Workouts – Last Week Today – May 7

Workouts Last Week TodayWelcome to my weekly workout recap, today I’m recapping my workouts from last week today.

This week I felt was a good week.  I was able to get in 4 runs this week (3 with the dogs), and I continued doing some planking and did some squats and wall sits.  We had some really nice weather (very low humidity and temps in the low 80s), which made running feel effortless.

I got word on Wednesday that I’m going to run the Chicago Marathon!  I’ll soon be trading in upkeep mileage for marathon training!  Looking forward to round #2.

Workouts Last Week Today:

Sunday – 12 miles… slow.

Monday – Rest. 1:00 plank, 30 squats, 0:45 wall sit

Tuesday – 4 miles easy with Anam. 1:00 plank.

Wednesday –  Rest. 1:00 plank, 30 squats, 0:45 wall sit.

Thursday – 5 miles easy with Sorcha + 5 hill repeats = total mileage 6 miles.

Friday – Rest.


Saturday – 5 miles easy with Anam.


Total Miles = 27

I’m linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippi Piddlin’ for the Weekly Wrap.

    I couldn’t help but chuckle a little when I read that temps in the 80s made running feel effortless!!! Where do you live??? I’m in Mississippi and temps in the low 70s can be brutally hot and hard! By the way, your pups are beautiful! Congrats on Chicago!

      I live in Houston… we had what felt like zero humidity, so it really did feel effortless even in the low 80s.

    Congratulations on getting to run the Chicago Marsthon. You will have an amazing experience. That low humidity makes such a difference here in the south. It’s always a treat to run in it. Thanks for linking, Vicki!

      I love running with them! I am going to be sad when it gets too hot for them to go.

    I’ve got to get on board with the wall sits! How are you just now finding out about Chicago? I was curious I have friends who entered the lottery and they have known that they got in.

      My work is one of the sponsors for Chicago and they just opened up entries for employees, I think the sponsors get so many comped entries.
