Weekly Rundown

Hit my highest mileage this week in months!  Marathon training will do that.  I am happy to have a back down week coming up next week before we start jumping the miles again for a few weeks.  Here’s how my week went. weeklyrundownlogoFitness

Monday – I got up early and headed out for a run around my neighborhood.  I haven’t run this route in a while so it was nice to get out there.  I got in 3 miles @10:14 pace.  Felt really good despite the crazy heat.  The rest of the day was spent painting the kitchen. mondayrun

Tuesday – This run was one nasty mess.  It was hot and humid and we were running with some lead shoes.  Holy smokes!   We got in 4 miles @11:43 pace and it wasn’t without constant beeping from my HR monitor too.

Wednesday – Today ended up being my one mile rest day.  Too much going on so it was a perfect day to have a short run.

Thursday – I got up early and ran from a nearby park by myself.  I ran  4 miles and ran at a solid fast pace, @9:01. I met my friend, Kristen, later in the afternoon for Body Pump, making up from missing on Monday.   Today was also the first day of coaching!  We are the neon green group and we have a wonderful bunch of ladies.  The weather was absolutely awful.  I felt terrible because I knew that the weather was going to have an affect of on our run.  We ran 3 minutes and walked 3 minutes.  These ladies did amazingly well!  So proud of them.  We got in just over 1.5 miles.  thursrun

Friday – The weather was absolutely beautiful thanks to a “cold” front that came in and brought dry, cooler air.  I met my sister to run in the morning.  We got in 4.46 miles. 

July’s Mile Total

 Saturday – Same great weather could only mean that we would have an awesome first long run!  Christine and I met up to run 8 miles.  We rocked our run and finished with 8.1 miles @10:57 pace.  We met up with our friend, Cindy, who was running a local relay race and we ran with her for just a bit.

Sunday – Second long run of the weekend and the weather was again cooperating!  We had a beautiful morning for our run.  We felt really good for the whole run and we could not believe that my HR monitor did not beep at all.  Not a peep.  My avg HR was 120.  9 miles @ 10:55sundayrun

Total weekly miles: 35.26

2015 Year to Date: 867.43 on my way to 1500


We ended up with a disjointed week, but that’s alright.  We still managed to cook two of our intended meals and then pieced together the rest with leftovers and take out.

  • Crispy Falafel Salad
  • Fussiloni with beef and ricotta
  • Grilled Buffalo Chicken Wrap
  • Greek Salad with Chicken

  1. Great week!!! 8&9 back to back and great paces – so awesome!!! You had a great month!! What color did you paint your kitchen?! I’m doing mine right now and I’m all over hearing about everyone else’s renovations!

    • Thank you!! We painted the kitchen just from the chair rail down and most the walls, charcoal gray. And we painted the same color on one whole wall as an accent wall. I love it!! It is exactly what I wanted my kitchen to look like. I’ll post pics here soon!! Now to shop accessories! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Wow a 130 plus month and then you did back to back 8 and 9s on a weekend? That to me is dedication. I always know one of my weekend days is ruined because a night before. I have to do my darndest to figure out which one before I go off the deep end while hanging out with friends. It’s rather funny though because its almost like they are offended when I pick my day. I get a lot of “Oh Robb is eating healthy and drinking water. Looks like he will be leaving early and running tomorrow.” They know me too well and they get butt hurt lol.

  3. Wheww! Great job on your July mileage! I’m thinking of taking running back up again because then I can explore the town I’m in on foot (and cover more ground in a shorter period of time)! ๐Ÿ˜€

    That crispy falafel salad sounds awesome! :]
