Weekly Running Report.

Hey there and happy Monday to ya! Hope you have some fun in store for the week. Last week’s running workouts were awesome and I was able to get in 85.7 miles in!! So, training is going well leading up to my next ULTRA race- the Hachie 50 miler!

Let’s recap and see how it all went down.

Monday AM- 5.26 miles (with faster strides) after teaching a crazy early spin class! It was dark and rainy but nice to see a different route in the morning. Got it done and out of the way.
Monday PM- 5.03 miles after the 9 to 5 job. The weather in Texas overall has been beautiful and finally spring is starting to make an appearance in a major way! So I loved watching the sunset on double run day.
Tuesday AM- 7.11 splendid (and hilly) lunch miles. I used my entire lunch break for this run but it was hashtag worth it. Love.
Tuesday PM- 3.21 miles at night and can I just say how much I am LOVING the extra daylight in the evenings? I really think it has been doing something for my mood. I am a lover of sunshine what can I say. Fun fact I even have a SUN tattoo. So maybe that is why?
Wednesday AM- Lots of double run day miles last week. 5.11 miles at lunch with the sunshine. Thankfully I have a gym next door to where I work so that’s real convenient for these lunch runs.
Wednesday PM- 5.22 miles at night doing some people watching to get double digits in for the day. I was on a roll.
Thursday- Back running with the breakfast run club! 10.12 miles of rolling hills.
Friday- Back to back long run fun!! I decided to do my 21 miler on Friday since I had some St. Patrick’s Day celebrating to do on Saturday. I am in LOVE with Friday long runs. It definitely brings new energy into one of my favorite days of the week. 21.33 miles done.
Saturday- 17.03 miles done with my Saturday long run crew, White Rock Running Co-Op. A few of us ran long and then went to the St. Patrick’s Day parade after. All green everything.

Sunday- Sunday was an absolutely gorgeous day! Everyone was out and about since temps wee in the 60s and 70s. Quick 6.31 miles to hit my numbers for the week.

And there you have it! Plus a #selfie, just because.

How was your weekend? Did you do any St. Patrick’s Day celebrating?
Not a ton of partaking in the adult beverages for me this year. Running high mileage makes you kind of an old lady. But I like it like that. Still had fun.

Weekly Running Report.

Hi there and happy MILEAGE Monday! I’m checking in with y’all and also wanting to do a quick recap from last week’s workouts! I was able to get in 72.3 miles of running last week!! It was a great week indeed with some back to back long runs included. Let’s recap and see how it all went down!

Monday- 8.34 miles in the evening time. I always kind of have to ease back into the work week after my weekend long runs. So it felt good to get the legs moving after a long day of work.
Tuesday AM- Back to some double run days! 8.03 miles in the morning solo on the lake. Did some people watching. Great way to start the day. And the weather was starting to get pretty pleasant out.
Tuesday PM- Lovely lunch time miles! I love lunch runs especially on a nice day. 4 miles done and then quick shower and back to work.
Wednesday AM- 8.36 miles in the morning with friends. They usually do a loop around the neighborhood and then I add on at the end to get to my desired mileage. We did a few faster miles thrown in the middle.
Wednesday PM- 3.34 mies in the evening after work. Just a quick lake loop. But got another double run day in for the day.
Thursday- 8.12 a.m. miles with some hills thrown in there. I also taught a class at the gym that evening.
Friday- 16.02 mile Friday morning long run! Fridays, long running and coffee are probably a few of my favorite things.
Saturday- Back to back long run FUN!! I had to teach a spin class at the gym at 10 a.m.- so got this one done early with WRRC. 16.12 miles done.

Then celebrated a friend’s birthday at Lake Lewisville. Temperatures were in the 70s on Saturday and beautiful and sunny! What a great day and night it was with friends.

Sunday- REST DAY. A much needed one at that.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Do anything fun?

Weekly Running Report.

Hi there and happy Monday! Hope you have some fun this week in store. I am here to recap some miles from last week’s training!! 50 miler training continues after running the Cowtown 50k. Let’s recap and see how it all went down!

Monday- This was the day after I paced the Cowtown Ultra (which was a blast- click the link to catch up if you missed!!) so I took a complete rest day which was glorious. I also have decided to stop teaching Monday night spin class so now my teaching schedule will only be Tuesday and Thursday nights after work. This will definitely allow me more time to train (RUN) and also just have some more time for ME!! I have to say it was really hard to let this class go, but it will allow me to bring more energy into my already packed Tuesday/Thursday night classes. Which I am absolutely thrilled about. So, YAY for that.

