Hey there and happy new week! The leaves are starting to change around here like crazy!! Hope you all are off to a great start this week.

Let’s recap some thangs, shall we?! Starting with some weekly miles. I’m taking things back a bit in anticipation for my 2nd ULTRA of the year – the REMIX 50k in October!

This will be merely a fun run for me. A comeback ultra of sorts. Just to get back out there and go play on the trails. Plus I just really need to get away! Time to go play in the forest, social distancing style.

Monday- 4.32 miles in the hood to start off my Monday. Just relaxed miles after my 50 mile week last week. Enjoying the view.

Tuesday- 5.02 sunset miles. Picked up the pace towards the end and added some rolling hills.

Wednesday AM- 4.32 miles in the AM. Getting it done despite some sticky humidity.

Wednesday PM- Double run day miles. 4.02 miles in the evening. Saw lots of pretty fall colors.

Thursday AM- 7.12 miles in the morning. Could and some more sticky humidity. Breakfast run club miles.

Thursday PM- 3.30 miles just a tad faster in the evening to get in over 10 miles for the day.

Friday- 5.12 miles after bootcamp to the tune of this crazy gorgeous sunrise.

Saturday- Took the miles down a bit. 7.11 miles with some fall foliage.

Sunday- REST DAY after back to back running days.

And there you have it!

Are the leaves changing color in your hood? I’m loving all of the fall colors. Fall time is my jam.

Wednesday PM- 2.02 miles to get in 8.3 for the day.

Thursday AM- 7.11 morning miles with the breakfast run club. Hilly miles at that. Felt good to get back to those rolling hills. Hills are just spadework in disguise they say.

Hey there and happy Monday to ya! Hope you had a lovely weekend full of sun, running and relaxation!! I got a bit of running and just trying to maintain a solid weekly mileage base at this point. Feels good to be feeling good, healthy and injury free! That is always the name of the game.
Let’s recap some weekly mileage!
Monday- I got in an active recovery day on this day. I’m working on incorporating more cross training into my schedule (plus since COVID has jacked up my gym teaching schedule) so bootcamp has been doing the trick. Hella sore doing the bootcamp workouts but it’s all for the GOOD. I need more power in my miles and I know doing more movements when I’m not running will surely help for the better.
Tuesday- Bootcamp run + sunset miles. Since the days haven’t been as crazy hot I’ve been enjoying running later in the day. Gotta mix it up to keep shocking that body. 5.11 miles done.
Wednesday- 5.04 miles of city lights. This was a relaxed run just getting in time on my feet and working out some bootcamp soreness.
Thursday- 10.12 miles after work! I saw some leaves changing. Gotta love the fall foliage. Added a few lovely hills too.
Friday AM- 4.34 miles at lunch to breathe during the work day. Felt good to get the legs moving.
Friday PM- 3.21 sunset miles. Nice and easy before long run Saturday.
Saturday- 16.02 miles of keeping the base building with some AMAZING weather! It definitely felt like fall. I could have kept going but wanted to see how my body would feel since I did 15 the week before. Feels good to be building and feeling good doing it and pushed the pace a few miles.
Sunday- Rest day! Much needed relax time.
And there ya have it!
How was your weekend? Has it cooled down at all where you are??

Hey there! It was a busy start to the week (plus the long holiday weekend) but I am back!! Let’s recap some miles from last week, shall we?

Weather wise it has been a little less humid and more enjoyable so it’s helping me keep my hopes up that fall weather is approaching! I tell you what I’m so very ready for the leaves to change color and for crisp cooler mornings! Enough of this hot summer stuff. Plus I’m ready for some fall racing! Excited for this one coming up oh so soon.

I’m slowly taking the miles back up plus I’ve been adding in bootcamp workouts. And feeling that muscle soreness feels OH SO GOOD again. Sadistic, I know.

Monday- Active recovery day after the weekend of running. I did some yoga stretching. This girl is my fave if you enjoy YouTube workouts. I personally love working out in my living room.

Tuesday- 4.11 miles in the evening starting to feel more alive again. Relaxed effort then picked up the pace a bit in the end.

