Workouts – Last Week Today – November 20

fontover_201671013354641-1.jpgI’m in my 8th week of training for the Houston Marathon. Race day is 8 weeks away… and I’m feeling pretty good

This week was a cut back week for me.  I had a great week of running this week!  Here’s how it all shook out:

Sunday – Rest. We got back from the deer lease too late for me to head out for an evening run, so I enjoyed the evening with a few cold ones with the hubs and our neighbors.


Monday – 8 miles easy with the Goose’s Acre Running Club.


Tuesday – Rest.


Wednesday –  5 miles + stride outs with Anam

Thursday – Rest.


Friday – 6 miles progressive with Anam.  We nailed the progressive (11:36/11:15/10:56/10:39/10:15/9:39).


Saturday – 5 miles easy. It was a chilly one this morning!


Total Miles = 24

I’m linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippi Piddlin’ for the Weekly Wrap; and Nicole, Annmarie, Jen, and Michelle for Wild Workout Wednesday.

    Great week of workouts and the progression run! I can’t believe how chilly it got this weekend. I had forgotten where my gloves and hat were.

      Yes, very chilly… I had to delay my morning runs to allow it to warm up!

    Great job with your runs! I struggle with progressive runs because sometimes I speed up a little bit too much and have nowhere to go, lol.

      I do the same thing!

    I’m so looking forward to a scheduled cutback in mileage next week. That is a great progressive run! Hands down, that is my favorite type of training run since you have plenty of time to work down to that faster pace. And, you get to end of such a high note. That picture from Saturday’s run is so pretty! Thanks for linking, Vicki!

      The progressive runs are becoming my favorite too!