Tuesday AM- 10.13 miles back out on the lake in the mornings. I really have been enjoying solo runs in the mornings and feel like it is has been a great de-stressor. Plus, when I run closer to home, I go straight to the coffee bar at my apartments and get some delicious Keurig coffee. My two fave K cups right now- Hawaiian coffee and Swiss Miss HOT CHOCOLATE. Yaaas.

Tuesday PM- 3.20 miles after teaching class at the gym. Double run days did make a small appearance during this little week of recovery. Loved it.

Wednesday- 10.03 miles with my breakfast run club. I started the run with them and then did the last few on my own.

Thursday- 7.22 miles early morning with crazy COLD and WIND. This was when the temps dropped from 60s to 30s in a matter of 24 hours! Yeah weather was quite the roller coaster.

Friday- Back to some long run fun! 15.04 miles on a Fri-yay! A few of those miles were 8 minute miles so it felt good to move a little faster. One of my friends met up with me at the end to finish strong. I finally feel like I’m getting my speed back after BB100 and that certainly feels great.

Saturday- 17.02 miles with WRRC! The back to back long runs felt absolutely amazing. I was a little stiff after this run but joints and everything still feel good and strong. Body is holding up well. Did some good stretching after this run too. Confession- I have been bad lately at foam rolling. I will have to do that now that I have extra time during the week not teaching (!) so many classes at the gym. Also, my deep tissue massage is coming up for the month. YAAAS.

Also, grilled scallop and shrimps for the win. I went on a lil dinner and movie date. We saw “What Men Want” with Taraji P. Henson. Great date night movie!! Hey the fellas will like it too. Hilarious and highly recommended.

Sunday- Quick afternoon miles. 5.22 miles around the lake when the sun came out just a bit. I am excited for the sun to come back in the coming week. Check out this forecast. YAY, warmer days ahead.

And there you have it!

How was your week? What is the weather like in your neck of the woods?

Weekly Running Report.

Happy Monday! Things are busy in my neck of the woods (& I am actually recovering from a 50K race I did yesterday! Ya know, NBD) but thought I would drop in to share some of last week’s miles with you! I was able to get in 71.6 miles last week. Woohoo! Let’s see how it all went down.

Monday AM- 4.22 miles in the a.m. Temps were chilly in the beginning of the week last week but pleasant. So just a little jaunt on the lake before the busy work day.
Monday PM- 3.02 miles after teaching a class at the gym. Getting the double run day in for the day.
Tuesday- 8.13 solo miles listening to some Spotify jams. If you are looking for some good running music check out some of my playlists on there btw. I use them for spin class mostly but I guarantee you will find something to fit your run mood.
Wednesday AM- 7.23 miles after the gym. The sun started coming out later on in the week. Sunshine runs equal a happy Chelsea.
Wednesday PM- 3.02 sunset miles. Love running sunrise to sunset. Legs were feeling good so I did some faster miles and threw some strides in there.
Thursday- 8.24 miles back with the breakfast run club. Threw some rolling hills in there for good measure.
Friday- 6.32 miles. Last run before Sunday’s 50k!
Saturday- REST DAY. And enjoyed some phenomenal brunch with the ‘rents.

Sunday- Cowtown Ultra 50k day!! Those of you who have been around a while know that I’ve been an official PACER for this race the last few years. So I paced the 50k distance with my pace buddy.

We had a good ole time, laughing, meeting people and enjoying some pretty fantastic racing weather. Recap to come.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Did you hit up any good brunch spots?

Monday- 7.12 miles exploring a new route after teaching a class at the gym. It was quite dark out in the evening but I’m enjoying practicing my night miles a bit.
Tuesday AM- 8.20 miles in the ‘hood. Another Dora the Explorer type of run. I found some new hills! Always fun.
Tuesday PM- 2.23 miles – a little cool down on the lake with some faster strides thrown in while people watching. 7 and 8 minute miles.
Wednesday AM- 8.24 miles in the morning with the run club. Relaxed miles and convo.
Wednesday PM- 4.52 miles at lunch. 8:38 pace. Just getting my double run day in.
Thursday- 10.22 miles back with the run club. Starting out with the group and finishing on my own.
Friday- 5.37 miles. Keeping it short and sweet on a Fri-yay.
Saturday- 16.02 miles with the co-op. Long running and mimosas. Nuff said.
Sunday- 10.22 miles before some MARDI GRAS celebrating! We had crawfish which was amazing and then more good grub and a photoshoot.

Love my run buds.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Any fun runs or races coming up?

Weekly Running Report.

Happy Monday to ya! I am here to recap my week of running!! I was able to get in a glorious 70.7 miles last week. So pumped for ultras and some spring races coming up oh so soon. Let’s recap and see how it all went down!