Wednesday AM- Back to double run day miles! 6.23 miles at lunch. Felt so good to get out a bit and breathe during the work day.

Wednesday PM- 3.3 miles after work to get in over 9.5 miles for the day.

Happy September! It has already been a hectic work week for me but we are coming up on a lovely holiday weekend!! I am super excited about that. Let’s recap some miles from last week!

At the moment I’m still maintaining and building my numbers back up so I can have a strong end of the year and a fun 2021 race year. Let’s hope some spring races stay on the calendar.

And maybe some winter in person or rouge type races if we’re lucky. My ‘Chelsea Trot’ actually is fast approaching. Always a favorite…

Monday- Active recovery day, getting in some yoga stretching after the long work day. I’ve got a lot more responsibility work wise so unwinding with a little down time was much needed to get back in the groove of the week.

Tuesday- 6.31 sunset miles. Did some rolling hills for good measure.

Wednesday AM- Back to them double run days! 5.21 miles to the tune of a beautiful sunrise in the morning.

Wednesday PM- 4.02 miles to get in a 15k for the day. After work miles a touch faster than the morning run.

Thursday AM- Breakfast run club miles. Had to be a work early so I squeezed in 6.32 miles at 5 something AM.

Thursday PM- 2.22 quick miles right after work to loosen up the legs after the long day. Feeling good feeling great.

Friday- 10.11 mile solo run in the morning just enjoying some time on my feet. This particular route has water and potty breaks throughout so that makes me forever happy. Much needed with the Texas heat and humidity.

Saturday- Back to back double digit miles for the win. Another 10 miles of splendid sunrise.

Sunday- Much needed rest and reflection day.

And there you have it! Over 44 miles for the week with 2 rest days plugged in.

Happy Monday to ya! Hope it is great one so far. Let’s recap some miles and smiles from last week!

I’ve been maintaining some lower-ish miles while I try to figure out my purpose in life. HA. Actually it is just nice to not have a major racing master plan right now. Working on it though…

Let’s get into it!

Monday- 5.11 sunset miles after the busy work day. Much needed and legs felt pretty fresh. Even ran faster than my usual Monday recovery run.

Tuesday- 5.22 miles with a few slight hills. Was just in a hill climbing mood that day and found some rollers to get things going.

Wednesday AM- 6.31 miles in the AM. The most glorious of sunrises.

Wednesday PM- 3.02 miles in triple digit temps. It was a nice little form of torture. Over 15k miles total for the day.

Thursday AM- 6.37 miles with my breakfast run club. Rolling hills to start the day.

Thursday PM- 2.05 quick miles at lunch to break up the work day. Triple digit temps again so this was a bit of heat training.

Happy Monday to ya! Hope everyone is all well and good. I’m here to recap some miles from last week! I took the miles down a bit just to mix it up and allow for some more active recovery. Let’s see how it all went down!

Monday- Rest day while doing some active recovery. Pigeon pose yoga move is kind of my jam right now. I also was house/cat sitting for a friend of mine so the week was quite busy on the personal side. It was nice to run from a different location though. Sometimes that is all you need to change it up.

Tuesday AM- Back at it on a Tuesday. I was strapped for time in the morning so I did 4.21 miles watching a glorious sky.

Tuesday PM- 3.32 miles on double run day. Just a quick out and back watching the sunset.

Wednesday- Changed things a bit and ran in the night. 5.12 miles enjoying the scenery and unwinding after work. The humidity was once again intense but I think Im finally getting acclimated to the summer running.

Thursday AM- 7.02 miles in the morning with the breakfast run club. This is always my most favorite run of the week. I get it done super early and get some good hill climbing in too.

Thursday PM- Double run day miles. Quick 2.38 jaunt around the block to get in a little over a 15k in for the day.

Friday- 3.02 mies at lunch. Love my RUNch getaways.

Saturday- 10.02 miles to the tune of this incredible sunrise.

Sunday- Rest day. Plus pool time.

And there you have it! Making room to build back up a bit this week.

How was your weekend? Get any pool time in?

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.

How was your weekend?! Share some tidbits with me!
