Workouts - Last Week Today - July 31


Had a great week of running this week. I'm in my 3rd week training for the Houston Half.  My mileage is increasing a little bit, and I've had one "speed" work session.

We've been getting afternoon showers in Houston this week, which brought down the temps.... mid 80's sure felt better than mid 90's!  I was even able to get a run in without walking water breaks.

Here is how my week shook out:

Sunday - 9 miles slow (average pace 11:00)

Monday - Rest.

Tuesday - 5 miles easy effort (average pace 10:28).


Wednesday - Rest.

Thursday - Rest

Friday - 5 miles - 1 mi slow, then 3 x 1 mile fast (9:29, 9:27, 9:27) with 2 minute recovery, 1 mi slow.


Saturday - 3.1 miles (average pace 9:29) - Ran my 5k for the Just Keep Running virtual race.


Total miles = 22

I'm linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippi Piddlin’ for the Weekly Wrap,and Nicole, Annmarie, Jen, and Michelle for Wild Workout Wednesday.

  1. Looks like a great week. Sometimes our afternoon showers just seem to make things steamier!

  2. We haven't had our typical afternoon showers for a couple of weeks now. I miss them! And so does our grass! You had a solid week of training! Our paces seem pretty similar. I ran my virtual race when my sister was here visiting a couple of weeks ago. I can't wait to see that medal! I'm trying not to skip speed work, which is very easy to do during marathon training. Thanks for linking, Vicki!

  3. We were so unsually hot for soooo long -- it's cooled off, but ti's steamy and raining a lot. I guess that's better . . . looks like you're nailing your workouts!

  4. Thanks! Sometimes here too, but last week they dropped temps over 10 degrees!

  5. I'm excited to see the medal too!

  6. Way to go!! We've had a little break in the heat here in NYC - it's been amazing!

    Nice job with your half marathon training! I'm nervous but excited to start doing speed's been so long!

  8. Nice work this week! I still can't imagine running in 80 degrees though...I avoid the heat as much as I can :P

  9. Thanks! This week has been tough, last night it was still 92 at 7:30 pm... whew!

  10. I don't mind the afternoon shower as long as it late! Let it come and go between 3-6 and man it is really worse than before the rain! But here lately we've gotten into a pattern of pop up thunder storms coming just about daily!

  11. We're out of the pattern now :-( It was nice while it lasted...