Monday- 7.21 miles after teaching a class at the gym. I have found a new Monday route so I’m kind of in love.
Tuesday AM- 8.31 miles running a few hills with the early morning crew.
Tuesday PM- Double run day miles. 5.03 miles in the evening…a lot of my runs last week were pretty dark so I had all of the lights flashing. I don’t know how people run early mornings or at night without lights. They must have pretty good night vision! That I do not. I learned pretty quickly especially doing trail ultras that headlamps are my BFF.
Wednesday- 7.21 miles with some early morning rain. But a peaceful run doing some brainstorming on a few projects going on.
Thursday AM- 8.36 miles with my pink hydration vest in the ‘hood. I’ve been wearing my hydration packs a lot lately especially when it rains because I stash my phone and keys and things in there. Check this one out if you are in need of one BTW.
Thursday PM- 3.02 miles after the gym. People watching and enjoying the night air.
Friday- Running on rest day. 5.22 easy breezy miles. Just keeping the legs moving and the momentum going.
Saturday- Long run Saturday! 18.03 miles with the WRRC crew. With some faster miles thrown in the middle. Confession I fueled this run with a snickers bar and nothing else except water + electrolytes. Haha it was everything.
Sunday- 8.31 lunch time miles while listening to a podcast. HEY my Bravo fans they have Watch What Happens live as a podcast now. Thank you, Andy Cohen.

And there you have it!

How was your week! Any fun races coming up?

Weekly Running Report.

Happy Monday to ya! We are recapping some miles from last week! So far training for upcoming ultra races is going great. I am super excited to be returning to Hachie 50 in May! It will be my 5th 50 miler so I’m hoping to do some fast running out there. Plus, I am really ready for some springtime running! Enough of this winter weather stuff. Actually it is supposed to be quite warm today (!) so that’s a little bit of a spring teaser before the cold comes back. Gotta love that Texas up and down weather.

Let’s see how it all went down!

Monday- 10.21 miles on my random day off/long weekend. I actually had some college friends in town but we had a bit of down time in the morning before we did some wine tasting. Wish I could do that every Monday. HA.
Tuesday AM– 5.11 miles with a few tempo miles thrown in there. This was a seriously GREAT run. Nice confidence builder that I still have some speed in me even after doing all of these ultras.

Tuesday PM- 3.03 miles warming up before teaching a class at the gym. Waking up the legs from the work day.
Wednesday AM- 10.25 miles with my breakfast run club crew. Back to super early mornings.
Wednesday PM- 3.32 miles after the work day. Watching the sunset in the evening.
Thursday- 10.21 early miles, temps were starting to warm up towards the end of the week but still a little chilly and rainy in the mornings. I took the evening off from double run days since I had a big run the next day which worked out great.
Friday- 20.22 mile long run! As I told y’all I’m starting to really enjoy doing my long runs on Fridays! It gets it out of the way and then I’m not so exhausted on the weekends. I still run Saturdays though and have been doing some back to back long run stuff. I had a friend meet me towards the end of this run as she was starting her run since she works from home. So it was nice to have a buddy to help me get it all done.
Saturday- 16.02 miles with the WRRC crew. Again this was kind of drizzly foggy run but the legs felt good and I actually ran this one a bit faster than Friday’s run. Success.
Sunday- 4.22 relaxed miles in the morning to hit 80+ miles for the week. Done and done.

Oh plus I made buffalo cauliflower on Super Bowl Sunday! I am absolutely making this dish again. Perfect with the Frank’s Red Hot.

And there you have it!

How was your week last week? Did you get some strong runs in?!

Weekly Running Report.

Hi there and happy Monday! I’m here to recap some miles from last week. The weekly mileage is getting up there as I train for some upcoming ultra races! I was able to get in 80.7 miles last week. Let’s recap and see how it all went down!

Monday AM- 6.31 miles in the early a.m. I’ve been loving starting my day running with the sunrise on Mondays. It’s always a reflective and chill type of run after doing some long runs on the weekends.
Monday PM- 2.01 mile warm up before teaching spin. Just getting the legs going again after the crazy long work day.
Tuesday- 10.21 miles with some hill repeats thrown in. Miles for breakfast.
Wednesday AM- 8.31 early morning miles, did a loop with run buds then finished the run solo. Last week was almost perfect running weather everyday. Crisp and cool in the mornings with the sun coming out to warm things up a bit. Loved it.
Wednesday PM- Took advantage of the great weather once again with a double run day. 3.31 miles done.
Thursday- 10.02 miles with the early morning run club. It feels good to get back to doing my morning 10 milers. I’m also feeling like some speed is slowly coming back after Brazos Bend 100. Yay for strong legs and recovery.

Also I’ve been enjoying a lot of post run sauna sessions. Great way to warm up after chilly morning runs for sure. Teaching classes at the gym definitely has tons of perks.

