Workouts - Last Week Today - June 4

Workouts Last Week TodayWelcome to my weekly workout recap, today I'm recapping my workouts from last week today.

This week I managed to get in 4 runs this week, including two with Anam. The heat and humidity managed to keep my pace very slow.  On Thursday I started my plank-a-day x2.

Workouts Last Week Today:

Sunday - Pajama day!!!

Monday - Set out to do 10 easy miles... ended with 12.

During my last mile I got a running partner, he followed me the mile from one end of our neighborhood to our house.  The hubs suggested I run him back to where I picked him up and find his people. Long story short, he followed me back home and it appeared we were stuck trying to find his home (he was really well behaved and obviously taken care of).  The next day (after I left for work, but before the hubs could get him to the vet), he got loose from our house and found another person that was walking (she couldn't shake him either). She managed to get him to a vet to check for a chip and found his people.


Tuesday - 4.5 miles with Anam.

Wednesday - 3.5 miles with Anam.

Thursday - 1:00 am plank, 1:00 pm plank.


Friday - 1:00 am plank, 1:00 pm plank.


Saturday - 4 miles.  I waffled back and forth whether to run... but I finally talked myself into it and made it out the door at 10... brutally hot, but I'm considering it heat training. 1:00 am plank, 1:00 pm plank.

Total Miles = 24

I'm linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippi Piddlin’ for the Weekly Wrap.



  1. How nice you were able to reconnect the dog with his owner! I've had dogs follow me too, and it's nice to make sure they find their way home. Altho it would be better if the owners would keep the dogs leashed.

    I had a little dog follow me (or chase me) on a run once. He was just a little yappy thing that kept running between my feet. I thought for sure he was going to bite my ankles..haha. Glad your friends found his owners!

  3. That was really sweet of you to connect the dog with his owner. Looks like you had a solid week of training!

  4. Awwe, what a cute dog! I am glad that he was reunited with his owners - I know they must have been thrilled.

    Great job on your runs his week!

  5. great news that the dog reunited with its owners- wandering dogs make me a little nervous! Great job with those hot miles! Now no matter what time I start they are hot miles! Thanks for linking up!

  6. He was such a little sweetie. It is so frustrating to come across unleashed or unfenced dogs!

  7. Oh no... sometimes the little ones are the ones that bite!

  8. Thanks... he was such a sweet little guy, I knew his owners had to be franticly missing him.

  9. Thanks! I'm happy he was reunited too... he was so well behaved - he had to be missed badly.

  10. Yes... the wandering dogs frustrate me! Yup... it is hot now no matter what time... the big decision is run in am when humidity is higher, or at night when lower, but air temp higher, decisions... decisions :-)

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.
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…
