This week started on track – but then a couple kid-less days and a busy Saturday made me want to adjust my days this week… I know I need an additional day off between Monday and Sunday but it is hard to WANT not to run.
Lower miles help keep my mind and body busy : )
Monday- I planned on going for a walk with little man, but the heat was relentless… The hubs came home and we just hung out. Once I put little man to bed, I realized that I still needed my #streakingwiththeCOOLkids mile…I thought about taking the pup out with me, but it was just too hot still (plus the ground was still HOT).
Tuesday- A humid, steamy warm start to the day – I headed out on the back roads, which they are repaving soon…so I will need to stay away from them for a while. Since the road is blacktop, it is going to be HOT and stinky for a while…
Wednesday- I could have NOT run sooooo easily this morning… My running buddy text me early that she didn’t want to get out in the heat, me neither!
I decided that if it was too hot this morning, that I should head to the gym… But I really didn’t want to go to the gym! So I headed outside…into the warm, humid elements. I mean, come on!! 80 degrees before the sun comes up?! Yeah…it was warm.
Thursday- I packed my hydration pack and headed out on the trail. I planned on getting in my 18 mile long run for the week this morning, but a pre-scheduled coffee date and me not getting out of the house when I should have stopped me at 10 miles. I was WAY over packed for 10 miles, but it will help down the road!
At the coffee date, I mentioned that I needed to check the miles between out houses (or at least where I stay when I am in town) and her house in Spring Hill. “I should build one of my long runs to just run to your house and you can bring me back!” Well…with a couple twists and turns, I figured up 18 miles to her place – and this week’s long run is 18 miles!! So now I have my plan for tomorrow!
Friday- We are away from our routine, and since the weekend is going to be filled with traveling and family, I decided to get in my long run early this week!
I ran from my in-laws house to my parents house (mile 7) and then to my best friends house in Spring Hill – 18 miles total! I am sure glad I also brought a change of clothes…I was a mess!!
Saturday- After a busy day at the family reunion, little man and I went out for a mile before bed : ) He loves these rides!
Sunday- Happy Father’s Day!
I slept in from all the traveling we did on Saturday, but little man was up nice and early! So it was nice to turn on the TV for a little bit and catch a couple more zzzs.
The hubs ran off to work for a couple hours, no fun,…so little man and I ventured out to get my 6 miles in for today. We ran to the store, 3 miles away, and then back! We didn’t need much, nothing perishable…so it worked out well!

I think hot and humid was the theme everywhere last week! Good job at least getting out there!
It is summer now…the heat and humidity is going to be an EVERY day thing 😦
You got a lot of miles in this week! Great job! The heat and humidity is kicking my butt! It’s crazy how hot it already is at 7:00 in the morning! I’m impressed that you got so many mile done in the heat. Have a great week of running this week! 🙂
Thanks! I am hoping that my body is used to the heat//humidity soon!
My training came to a crashing halt a week ago when my knee had a sudden bursitis flare…a few days out from my marathon! My last week of taper was extreme…like NO running until race day LOL
Oh no! My knees have been sore lately…and then it takes a couple miles to get the soreness worked out…
The weather…yuck! I appreciate runs where I can run errands 🙂
Yass! I don’t often get to RUN errands…but Sunday was a nice day! Ended up in the low 80s…beautiful!
You’ve made great progress on your goals this year!
Oh yes! I didn’t check in a week or so and I hit 1100 last week 🙂
Wow, great job!!! You’re really racking up the miles!
It’s been fun!
