Weekly Running Report.

Hey there! Hope you all are having a great Monday!! I’m here to recap some running from last week. I was able to get in 71.1 miles last week! And I’ve lived to recap about it. Let’s see how it all went down.

Monday AM- 7.22 miles of RUNrise. Felt good to get this one in early. We had a bit of a cooler front but things have been heating up so quickly!! And when I say COOL front I actually mean temps just below 85 degrees. It is damn near 100 by lunchtime pretty much every day. You’ve gotta love that, right?

Monday PM- 3.02 miles after the gym. Just getting the legs moving after the work day.

Tuesday AM- 8.08 miles with hill repeats thrown in. Torture. But I love torture sometimes…

Tuesday PM- 2.25 faster miles in the evening after teaching a class at the gym. Pace was in the 7s.

Wednesday AM- 7.12 easy miles, conversational with the run club. I’ve been loving Weds runs with friends lately.

Thursday AM- 8.05 miles in the straight up humidity at zero dark thirty. After going out for sushi Weds night this was a tough run. But got it done.

Thursday PM- 3.03 miles in the evening. Love my people watching by the lake.

Friday- 6.03 miles on rest day. Felt like an active recovery day, easy miles.

Saturday- 16.03 miles with WRRC. It was a hot day and of course legs felt tired after running all week. Gearing things back up for ULTRA training…this race will be here before you know it.

Sunday- 10.35 miles before pool time. So glad to get this one done early as usually Sundays I have a hard time getting up and getting it done. Love my back to back weekends.

And there you have it!!

How was your weekend? Are you loving pool time as much as I am?? It is so necessary for Sunday Funday.

Weekly Running Report.

Happy Monday to ya! I am actually excited and ready for a new week to begin. Hopefully it will be a good one!! But first, let’s recap some running from last week! I was able to get in a total of 71.5 miles. Let’s quickly recap!

Monday AM- 7.34 miles in the early AM with one of my running buds. We normally don’t do a run together on this day (usually I run Monday mornings by the lake solo) but thought we’d try something different. It was fun to chat and catch up from the weekend.

Monday PM- 3.03 miles after teaching a class at the gym. It was a little cool down run watching the sunset.

Tuesday AM- 8.02 miles, 7:52 overall pace. This included a few 800s on the track with the run club I run with during the work week. Then I cooled it down on my own. Good stuff and solid speedy miles.

Tuesday PM- Warm up before teaching at gym, quick 2.22 miles. Getting the legs moving after the long work day.

Wednesday AM- 8.05 miles with a lovely sunrise on the 4th of July. Happy to get it in early and happy for run buds that will get up early with me.

Wednesday PM- 4.12 trail miles with my trail running club. We always try to run the trails on holidays and then have a little potluck breakfast/brunch after. Love that crew.

Thursday- 4.25 miles. A bit of a run streak this week. This was a sunset run.

Friday- 7.22 miles in the a.m. before it got way too hot out. I’ve been thinking about making Friday runs a thing every now and again…but typically this is my actual rest day. But run streaking has been fun lately. So we will see how this goes.

Saturday- 20.23 miles with WRRC. It was another “run my hood” event so we got up early and did this run and then went to a pool party after…where lots of celebrating took place. Hey, friends, beverages and a good time by the pool is what summer is all about.

Sunday- 7.12 miles of heat training. OH and then I went to go see the Whitney Houston movie. It was actually a documentary with all of the family in it and goes a little bit more in depth. I liked it but I am a super fan. Ha. So go see it and judge for yourself.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Did you have any pool (or beach) time?

Weekly Running Report.

HAPPY JULY! I am baaaaack y’all! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was long and luxurious!! And much needed.

I also got my miles in during my vacation/staycation! Big shocker there. Are any of you surprised?

Oh how I miss Heather Dubrow. She was my favorite Beverly Hills housewife.

So let’s recap and see how it all went down!

Monday AM- 6.05 miles with my running buddy Kev. Gotta love running friends that just love to run with you at odd times of the morning. This heat has been no joke so I am loving the early morning breeze before that sun comes out blazin. We’ve had nonstop triple digit temps so I’ll take any bit of breeze I can get at this point.

