This week was a good week of running! A good mix of weather conditions makes for a complicated schedule to run through…but I am always up for a challenge! I am still trying to get my scheduled runs in the morning…but an afternoon run is always welcome!!
Monday- An easy lunch run 🙂
Tuesday- I set out in the morning to do my scheduled interval run…but then I started my watch without actually setting my workout – whoops! I did push the pace from time to time, but it wasn’t a true interval run. Oh well…
In the afternoon, the trails were calling my name! I haven’t gone down on the lower trail for a bit…so this is where I set out to go! An easy out and back 🙂
Some mornings, the weather is just TOO nice to go to the gym… • So I headed out into the dark, dark to get my legs moving!! Not my usual route these days, but an oldie-goodie ❤❤ A lot has changed, yet it is all the same… • Thank you Mother Nature for another beautiful morning!! . . . . . #garminrocks #FitFluential #sweatpink #iamempowered #oisellevolée #runhappy #werunsocial #nuunhydration #nuunyear17 #2017in2017 #runtheyear2017 #RTY2017 #ffcheckin #beatyesterday #gotoshoe #thankyourunning #brooksrunning #run #runner #irun #womensrunning #runitfast #BibRavePro #BibChat #RunSquad2017 #zensah #irun4aidennicole

Wednesday- With the chill coming back, I didn’t really feel like getting outside – also, the treadmill keeps me at a low, easy pace… The last mile was a walk with a 10 incline! WHOA!! After this, the 4-5 felt flat and the 1-2 felt like I was walking downhill… Well, I think I need to do that more often!
Thursday- What is this cold weather that is sticking around?! I am not enjoying it… Oh well, a lazy morning of sleeping in kept me from battling the chill first thing – but the idea of an early lunch run was the plan 🙂 Well, plans don’t always go as planned. I didn’t get in my run and needed to get in my mile before picking up little man at daycare… Get it in while you can I guess!
Friday- Due to being out of the office today, I needed to be sure that I got my run in BEFORE work. No runch today!
no excuses • believe – endure – achieve • An easy run, listening to podcasts, watching/listening to Netflix, people watching, just an easy run…all I need to start the day off with a little me time 😀 • Bonus : I received my @beachbodyperformance package last night! #energize and #hydrate this morning – while the color is a little BOLD, the taste is great! #bibchat #bibravepro #bbperformance
Saturday- A beautiful sunrise to match my run this morning! 6 easy – 3 harder – 3 easy
Starting the day chasing the sun 🌞 . . . . . #garminrocks #FitFluential #sweatpink #iamempowered #oisellevolée #runhappy #werunsocial #nuunhydration #nuunyear17 #2017in2017 #runtheyear2017 #RTY2017 #ffcheckin #beatyesterday #gotoshoe #thankyourunning #brooksrunning #run #runner #irun #womensrunning #runitfast #BibRavePro #BibChat #RunSquad2017 #zensah #irun4aidennicole
Sunday- Since my running buddy missed her Saturday morning run, I went out with her Sunday morning before church! She finally signed up for her first half marathon – the local Bill Snyder Highway Half. She does not have a specific training plan, but with 25-30 miles a week, she is in a good place with time on her legs! We went out thinking we would run at least 8, and made it home with over 10 🙂
I like running. Running is my favorite. • I am pleasantly surprised that I didn't go crazy with a metronome ticking in my @myaftershokz for over 10 miles… I guess my surroundings were interesting enough that the ticking was just background noise. • On the plus side, my metronome was set to 172 – and my cadence ranged from 168-175, mostly in the upper 160s. Any improvement from the 165 range is great for me!! Whoop!!
Weekly Miles : 50 miles
472 / 2,017 miles in 2017
Next Week’s Projected Workouts
This coming week has a half marathon built into the training plan…which I do not have planned for another couple weeks! Oh well… This week is going to be back on the cooler side, but I will probably still be able to get out a few days!
In other more recent news – I signed up for yet another fall race!! I will be running the Rock N Roll Marathon Series race in St. Louis on October 15th. I ran this race last year as well and I am excited to go back! Will you be running with me?? If you are thinking about it, you can use the promo code “BIBRAVE15” for $15 off your registration!
Let me know if I’ll see you there!!
