Weekly Workout

hawk fifty mile training | w6


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 : )

Weekly Workouts

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!

  1. 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! 🙂


  2. 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
