Weekly Wrap: August Week 2, 2016

Sunday  8.3 mile easy run after a pretty big 7 hour hike the day before.  and a 15 minute strength workout in the afternoon.

Monday  7.1 miles.  This was sort of like a tempo run with a pause.  I ran 4 miles with the first easy and the rest at a 7:38 pace, then went home (my father in law was here and when I went running everyone was sleeping but I didn't want to miss when he left so I cut my run short) after 45 minutes I went out and ran another 3.1 to complete my run.  It felt really good! My legs felt speedy and they haven't felt that good in a while!

Then after finsihing school shopping I came home and did 40 minutes of yoga.

Tuesday  NOthing

Wednesday: 13.1 mile run

Thursday: 12 minute strength workout before work

Friday 18 minute strength workout before work

Saturday: Hill repeats  and some easy running for a total of 6.4 miles

run 34.9 miles in four runs
yoga 1
strength workouts: 3


Randoms... my hair..is soo long! I am planning on a trim as soon as the kids go back to school


Sometimes Cola gets bored when I do yoga and he tries to be helpful

  1. You are really fast! That seven mile run has me green with envy! I'm hoping once it cools off that some of my speed--not that I'm even in your league--will return. Without the PF...

  3. Your mileage is kicking butt :) That is great your legs are feeling fresh - a few more weeks! I am excited for you.
    Cola lol
    I love your hair :) It looks really pretty long and of course it is the perfect color. I miss my red, but the gray/white has taken over for me lol

  4. I love your hair! I got a couple inches hacked off last month and it felt so amazing. And yes, we go white, not gray. I'm not going gracefully! Cola is a nut! What a great running partner, but not picture partner!

  6. Sounds like another very solid week.

    Something random from my week. Hmmmm. Living in my joggers? LOL! Actually, I have to wrap myself in a shawl when I lay on the couch, because even though it's been hot and humid, the AC vents blow right on the couch!

  7. I think Cola is trying to tell you something -- he needs his own Instragram account. HA. Your training has been great. I know you must be getting really excited about the race. I think your hair looks fantastic long. My random -- my youngest started school last Wednesday. Yes, already! Thanks for linking, Christy!

  8. I love the background scenery of your pics...seems like a beautifully peaceful place to live! Speaking of hair...my random for the week - got my hair done on Monday and went a shade lighter. Thinking of going a little more blonde to cover the gray! :)

  10. When you inhale, you are taking the strength from God. When you exhale, it represents the service you are giving to the world

  11. I love the color of your hair it is very similar to mine only mine appears darker when curly. If I straightened it, it would look much lighter.
    Random: speaking of hair, I never use shampoo! Only conditioner. When I use shampoo it drys my hair out and looks 10x more frizzy!
