Workouts - Last Week Today - August 7


Had another great week of running. I'm in my 4th week training for the Houston Half.  My mileage is increasing bit by bit.

The heat is back in H-town.  Thursday evening the temp was still at 92 degrees at 7:30 pm... whew!

I ran in the Southern Star Brewing Company 5k run on Saturday... it was a fun time with running, and craft beer.  I even took home 3rd place in my AG! Look for a race recap later this week.

Here is how my week shook out:

Sunday - 10 miles slow (average pace 11:30)


Monday - Rest.

Tuesday - 5 miles easy effort (average pace 10:21).


Wednesday - Rest.

Thursday - 5 miles easy effort (average pace 10:54)


Friday - Rest.

Saturday - 3.1 miles (average pace 8:46) - Southern Star Brewing Co. 5k


Total miles = 23

I'm linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippi Piddlin’ for the Weekly Wrap; MCM Mama Runs, Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and My no-guilt life for Tuesdays on the Run; and Nicole, Annmarie, Jen, and Michelle for Wild Workout Wednesday.

  1. Another great week for you! Congratulations on the 5k age placement. Your pace is very impressive is this heat, ma'am. I hope that beer was COLD. Thanks for linking, Vicki!

  2. Congrats on your AG win - a race sponsored by a craft beer company sounds like a lot of tun!

  3. Congrats on the 3rd place! That looks like a fun race!

  4. I'm so envious of all you people with AG awards. It would be enticing to race ore if I could ever win one, but that just ain't happening. Congrats!

    That looks like a really solid week considering your heat!

  5. Great job on your 5k! 8:46 pace is great! I do not see 8's hardly at all and especially in this heat I know what effort it takes!

  6. Oh I hear ya on the heat. When is fall weather coming? Congratulations on getting 3rd place in your age during the 5k.

  7. Thanks! I was totally surprised when I saw those 8's on my watch. Yes... the beer was COLD (but not for long).

  8. Thanks! It was a lot of fun.

  9. Thanks! It was a fun race.

  10. Thanks! It came as a total surprise.

  11. Thanks! I was a little surprised when I kept seeing 8:something at each mile on my watch.

  12. Thanks! Our weather guy says this week is the peak of summer for Houston, so the temps (hopefully) should go down from here.
