Weekly Running Report.

Happy August! Hope everyone reading this is staying happy and healthy! I am here to recap some miles from last week. Let’s hop right to it!

Monday- I took this day off to soak up a little sun as well as some stretching / active rest day. All week for the most part it was typical Texas hot – but cooled off just a tad towards the end of the week. “Cooled off” in Texas means highs in the 80s and 90s. As opposed to triple digits. So, still brutal really. Ha.

Tuesday AM- Relaxed miles with radiant skies. 6.31 miles done.

Tuesday PM- Double run day miles to hit over 10 miles for the day. 4.02 miles in the afternoon a little faster than in the morning.

Wednesday AM- Lunch miles to give my body a bit of recovery. 5.33 miles pushing it in the heat.

Wednesday PM- 3.02 miles with a bit of progression. Another double run day.

Thursday AM- Ran with my breakfast run club – my favorite run day of the week. After doing so many solo miles I do look forward to seeing a few people in the flesh. 7.12 miles for breakfast.

Thursday PM- 3.02 miles on a route I’ve done before with a PR Strava segment. Gotta love that.

Friday AM- 3.30 miles pushing it in the heat again. I really am enjoying that a lot lately for some reason.

Friday PM- 3.22 miles in the evening. Humid but it was starting to cool off a bit since we’ve had some activity in the gulf. I loathe humidity though so this run felt soupy.

Saturday- 5.02 miles exploring a new route in the ‘hood. The temps were nice and it felt good to just be moving.

Sunday- REST DAY. Watching shows on Netflix and other guilty pleasures. I also tried a “new to me” Italian spot. I was pretty dang good takeout.

188 miles total in the month of July and completed the July Running Endurance Challenge. Oh happy day.

40.29 miles for the week without a long run. Back at it next week.

Happy Monday! It’s a good week to have a good week. Let’s recap the miles from last week!! We’ve had some lovely cloud cover and breezy mornings – nice little (sort of) cool down from the blazing hot temps. And when I say cool down I mean temps in the low 90s. Ha.

Monday- 4.21 miles winding down from the busy work day. Went a little faster towards the end than expected considering that it was a warmer day.

Tuesday AM- 4.02 morning miles around the lake. I love quiet mornings when I am not dodging strollers and doggies and people.

Tuesday PM- 3.30 progression miles on double run day. Just trying to find as much shade as possible.

Wednesday- 5.12 hump day miles in the afternoon. Harder effort pushing it a bit just for kicks.

Thursday AM- 7.11 early morning miles with the breakfast club. Rolling hills.

Thursday PM- 3.02 miles to get over 10 miles in for the day.

Friday- Active recovery run after double run day. 4.31 miles in the AM.

Saturday- 10.22 miles with my White Rock Running Co-op. Faster miles in the middle. We had lots of cloud cover and although it was pretty humid it made for a good run.

Sunday- RUN STREAK WEEK! Finished things off with 4.01 Sunday funday runday miles for the win.

And there you have it! 45.37 miles done – a bit of a boost from last week’s recovery miles

Hey there and happiest of Fridays to ya! The sun is shining bright down here in Texas and I am ready for a work free weekend! Check out this lovely morning run view. Perfect Friday feeling.

Let’s get to my faves from this week!

Olympic memories. Fun to look back on these amazing times.

Décor tips to bring more flashes of delight into your home. I love the sacred corner.

Summer cherries. My jam right now.

This flashback Friday pic (pre RONA) of me teaching a room full of hard working cycle peeps. I’ll be back in the saddle soon – but those were the days. Can’t wait to teach again social distancing style.

And finally, your Friday funny.

Make it a great one!

What’s on tap for your weekend?

Weekly Running Report.

Hey there and happy Monday! Hope you all are staying safe and healthy. Let’s recap some miles from last week!

I took the miles back a bit in order to build back up so this was a bit of a recovery miles type of week. I can’t even tell you the last time I did less than 40 miles per week in the last couple YEARS (ha) so this was good for the body mind and soul.

Monday- Took a rest day after a long fun weekend cooking out with the neighbors. I always try to do some type of active recovery on my rest day so I did some yoga stretching and keeping the body limber.

Tuesday- 5.12 miles watching the sunset.

Wednesday- 7.02 miles, massive relative effort. Legs felt good on this day so did some rolling hills. This view though.

Thursday AM- Breakfast run club miles. 7.11 miles just getting it done. The humidity was also not as crazy on this day so was feeling great.

Thursday PM- Double run day miles. 3.02 miles and I was freaking 100 degrees out. Sucker for punishment. Over 10.1 miles total for the day.

Friday- 4.02 lunch miles. Tough relative effort according to my Garmin.