Monday PM- 4.12 miles in the evening…watching the sunset after the gym.

Tuesday AM- 8.22 miles of hills, back with the run club. Actually I was kind of dreading all of those hills post Stars Above Run but I got through it.

Tuesday PM- 3.22 miles at lunchtime…before it got way too hot.

Wednesday- 10.07 miles before hitting up the pool on my day off. Felt good to get it in.

Thursday- Another day off from work…loving my staycation. 6.03 miles at lunch. WAY TOO HOT. I am pretty sure it was above 90 degrees by noon time. Lots of ice cold beverages were consumed on this day.

Friday- Run streak week! I got up early with Kevin again and he did a few miles with me then I finished up on my own. 10.32 miles done. I kind of wish I had every Friday off. Wouldn’t that be lovely.

Saturday AM- 16.16 mile long run with WRRC. Hot and humid. Loving these blooms at the end of my route.

Saturday PM- Just hitting some numbers before the end of the month! 4.12 miles dunski. I think I’m going to start back up with these summer night runs on weekends. I kind of love it.

Sunday- 7.23 miles enjoying some peace and quiet. Had some marvelous brunch afterwards with mama. Everything is better with mimosas.

Plus I was able to get in a total of 324 miles in the month of June. Stella’s got her groove back, baby.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Did you partake in any delicious brunch or mimosas? Tell me about it!

We went to this place called Tupelo Honey and had chicken, greens, mac n cheese. Heaven.

Happy Monday to ya! I’m here to recap some miles from last week!! I was happy to get in 80.8 miles – the most weekly mileage I’ve done in quite some time! This also included a race/run at the ranch on Sunday!! Let’s review and see how it all went down.

Monday- I taught a spin class Monday so I did a quick run after to cool it on down. Just getting the legs moving again after a weekend of back to back running. 4.25 miles done.

Tuesday AM- 10.13 miles with the *Rebel Runners* in the a.m. (yes we actually call ourselves that) I did a few 800s with them on the track and then the rest of this run on my own. Good stuff. It was crazy humid that day also a drizzled a bit. Felt like Florida kind of humidity! Sheesh.

Tuesday PM- 3.32 miles winding down from the busy work day. Sunset watching.

Wednesday AM- 7.03 miles back with the early morning crew. I tell ya I don’t know what I’d do without early run friends in the summer. Talk about motivation to get my hiney out of bed. I just love it.

Wednesday PM- Another social run with WRRC. We got a great view of the city on this quick out and back run. I got just over 4 more miles in on double run day.

Thursday AM- 7.32 miles on “Tempo Thursday” except my legs were toast so this was definitely an easier run. I was having to ease up a bit in order to get ready for another weekend of lots of running.

Thursday PM- 4.15 miles at lunch. Just hitting some numbers before rest day.

Friday- REST DAY. Oh glorious rest day my legs do love you so. And I got a massage on this day which was absolutely glorious.

Saturday- 13.3 miles with WRRC. Followed by a fabulous brunch by the pool. Yum yum and more yum.

Sunday- Running on the ranch!! This was the Stars Above Ranch run with the Dallas Dirt Runners. I chose to run the 6 hour loop. On a triple digit day in June in Texas. Torture myself much?!?! When it was all said and done I got in 27.36 miles And thousands of feet of climbing. Yep. Legs are very much done today. But it’s done. And I’ve got a KILLER tan like no other.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Are you looking forward to anything this week?
3 straight days off from work “staycation” with lots of pool time and fun involved. SOOO today is technically my Thursday! Hollaaaa holla.

Hi, hey and hello there! Hope your Monday is wonderful so far! I’m here to recap some miles from last week’s training!! I don’t know about you but I feel like this summer is just flying by. My next marathon will be here before you know it!! Anyway, let’s get straight to it.

Monday- 4.22 miles before teaching a spin class. It was already crazy hot and humid out, so just getting some more heat training in. And also getting the legs moving after the busy day at the full time job. Mondays are always so crazy busy that way.

Tuesday AM- 10.32 miles of hills with my run club. Ahh hill repeats, I do love to hate you. Great for leg strength though. I actually really do love me some hills even when my legs are tired. Give me the hills over flat roads any day.

