Workouts - Last Week Today - Jun 5

picsart_05-01-02.25.10.jpg

This week I didn't do much running at all. My only run was Sunday for my long run.

I would really like to go for a run!

I helped close out an office at work on Tuesday-Thursday during the week and spend a lot of time packing and running around.  I was so exhausted after those days! I am totally not used to manual labor!

 

Here is how my week lined up:

Sunday - 9 miles easy (average pace 12:04). This run was anything but easy. My intentions were to get out the door early... reality set in and I didn't get out until 10 and by that time it was steamy. I ended up taking it slow and taking walking water breaks at every mile and getting 'er done. This seems to be a pattern with me... I'm just not a morning person!

Monday - Rest

Tuesday - Rest, after office move

We had more storms in Houston Wednesday-Friday.  This spring has been very wet.  While I don't mind running in the rain, I have to draw the line when there is lightening. If this doesn't slow down, I'll need to get a boat for the commute to work.

Wednesday - Rest, after office move

Thursday - Rained out

Friday - I had planned to meet the hubs up at the deer lease, but that got rained out too.  I just couldn't see myself driving in a torrential downpour for 3 hours.

Saturday - Woke up early and headed out to the deer lease. It was wet and muddy, but we got some hiking in.  We celebrated the hubs birthday up there too, and he got his BAS (big ass steak).

  1. I have weeks like these when my miles are low- I just use them as a time to recover and then get back in the game the next week :)

  2. I have trouble hitting the snooze button one too many times on the weekends. My runs definitely suffer when I don't force myself out the door early. I know you must be sick of all that rain. I hope you have better weather this week!

  3. Steamy runs = blech. I had the worst one so far yesterday. Kudos for getting that long run done! Your deer lease property looks fun. I enjoy just being outdoors. We went deep sea fishing yesterday and it was awesome! Thanks for linking with us Vicki!

  6. That is a Big Ass Steak, did he eat every bite? How much fun is that mud riding. I reckon there is no shortage of mud either huh.

2017 Chicago Marathon Recap

Last weekend I ran my second marathon... the Chicago Marathon. This is my 2017 Chicago Marathon Recap!



The week prior, the hubs decided he didn't want to go to Chicago... citing some pretty lame excuses.  I wasn't too worried about that as I am not afraid to travel on my own.



I flew into Chicago on Friday morning.  The plane from Houston seemed to be full of folks running in the marathon.  I sat by a young couple who were also running (his 1st marathon, her 7th).  After landing up in Chicago, I took the Orange Line into the city and checked into my hotel, then headed back out for some lunch and then to take in the Expo.
The Expo


The Expo was CRAZY! I retrieved my bib, shirt and wandered around for a bit.  I tried shopping in the Nike area, but after I was shoved a couple of times, I lost all interest.  With all the craziness, I decided I needed to find the Goose Island beer bus for a little sample.

I checked out several booths and then headed to the Runners World stage for the cour…

Brazos Bend 50k Recap

On April 7th, I ran my very first 50k at Brazos Bend 50.  The event was a Trail Racing Over Texas race located at Brazos Bend State Park outside of Needville, TX.  This is my Brazos Bend 50k recap.
Pre-race...
I had gone into Houston after work to pick up my race packet ahead of time... along with my bib and race shirt, they also had bonus swag, for this race it was Altra Gaiters.  Race day-eve brought me a little visitor.... yup, Aunt Flo decided to come for a stay. This definitely put a little twist in my plans.  I took off work a little early so that I could get dinner at a reasonable hour, my clothes laid out, and to bed early.  My race-day eve fueling was my lucky veggie burger and sweet potato fries at Bella Green.



After some thought I decided to wear my hydration vest to carry necessary supplies instead of my handheld.  Once I got home, I laid out my clothes, got my supplies ready and headed to bed.  My wake-up call was 3am!

It was tough figuring out what to wear.  The forecast cal…

2018 Houston Marathon Recap

Last weekend I ran my third marathon... the Houston Marathon. This is my 2018 Houston Marathon Recap!



I ran the Houston Marathon last year, it was my very first marathon.  It was such a fun time, I signed up again as soon as early bird entry opened up.
ABB 5k
I chose to run the ABB 5k on the day before the marathon.  I figured since I had to be in Houston to pick up my packet, I might as well use it for my shakeout run.  The temps were mighty chilly that morning.  I bundled up and headed in early to pick up my packet.  After I dropped my bag (and jacket) off at the bag drop, I was very happy to see the convention center was open to wait in.

15 minutes prior to race start, I headed out to use the port-a-cans and line up.  I chose to line up with the 11 minute mile group in an attempt to keep my pace super easy.  They sang the Star Spangled Banner and we were off right on time!

I had to do a bit of bobbing and weaving as there were several walkers who lined up ahead of me.  Within a half mil…
