoiler alert. I like to spoil things a bit sometimes. Ha.
Let’s see how the weekly running report all went down!

Monday- 5.22 miles just getting the day cranked up. It has been a struggle to get up early on Mondays but oh so worth it when its over. Mondays are more or less recovery days anyway since I’ve been doing some back to back double digit running and run streaking. Just gotta get it in when ya can.

Tuesday AM- 10.02 early miles with some hill repeats thrown in the middle, for good measure.

Tuesday PM- Cool down after teaching spin. 2.02 miles out and back on the lake.

Wednesday AM- 5.35 miles with strides at the end. Listening to a podcast and getting it done.

Wednesday PM- Yoga + social run night with my run club. I tell ya it was so good to get the kinks out and stretch after that hot evening run. 3.01 miles done and over 8 miles in the hot hot heat on double run day.

Ins’t this sign just the best…oh so true.

Thursday- 10.12 miles on the 4th of July! Got my run in then got some pool time in. It was actually the perfect fun day with good friends.

Friday- Quick recovery miles kind of day. 4.32 pretty relaxed miles along the lake.

Saturday- 16.01 miles back with the run group. Another CRAZY HOT and humid day. I swear it has been raining off and on so much lately our humidity in Texas is just off the charts. Sweat city.

Sunday- 4.22 miles just to get that run streak in for the week. Followed by my fave brunch. Post run hibiscus margarita for the win. And pool time, of course. All weekend long. 

And there you have it!

Tell me about your holiday weekend! Did you run a festive 4th of July race or get a solid run in!?

Weekly Running Report.

Happy July to you!! Hope your weekend was quite splendid. I am back to recap some miles from last week and of course a monthly mileage recap for June! Let’s get straight to business.

Monday AM- 5.31 miles early in the morning getting my Monday cranked up. Early Monday runs are always so peaceful and always a great way to set the tone for my work week. I just love it.

Monday PM- 5.01 miles at night after the busy work day. So happy to get some double run day miles in on a Monday.

Tuesday AM- 7.22 miles while jamming out to some random songs on Spotify. Got a mini fast finish in. Always fun.

Tuesday PM- Had to teach my spin class after work, then was able to get back out on the lake for 3.01 sunset miles.

Wednesday- 7.32 miles on hump day. Getting the run in before a much needed Wine Wednesday.

Thursday AM- 5.32 miles in the a.m. Pretty relaxed run just getting it in to attempt another double.

Thursday PM- 3.01 miles after teaching a class at the gym. Just doing some people watching and watching the sunset.

Friday- 14.21 miles in the morning with this girl. She’s training for a hot summer race as well so we are both getting in those Friday miles. Definitely helps to have friends for these runs especially before the work day.

Saturday- 12.32 miles with my weekend run club! RUN MY HOOD is a fun summer social run thing we do where we do a run in different locations every Saturday then have a massive pool party and little potluck brunch. I always really look forward to these for sure.

Then I got my hair done since I had a freebie coupon. So fancy.

Sunday AM- 7.37 miles in the morning after a fun night. Surprised I even got out and got up for this one. Quite ambitious. Ha.

Sunday PM- I’m really getting back into this double run day groove. 3.22 miles done in the evening. And on a Sunday. Hashtag killin it.

And the evening wrapped up with delicious dinner and probably the best crab cake I’ve ever eaten in life. YES.

73.3 miles in for the week. Haven’t hit mileage that high in probably a couple of months.

Plus I wrapped up the month of June with a monthly mileage total of 272.6 miles. Woohoo for that.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Have you been getting any summertime fun/training in?
