Weekly Workouts

Monday- Since today is a holiday, there is a group run organized this morning. I dedicated my morning 10+ to my dad – a Vietnam Vet.

This is the first Memorial Day in a long time that I will not be spending it in KC with family. I am excited to see them next weekend when I go home for the Hospital Hill Half Marathon.

Tuesday- Now that my running buddy is starting back into a running routine, I was happy to join her this morning for a few easy miles : )

Plus, the “cool” morning temps and sunrise made it totally worth it!

Wednesday- Well…today was a little different!

I don’t always ride my bike – but when my race is coming up this weekend and I want to get out but not run, my bike is a good choice. Since my running buddy is still recovering from her first half marathon, I text her last night to see if she wanted to go for a ride : )

Since it was a little chilly for a bike ride, I wore my light jacket and decked out in some Brilliant Reflective BLING!! I am reviewing Brilliant Reflective strips again this summer, you can check out my last review as well – and my bike is one piece of gear that I didn’t BLING up last time!

Are you digging the reflective BLING on my bike and jacket? You can totally get your own on Brilliant Reflective’s website and use the code “BRP35” for 35% off your online order! You can never be seen too well while out on the road…Check them out!!

Thursday- I didn’t get out this morning due to some storms in the area…and I thought about going to the gym, but I stayed in bed. Since the hubs didn’t sleep well, I then got little man ready for the day and took him to daycare.

I packed my bags and am ready for a lunch run!

Friday- No morning or afternoon run – but after hitting up the Hospital Hill Runners Expo, I headed out to my volunteer post for the 5K. Since I was out there super early, I headed out to get a mile before my course marshal duties!

Saturday- Hospital Hill Half Marathon!

Great race today!! The weather was a little warm, and the humidity kicked everyone's tail! • When I checked my @garmin HR monitor around mile 5, it wasn't working… *cue anxiety* At this point, I was pushing a mod/tough pace and on pace to a 2:05-2:10 (possible PR) finish…but since I am not a good judge of effort in the heat/humidity, I backed off. BIG TIME. • I took in the last half of the race with some running and walking. No race is worth risking my health… This has been my first "race" since my health issues last month, so I was happier finishing WAY slower than even my average finishing time, but that's alright. I live to run another day ❤❤ • Thank you @bibrave for giving me the opportunity to run one of my favorite KC events @hospitalhillrun in BibRave Pro orange 💥💥 #HHR2017 @adidasrunning #ultraboostx #bibchat

Since my 50M training should have started a couple weeks ago, I decided to see what my long run SHOULD have been this weekend…one of the three plans stated I needed 17 miles today…so I headed back out! While this wasn’t ultimately the plan I decided to go with for the remainder of my 50M training, it worked out well today!

Sunday- With TIRED legs, I headed out for 8 miles – and the heat/humidity really hit me hard, and I decided to go for only 1-4 mile loop rather than 2… #reallife #runnersprobs #sweatingbuckets

Weekly Miles : 42 miles

1011 / 2,016 miles in 2016

  1. Your Hospital Hill medal looks awesome! I ran a 13.1 on Saturday and had plans to tack on an additional 5 miles afterwards…but the heat dictated that I leave it at 13.1. UGH! It got real hot real fast!

  2. Congrats on that nice new shiny medal! Kudos to you for running a half and then getting the extra miles in, that is impressive! We have no more cool mornings here, it is muggy as soon as you roll out of bed! Thanks for linking up!
