Weekly Running Report.

Happy Monday! I am here to recap some running from last week!! Things training wise are going well and the legs are finally starting to feel back to normal after my last ULTRA! Let’s see how it all went down!

Monday- 4.22 miles at night after the long work day. Most of this run was done in the DARK since it starts getting dark around here right after work, haha gotta love that daylight savings.

Tuesday AM- 8.32 miles with a few hills thrown in there. It was a tad humid and warmer all week last week but of course Texas is bipolar so there’s that.

Tuesday PM- 2.22 miles after teaching spin and over 10 miles total for the day. Good time on my feet type of day.

Wednesday AM- 5.31 miles in the a.m. Good ‘run therapy’ kind of morning getting some fresh air before a busy day.

Wednesday PM- 3.32 miles- double run day in the darkness again. Honestly I have to get used to running twice a day with it being dark at night because for the most part that means I’m always running IN THE DARK. Unless I do a lunch run but work has been too crazy lately. But well, such is life.

Thursday AM- 4.15 miles in the morning with cold-ish RAIN. It was kind of nice though and good mental training.

Thursday PM- 3.03 miles after teaching at the gym. Quick out and back and the legs felt pretty good.

Friday- 10.13 miles in the morning with the beautiful fall leaves. Glorious morning for running some double digits before work.

Saturday- Back to solid MILES! 20.12 miles with the run club. So glad to have these peeps to help me get all the miles in.

Sunday- REST DAY. Much needed. Celebrated with brunch because, breakfast tacos.

And there you have it!

How was your week last week? Gearing up (or recovering from) any races?

Weekly Running Report.

Hi there! Hope you had a lovely weekend. I’m here to recap some miles from last week!! I have been scaling back the miles a bit as I get ready for my next ULTRA race at El Taco Loco! Let’s recap and see how it all went down!

Monday- 5.21 sunset miles while doing some people watching. You know how some neighborhoods that you run in tend to be more friendly than others?! Well I ran in the friendly neighborhood this time. It’s actually where a lot more senior citizens seem to live and they are ALWAYS impressed by my running. Haha. Awesome lil confidence booster.

Tuesday AM- 8.12 miles with hill repeats thrown in there. Love the early morning breakfast club.

Tuesday PM- 2.31 miles after teaching spin. Ran when it was darker out. Starting to get back to doing some running in the dark for the ultra run prep.

Wednesday AM- 7.33 miles and picked up the pace towards the end. We had some lovely cooler weather towards the middle and end of the week which I absolutely loved.

Wednesday PM- 4.22 miles at night. Love me some double run days. Saw an awesome sunset.

Thursday- 10.12 miles. This is always my favorite day to run with the breakfast run club. Super motivated to get it in before a busy workday.

Friday- 4.22 lunch miles. Waited til lunch since we had some thunderstorms roll in. But it definitely cooled things down and made things more manageable.

Saturday- 10.12 miles on Saturday. It’s taper time so scaled back a bit. I hate tapering, by the way. (Would rather run all the miles, you know) but someone’s gotta do it.

Sunday- REST DAY. A much needed one.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? What did you do?
A little salsa dancing, running, Sunday funday picnic-ing.

Hey there! It is time to recap some miles from last week! It was a great week of running and I was able to get in 63.7 miles. Feeling good, feeling great. Let’s see how it all went down!

Monday- 5.22 sunset miles. It was quite warm and humid all week last week but it felt good to run after a stressful day. I can see how some runners like to run after work mainly just to unwind. Mostly I am a morning runner if I am not doing a double day but I definitely can appreciate some good evening miles for sure. This run was more of a recovery run after putting in lots of miles over the weekend.

Tuesday AM- 8.32 miles in the AM with the run club. Threw in some rolling hills which was lovely. Nothing like attacking those hills early in the morning before the world wakes up.

Tuesday PM- 2.22 miles after teaching spin cycle. Doing some people watching. Over 10.5 miles total for double run day.

Wednesday- 7.12 miles with sunshine and shade. I ran later in the morning when the temps were about 90 degrees at the finish. I pushed it in the heat which felt good and a good detox.

Thursday AM- 7.31 peaceful miles. Faster finish with strides at the end.

Thursday PM- 3.32 miles after teaching class at gym.

Friday- 10.12 miles. Felt awesome on a Friday and there was a cool-ish breeze in the air which I very much enjoyed.

Saturday- 20.12 miles back with the run club. It always feels good to get in a long run with friends. Kicking off the weekend right.

Sunday- REST DAY. And an abundance of sushi. Much needed.

And there you have it!!

Plus, I am happy to report I ended September with a grand total of 263 miles. Good stuff.

How is your running going? Looking fwd to anything in this month of October?
THIS RACE. Because, tacos. Still need to hit up the fair also.

Happy Monday! We are here to recap some miles from last week! It was quite a strong week of training for me – I was able to get in just over 71 miles of running! Woohoo for that. Let’s recap and see how it all went down.

