Weekly Recap 5/6 – 5/12

Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! It was a pretty good week here in Houston. My Saturday long runs are getting into the higher mileage again; the countdown is on to my next half marathon – 4 weeks!

My workouts this week:

Monday: Jillian Michaels 6-Week Six-Pack (35 minutes)

Tuesday: Speed work intervals – 3 x (1200 meters race pace + 400 meters walk)

1200 meters = 0.75 mile (Pace: 8:45 min/mile)
400 meters = 0.25 mile (Pace: Comfortable walk)

Wednesday: Walked around for a few hours at OTC (oilfield conference)

Thursday: 3.1 mile maintenance run (Pace: 10:30 min/mile)

Friday: Rest Day

Saturday: 9.25 miles in 1:37:12 – Saturday’s run was fantastic! It was hot and humid, but my mentality was so positive I doubt anything could have stood in my way. If I had ended up hitting ‘the wall,’ I probably would have just hurdled right over it! I LOVE when that happens!

Mile 1: 10:37
Mile 2: 10:38
Mile 3: 10:36
Mile 4: 10:46
Mile 5: 10:44
Mile 6: 10:38
Mile 7: 10:32
Mile 8: 10:14
Mile 9: 10:07
Mile .25: 2:21

Sunday: Spending as much time as possible outside on this beautiful day!

Sunday Motivation!

QOTD: How was your training this week? Do you have any races coming up?


  1. What's your next race? I'm considering a 10k or half in July, but I'm still on the fence about it.

    1. Next race is the Wounded Warrior Half Marathon in Dallas on June 9th, so excited! :)

      Any races over in your area that are jumping out at you? Do you have a 10K time to submit for Dumbo?
