Running strong and plant powered

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 missing a run on my training schedule.  It does take the pressure off a bit, knowing that a skipped run isn’t the end of the world.

Early in the week there was a little break from the oppressive heat as we got pop up showers in the afternoon.  It didn’t bring the humidity down any, but it did lower the temperature by at least 10 degrees.

Here is how my week shook out:

Sunday – Rest / Camping

Monday – 4 miles (average pace 10:08) with Gooses Acre Running Club.

Tuesday – 7 miles slow (average pace 10:52). Made up my missed long run from Sunday.


was treated to this beautiful sunset after my run

Wednesday – Rest.

Thursday – Easy 5 miles (average pace 10:58).


Friday – Rest.

Saturday – 4 miles easy (average pace 10:42)

Total miles = 20

    Skipped runs are totally part of the game. You just have to let them go and focus on the next run. Looks like you did that this week!

      Yup… sometimes it is hard to do, I want to check that box off!

    Sounds like a pretty great week. Skipped runs definitely aren’t the end of the world, especially in this heat!

    I love the Spandits pattern you have on! I have to say I’m super impressed you can run in the evenings. NO can do. I’m physically and mentally done after work. That is a gorgeous sunset you were treated to, but I’ll have to stick to the sunrises. Thanks for linking, Vicki.