Friday- So we had some crazy cold/rainy/windy weather coming in over the weekend. So this long run got pushed to Friday early morning. YES, on a weekday work day morning. Thankfully it was Friday and not a whole lot was going on work wise so I knew I would be alright. A lot of COFFEE was had on this day though. 22.02 miles done.
Saturday- 12.22 miles with freezing rain. Yuck! I am just not a freezing rain/snow kinda gal. Anyway, thankful for run buds that came out to brave the weather with me. Got some back to back double digits in so yay for that. And yay for post run bevvies.

Sunday- 6.32 miles on the lake ending with speedy strides. This felt more like a rest day but happy to hit some numbers for the week.

And there you have it! Looks like I earned some brownie bourbon balls according to Smashrun?!! Haha. Who has the recipe?

Have a great Monday and week!

How’s your running going? What’s in your coffee cup today?
Double shot of espresso.

Weekly Running Report.

Happy Monday to ya! Hope you had a great weekend. We are recapping some miles from last week today! I was able to get in 70.6 miles total, so training for upcoming ultra races is coming along well! Let’s recap and see how things went down.

Monday- 4.22 miles after teaching a class at gym. Honestly this was more like a rest day for me, as I was coming off of a pretty high mileage week the previous week. So it just felt good to get the legs moving and get something in.
Tuesday AM- 10.11 miles with the early run crew, some of the group ran track so I warmed up there with a few strides and then finished up my run on some hills.
Tuesday PM- Back to double run days! I did a quick 3.05 mile run in the evening, doing some people watching.
Wednesday PM- 6.31 miles on the lake in the morning. Peaceful and quiet solo miles.
Wednesday PM- 4.02 super relaxed miles after work. Funny story I did this run in FLIP FLOPS. Not something I always do but I left my shoes at home and had some sport sandals in the car. Thankfully it was not too chilly out. Haha, it was kind of silly and fun. Maybe I should get me some official Luna Sandals and make it a thing?
Thursday- 10.33 miles of hills back with the run group. It always feels good to get in a strong double digit run before you start the work day.
Friday- 7.12 miles to kick off the weekend. Nice breezy lake miles.
Saturday- 17.11 miles EARLY morning! I had to sub a class at the gym so I had a 4 a.m. wakeup call for this one. But it got done.
Sunday- 8.33 Sunday fun day miles. Ending with some speedy strides at a 7 something pace.

And there you have it!

How was your weekend? Do anything fun?
Caught up on some Netflix. Aside from the running I was pretty lazy but loved every minute of it.

Weekly Running Report.

Happy Monday! I am back to doing my weekly running reports. Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Here is a quick recap of last week’s miles – which came out to 83.3 miles of running! I have a couple of ultras on the horizon so we are gearing up for some fun. Let’s see how it all went down.

Monday- As most of you know last week was the BIG Dallas to Ft. Worth fun run that I do every year! 33.3 miles. Legs actually held up better than I thought they would. If you missed it you can catch the recap here. I love running crazy long with people as crazy as I am.

Tuesday- 3.02 miles in the evening after teaching a spin class. The next day was definitely recovery just to shake the legs out. I really do feel better after runs like that if I can get the legs going and the blood flowing. Even if the run is short, for me it is better than sitting on my couch eating bon bons. (What are bon bons really by the way? Has anyone had one? Do tell me what they are all about.)
Wednesday- 4.22 miles in the cold rain in the evening. I’ve found a great route over by work that I like to run so this worked out well. I am mostly a morning runner you know but it is good sometimes to switch it up.
Thursday- Another COLD, rainy morning but 6.32 miles done. Texas weather is being bipolar again (the high is 70 something degrees today, YAY springtime temps) but yeah I believe that morning it was 30 something. Ice cold rain calls for hot coffee.

Friday- Run streak week! 6.31 miles on the lake. Friday runs are always pretty relaxed before the long run on Saturday. This is typically when I would do a rest day but it has been fun maintaining my sanity and running all week long.
Saturday- 20.02 miles with the run club! I did get a massage on Friday night so that helped revive the legs a bit. But I need to start incorporating some back to back long runs for ultra training. Anyway, mimosas and breakfast tacos were had immediately after.
Sunday- I ended up having a low key Saturday which made room for some Sunday funday miles! 10.13 miles running a new route with my Sunday morning run crew.
Oh, and I tried a new chicken place! Cowboy Chicken. Fitting for Texas, right?

This place was pretty good last minute comfort food type of meal. I hear they also do rotisserie chicken tortilla soup and enchiladas so I have to go back for that.

And there you have it!

How has your running going? Tell me something fun about your weekend!
We celebrated the Cowboys winning on Saturday. Sometimes I like to be a Dallas Cowboys fan.
