Weekly run-down

Last week was finally a full week of running and getting to the gym. No snow, no ice, not much sunshine either. But hey, we need the rain. It’s sunny here today though!

Sunday: Gym day

Monday: Rest day

I was very glad to get several days at the gym this week. It was Ally’s spring break so I took a few vacation days. We did a few projects at home, did a little shopping, saw McFarland USA (was soooo good!) I cried.

I painted and organized my pantry. It needed it badly. I should have painted it when we moved in last August but things were crazy and I was just ready to move in!

After (it looks a little better) At least the shelves are white now and not yellow.

Next up, I need to paint the kitchen chairs and I have a chair at my dressing table that needs paint and new fabric.

Ally is raising rabbits this year for her first (and probably last) 4-H project. We have less than 2 weeks to go before they go to auction. They are pretty cute but nasty little things too. They have made a mess in our garage! And they will scratch your arms up too.


I have Rock N’ Roll Dallas half coming up on Sunday. I’m getting excited!

What are you training for?

Working on any home projects?

Happy running!

Weekly recap

I’m starting to get more in a routine again. Moving is hard work and it gets in the way of running, that’s for sure. We are still house hunting and hope to get settled soon.

It has been hard getting used to the humidity and not feeling like I suck at running.  But, I do love the track workouts and am very excited to see the results this fall.

Here are the recent posts if you missed them.

Weekly training recap2

Training this week:

Sunday: Rest day

Monday: Rest day

Tuesday: Track, 10 x 200’s with 200 recovery, with 2 mile warm-up

Wednesday: Rest day

Thursday: 8 miles, 2 mile warm-up, 2 miles of Fartleks and 4 miles not-so-easy-but-doable pace

Friday: Rest day

Saturday: 11 miles. It was 80 degrees when we started at 5AM.

You might look at this week and think, “she took a lot of rest days”. Yes I did. Marathon training is about to get into full swing and I figured I better rest while I can. Right now I am signed up for 2 marathons and will sign up for a half in October. The plan is the Michelob half on October 26, Dallas Full on December 14 and Rock N Roll New Orleans January 25. Then I think I’ll be hibernating!

Ally starts 7th grade in 9 days. I cannot believe that. Time flies ya’ll. It’s crazy how fast she is growing up.

Anyone else run track workouts?

What does your fall and winter race schedule look like?