Tuesday PM- 3.37 miles after the gym. Watching the sunset…and ending on a 7:40 pace. I will take it.

Wednesday AM- 7.32 solo miles around the lake. Quite peaceful and of course doing a little early morning people watching.

Wednesday PM- 5.15 miles with WRRC. We actually did a hot run in the sun and then some restorative yoga after. I absolutely needed that. Good times with good people.

Thursday AM- 8.22 early miles not really feeling it but got it done. The humidity was sky high that day too. It was all week really. Still getting acclimated here somewhat.

Thursday PM- 5.22 miles in the evening. Just working on hitting those numbers.

Friday- 6.33 miles. Running on my usual rest day – just switching things around a bit, but feeling good feeling great.

Saturday- 20.12 miles with WRRC. This run was CRAZY humid, cooler in the morning but warmed up quickly. That was a rough one but I felt like it was definitely good for me from a mental standpoint. Got it done.

Sunday- REST DAY. Celebrating Father’s Day with my awesome papa! I drove down to Houston (about a 4 hour drive from Dallas) and we ate the BEST shrimp & seafood gumbo I’ve ever had in my entire life. I want some more right about now.

Don’t you just love fun photo apps? It looks like we are an advertisement or something.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend!? Did you celebrate Father’s Day with your papa?

Hi there! Hope you had a terrific weekend. I’m here to recap some miles last week!! Last week was a strong week of training as I ramp things back up for Revel Big Cottonwood! I was able to get in 71.2 miles of running in the Texas sun. Let’s recap and see how it all went down!

Monday AM- 5.22 miles on a spicy hot day at lunchtime. Getting some heat training in and a break from the busy work day.

Monday PM- 3.03 miles after teaching class at gym and watching the sunset.

Tuesday AM- 10.05 miles, back to some breakfast club running with the crew. Love my morning peeps.

Wednesday AM- National Running Day!! Or Global Running Day as it’s now called…it was a great day for some double run day miles. Just over 12 miles that day total. I got up and did 7.2 miles on my own. The sunrise was perfection. Perfect on a day to celebrate the joy of this incredible sport.

Wednesday PM- A little over 5 miles – Actually this was a LUNCH run. It was wine Weds that evening with my girls so I got to squeeze in some HOT miles and boy was it hot. Temps were well into the 90s that day but it felt like triple digits for sure with the humidity.

Thursday- 10.12 miles with a new early morning run group. (and yes they like to run lots of miles like me so it is a win win) They meet actually not too far from where my other posse meets so we may end up combining the groups for some of the Tues/Thurs work week runs. Tomorrow we will do some hills so I may try to get my gang to join in.

Friday- 4.03 miles running on my typical rest day. Pretty uneventful (and HOT already even in the morning) so got it done.

Saturday- 16.17 mile long run. I went out to run with the club I do my long runs with – the White Rock Running Co-Op. We had another ‘run my hood’ event and this lady hosted at her beautiful home. Brunch, pool time and great times running with friends. What more could you ask for to start off an amazing weekend.

Sunday- 10.32 miles of hills and sunshine. Running at my happy place is always fun.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Did you get some sun?! My tan is coming along quite nicely.

Tuesday PM- 3.32 mile cool down after teaching a class at the gym – people watching by the lake.

Thursday AM- 8.25 miles super early morning. That was a little rough but got it done.

Friday- 4.03 miles at lunch. Nice much needed break in the middle of the work day.

Saturday- 18.28 miles with WRRC. It is super fun because they do a “run my hood” event and we all meet at different locations on the weekends. A lot of the peeps that host the runs also happen to have pools so we all take a dip afterwards and enjoy brunch. So yes, it is going to be an amazing summer. So excited that I’ve found such a fun amazing group of folks to run with. Yay yay and triple yay.

Sunday- 11.03 miles of recovery with some hills thrown in. It was a very relaxing run after Saturday’s 18 miler. So happy also for a little cloud cover.

Thursday- 7.36 miles in the hot hot sun again before teaching another class. It is that time of year again with the heat and humidity. Summer will be here before ya know it.

Friday- 11.22 miles at 5 AM. Getting it done on a Friday.