Saturday- 7.01 miles at 7. With my run club to the tune of this sky.

Sunday- Rest day. Got a good selfie in.

And there you have it! 53K miles for the week. I am going to just start using kilometers instead of miles for now whenever I do a low mileage week. HA.

Doing any virtual races at all? If you’ve done them how did they go?? Have your marathons been canceled or are they still going on?
MCM has turned virtual finally so I have deferred til 2021. I may end up just running the distance on my own since they’re charging more money to do the actual race.

Oh my has it been a scorcher out there or what!? Hope you are doing well and staying healthy! I’m here to recap some miles from last week! It has been both enjoyable and challenging getting it in and just running to maintain the general fitness right now. Plus staying strong and injury free is always the name of the game so I’ve been doing pretty good at that. Let’s see how it all went down!

Monday- 4.31 miles watching the lovely sunset after a busy work day. Just what I needed. I actually found out last week that my 50 miler was postponed to 2021. Fine by me. They moved us all to the roster for next May. I think it was a solid decision given the way the cases have been spiking especially in Texas. It wouldn’t hurt me to not completely run my immune system down and put myself at risk. I will always have a love for that race too. One of my faves.

Tuesday- 6.32 miles of beautiful sunset again. Great way to de-stress, just a quick out and back.

Wednesday- 7.12 miles with hills, massive relative effort according to Strava. It was crazy hot that day.

Thursday AM- 7.02 miles for breakfast in some insane humidity but it got done.

Thursday PM- Double run day miles. 3.30 miles to get in just over 10 miles for the day.

Friday- 4.21 miles with an epic sunrise. So worth it.

Saturday- Had a late night grilling out with neighbors Friday but still managed to roll outta bed for a quick 8.02 miles.

Sunday- Lotsa pool time and a rest day.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Are ya’ll seeing triple digit temps where you live yet?
We’ve had three straight days of temps in the 100s. Brutal.

Let’s chat about last week’s running shall we? I was able to get in just over 51 miles last week. A somewhat light (for me) mileage week but building the base back up for some local races in the later part of the year.

Monday- 7.02 sunset miles enjoying my “brain movies” and de-stressing from the day. Rolling hills. Definitely quite lovely.

Tuesday AM- 5.12 early morning miles getting the legs moving after Monday’s rolling hills run. Legs felt a tad tired but it got done.

Tuesday PM- Double run day miles running on some tired legs. Finished faster than expected. Got in just over 8 miles for the day.

Wednesday AM- 5.32 miles for breakfast. Glorious RUNrise.

Wednesday PM- 3.21 miles. Late RUNch.

Thursday- 7.32 early morning miles getting it done with my breakfast club.

Friday AM- Decided to run with a friend of mine to get in some early miles. 8.11 miles done with what Garmin would like to call a “massive relative effort”. Good times.

Friday PM- 2.02 quick miles at lunch to get in over 10 miles for the day.

Saturday- 10.21 miles. Historic relative effort. Epic sunrise.

Sunday- REST DAY. Ribs and grilled corn at a friends house for the win. Yes, I also like when men do ALL THE GRILLING.

I also laid out all of my 50 mile, 100k and 100 mile buckles over the last several yers just for fun. Still looking for a legit display for these babies.

And there ya have it!

Hope your week is off to a smashingly good start! It is HOT as all get out down here in Texas so my runs lately have been all about survival. I took the miles down a bit last week to allow for some recovery. Let’s see how it all went down!

Monday- 5.11 sunset miles. Much needed after a busy Monday. Honestly I really look forward to this after the long work day. Work has been so hectic lately so it is a huge wonderful stress release.

Tuesday- 7.22 miles after work with some hills thrown in for good measure.

Wednesday AM- 5.25 miles in the morning on Global Running Day! With the most glorious sunrise. So needed this.

Wednesday PM- Double run day miles on Global Running Day! 3.20 miles at lunch. In the crazy hot heat. I’m a sucker for punishment.

Thursday- 7.22 miles with crazy humidity in the early morning. Honestly I think I prefer running in the dead of the heat than these crazy humid mornings. I am more of a dry heat girl though. But gotta get it done. So get ready to hear me continue to b*tch and moan about being drenched every morning.

Friday- REST DAY. Needed a breather from the busy week. I can’t decide if I like Fridays or Sundays better for my rest day. Hmm.

Saturday- 10.01 miles with the WRRC gang! Miles with good friends on a Saturday is where its at.

Sunday- Quick HOT run. Basically another rest/active recovery type of day. Just to get my numbers in for the week. 3.2 miles around the block done.

And there you have it! Nice little recovery week.

What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods? Feeling like summer?! How are you adjusting to the heat/humdiity?
