Last BIG week of this training cycle!! While it didn’t go totally as scheduled or planned, I made the most of it! Only two more weekends before the big race…one of which will be on vacation…oh boy!
Tuesday- 4 miles + 1 mile with Pai
I needed the early morning text from Angie asking if I was running…yep! We met up for 4 miles to start the day!
After our run, I came home and picked up the sleeping pup for a mile around the block! With the high, high humidity and warm air, I couldn’t keep her out much longer than that… She enjoyed hopping in the pool when we got home : )
Goofy girl! • After going for a 4 mile run with Angie, Miss Paisley and I went out for another mile ❤ She did well considering I didn't want to mess with her harness and just latched and went! • @stuntpuppy #stuntpuppy #drycollar @myaftershokz #shokzsquad @buff_usa #buffusa #buffheadwear #bibchat • • • #garminrocks #FitFluential #sweatpink #iamempowered #oisellevolée #flystyle #runhappy #werunsocial #nuunhydration #nuunyear17 #2017in2017 #runtheyear2017 #RTY2017 #ffcheckin #beatyesterday #womensrunning #runitfast #BibRavePro #RunSquad2017 #zensah #zensaharoundtheworld #irun4aidennicole
Have you checked out my review of the BUFF® Pack Run Cap from last Friday? This lightweight little cap is the perfect addition to everyone’s running gear! You will certainly be seeing me wear it often : )

Late riser. Incoming weather. All excuses.
I should have got out of bed with my first alarm…heck, I was already dressed to run since I have had a hard time getting the motivation to get out early lately! Oh well, I ran 4 good miles from tomorrow’s run and plan to make up the other 4 on Friday…
1/3 run ✔ • Between the weather and the time, I was only able to get out for 1/3 of today's scheduled run…or 1/2 of tomorrow's…we'll see how the rest of today goes, but I plan to take it as 1/2 of tomorrow's workout, Run today's workout tomorrow, and 4 on Friday… #allthemiles @myaftershokz #shokzsquad #bibchat #gotailwind

With yesterday’s failed attempt at my mid-week long run, I set out to get it done today! While I didn’t get out QUITE as early as I wanted, I was able to get in 5+ miles before meeting up with my pal Angie for anther 5 – and then finished up my last 2 closer to home. I am loving my new Oiselle Roga shirt with shorts – mostly because of the color : )
The Oiselle link is a “Give $20, Get $20” promotion – as a new customer, you can get $20 off your order. In exchange, for my referring you to their amazing brand, Oiselle will treat me to $20 off my next purchase : ) Shop away my friends!! (I could totally use another skirt…or seven!!)
What?! There is that BUFF® Pack Run Cap again! : )
Yeah, I didn’t get out this morning…and I am not too worried about it. OFF days aren’t a bad idea these days : )
Saturday- 10 miles
After much back and forth with myself and my hubs, I decided to run my 10 miler this morning – rather than attempt my longer 26 mile training run. I met up with Tara at the Konza trails and I joined her for 10 miles : ) I am not sure how many more she ran…but she helped me keep moving at a decent clip!
Some early morning trail miles with Tara to start the weekend on the right foot (pun pun 😂) 💚 • I am loving my amazing gear – including (but not limited to) my @buff_usa Pack Run Cap (review on the blog, check it out!), @myaftershokz Trekz Titanium, and @uarunning Hortizon RTT! All perfect gear for a day on the trail! #buffusa #livemorenow #shokzsquad #uamtnrunning #bibchat • • • #garminrocks #FitFluential #sweatpink #iamempowered #oisellevolée #flystyle #runhappy #werunsocial #nuunhydration #nuunyear17 #2017in2017 #runtheyear2017 #RTY2017 #ffcheckin #beatyesterday #womensrunning #runitfast #BibRavePro #RunSquad2017 #zensah #zensaharoundtheworld #irun4aidennicole #gotailwind
Sunday- 26 miles
After a morning lightening storm and lack of extra alarms, I was able to get out for my last long-long run of this training cycle!
I wasn’t quite sure where I wanted to go, but I knew that I had plenty of miles to roam around… I headed up to the lake, over the lake, to a friends house for ice, back to the lake, to a gas station for fuel and more ice, then around the campgrounds at the lake, to the Camp Shop for more ice…around more campgrounds, and then back home!
Phew…it was a hot one, but good thing I kept ice around for quite a bit of the miles!
Not every run can be perfect…and today was all about finding the path of best opportunity. I made 3 pit stops (aid stations) – @mstahl13 house (mile 11+ for ice), gas station (mile 15ish for fuel and ice), and Camp Stop (mile 20+ for ice). Last long-long run is done!! Bring on the 3 week taper for the #Hawk50!! • @myaftershokz #shokzsquad @buff_usa #buffusa #livemorenow @uarunning #uamtnrunning #bibchat • • • #garminrocks #FitFluential #sweatpink #iamempowered #oisellevolée #flystyle #runhappy #werunsocial #nuunhydration #nuunyear17 #2017in2017 #runtheyear2017 #RTY2017 #ffcheckin #beatyesterday #womensrunning #runitfast #BibRavePro #RunSquad2017 #zensah #zensaharoundtheworld #irun4aidennicole #gotailwind