Monday- Morning miles and all smiles with a friend in the ‘hood! 7.21 miles done watching the sunrise.
Tuesday AM- 10.12 miles enjoying the cool breeze. I was craving some solo miles and this was just what I needed. Threw some rolling hills in there.
Tuesday PM- 2.21 miles in the evening doing some people watching after teaching a spin class. Felt good to get a double run day in.
Wednesday AM- 5.32 miles, super thick humidity on this morning so listened to a podcast, sucked it up and got it done
Wednesday PM- Lunch miles – needed to get away from the office for a bit to go play. I found a smooth surface did some barefoot running, y’all! It was kinda fun. 2.22 miles at lunch.
Thursday- 8.11 miles with my run club. They pushed me for a few miles which felt good since some of them had a tempo day.
Friday- 8.32 miles, threw in a few strides there. Getting a good morning run in on Fridays always makes the day better. I actually had to work late this day too so was so glad I was able to get this run in early.
Saturday AM- Long run Saturday was HUMIDITY CENTRAL. 15.22 miles, after running some 20 milers the last few weekends and back to back stuff. I am so over this Texas humidity/heat frankly and need it to cool down in a major way. Even running with friends I was just over it before it even began. But, well. It got done.
Saturday PM- I had a really low key Saturday and wanted to get back out to shake out the legs. 2.31 miles done. It felt better outside without the sun blazing and the humidity went down a bit.
Sunday- I had a friend who needed Sunday miles which was great for me and got me up early to knock out 10.12 miles. Awesome because it allowed me to hit my numbers and get it all in.

Plus brunch with friends on the harbor for Sunday funday runday.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Check out any great brunch places?

Happy Monday and HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL! I’m here to recap some running from last week. I was able to get in just over 70 miles and feeling good and revved up for some upcoming races! Let’s recap and see how it all went down.

Monday- 5.12 sunset miles getting back into the groove. Last week I enjoyed changing up a few days with running at different times of the day. Perfect time of the day too for some people watching.

Tuesday AM- Back to running a few hills with the run club then added some miles at the end. 8.21 miles done.

Tuesday PM- 2.22 miles at teaching spin cycle class at the gym. Nice little cool down to end the day.

Wednesday AM- 7.32 miles on hump day with a friend catching up on life and such.

Thursday PM- Squeezed in some lunch miles to get out of the office. 3.02 miles, wash up and head back to work.

Friday- 10.01 miles done with a friend and some rolling hills. Weather was warm and insanely humid since the tropical storm was rolling on through. We had some remnants of that after it hit the gulf. We are pretty far inland so didn’t feel it too much, more or less the humidity than anything else.

Saturday- 20.20 miles with my Saturday run club. Still a sticky run but it got done.

Sunday- Sunday funday runday miles and a run streak to hit some numbers. 5.62 miles and some yummy eats from the Greek Food festival. Good times with fam.

There you have it!

How was your week and/or weekend? Been to any festivals lately!??

So excited the State Fair of Texas starts next weekend.

Hey there and happy Monday to ya! Hope your week is getting off to a great start. I’m here to recap some miles from last week! Training is ramping up and I was able to get in just over 60 miles!! Let’s recap and see how it all went down!

Monday- I got outside do to some HEAT training after some back to back days of hitting it hard. This was still more of an active recovery day. Body was tired but got it in. Some days you just do what you’ve gotta do! 4.11 miles done in the 90 something degree heat.

Tuesday AM- Back to my usual. 8.23 miles early morning. Saw a lovely sunrise. Great therapy for the work week…I needed the solo miles really. You know when you have weeks like that? It was like moving meditation.

Tuesday PM- Double run day miles. Just some quick miles after teaching class at the gym. 2.23 miles done and over 10 miles total for the day.

Wednesday AM- 6.32 miles with a friend just getting in some early morning miles and time on my feet. Chocolate milk therapy after. Yes, it is fun starting your run from a grocery store. Please believe I think about that chocolate milk the entire time that I am running.

Wednesday PM- 3.21 miles while doing some people watching. This was a bit of a progression run. Felt good to get another double run day in too. I’m so very ready for cooler evenings though. In Texas it just STAYS HOT all day into the night in the summertime. So yeah, bring on fall please and thank you.

Thursday- 7.11 miles listening to a podcast. I’m finding all of the good ones on Spotify. Actually last week I listening to a lot of “The Breakfast Club” on Spotify. I get my news and gossip all in one workout.

Friday AM- I was moving faster on Friday for some reason. Could have been a slight cooler breeze in the air, who knows. 10.12 early miles done.

Friday PM- I needed some night running so did 3.02 miles. Gotta start practicing running on tired legs. It was nice and there actually lots of people out strolling about on a Friday night.

Saturday- 16.22 miles with the run club. Quite glorious…then finally some pool and relax time with the bestie! Felt so good to dip in the pool my legs and feet were in dire need.

Sunday- REST DAY. And then it would not be the weekend without marvelous breakfast tacos. Heaven.

There you have it!

How was your weekend? Had any good breakfast tacos lately?!

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?
