Workouts – Last Week Today – July 31

Had a great week of running this week. I’m in my 3rd week training for the Houston Half.  My mileage is increasing a little bit, and I’ve had one “speed” work session. We’ve been getting afternoon showers in Houston this week, which brought down the temps…. mid 80’s sure felt better than mid 90’s!  I was even able to get a…

Workouts – Last Week Today – July 24

Had a great week of running this week. I’m in my 2nd week training for the Houston Half. All my runs are at an “easy” effort at this point in the training plan, and I’m taking them easy… incorporating walking water breaks as I need. I wanted to thank everyone for their support in last week’s post where I felt bad for…

Workouts – Last Week Today – July 17

Started training for the Houston Half this week! I’m a little mad at myself that I already missed a scheduled run… but not beating myself up too bad about it. I ended up going camping with the hubs instead and was able to spend a great amout of time in the outdoors. Before we know it summer will be over and we will…

Workouts – Last Week Today – July 10

Kept up my running routine, and feeling great.  I can’t believe training for the Houston Half starts next week! This summer is flying by! I remembered to wear my Jawbone Up24 a few times this week. I have determined that I can easily get in 10k steps if I walk both dogs at night. The girls are loving the extra attention that…

Workouts – Last Week Today – July 3

Feeling good about being back in my running routine.  My mileage is low, and I’m slowly increasing it. I don’t start my training cycle for my next half marathon until the the middle of this month.  I have a few shorter distance races on the horizon, and I will start incorporating a little speed work here and there, but frankly… I’m…

Workouts – Last Week Today – June 26

This week I got back in my routine of running (for the most part).  My mileage is low, and I’m ok with that. The heat is in full swing in Houston and I’m trying to get myself acclimated to it again. I am continuing to wear my Jawbone Up24 in the hopes that it motivates me to get 10k steps…

Workouts – Last Week Today – June 19

This week we wrapped up our Colorado vacation and I got a few runs in once we got back. While we had a blast in Colorado, I was happy to be home… I missed my fur kids, and I missed my routine. Here is how this week shook out: Sunday – Went hiking and site seeing… found a short trail…

Workouts – Last Week Today – June 12

This week’s mileage was dismal. I feel like I am in a slump… and I don’t really like it! I dug out my Jawbone and got it charged up so at least I could make sure that I was getting in at least 10k steps. Sunday – Last day at deer camp with the hubs. We did a little hiking….

Workouts – Last Week Today – Jun 5

This week I didn’t do much running at all. My only run was Sunday for my long run. I would really like to go for a run! I helped close out an office at work on Tuesday-Thursday during the week and spend a lot of time packing and running around.  I was so exhausted after those days! I am totally not…

Workouts – Last Week Today – May 29

All my spring races are done… I don’t have anything on the race schedule confirmed until October 30 (boo!).  There are a few 5k races in Houston during the summer and I am running in the Southern Star Brewing Company 5k (because, free craft beer). I had been struggling to remember to get my planks in, but seeing all the strong ladies in…
