Mileage Monday

I ran 60 miles this week!

Monday– We had a big meeting that morning for Jake which I was a bit nervous about so I didn’t sleep much Sunday night. I woke up at 5:45am and ran 10 miles which felt fine, and the meeting went really well, so all in all it was a decent day! I slept well that night!

Tuesday– I was supposed to run 10 miles with Lora but when I set my alarm for 6 and got all ready to go, Callum woke up and wouldn’t go back to sleep. So I had to bring him along for a 6 miler with the stroller instead. KIDS. I tell ya.

Wednesday– This summer has been magical in the running with Lora department. This time I woke up at 5:40, got ready as fast as I could and left the house right away. I had coffee at Starbucks and then met Lora at 7. We ran 8 miles together. I got home at 8:30 and everyone was still fast asleep. Then I ran 3 miles on the treadmill in the garage later on because I needed to and I did those 3 miles at 7 min/mile pace.

Thursday– Squeezed in an 8 miler in the early morning before we left for Whidbey Island for the day!

Friday– I ran 15 miles before anyone got up!

Saturday– I got to meet Lora again for a run at 7am! We were only supposed to do 5 miles but we got so into our conversation that we ended up doing 6 miles.

Sunday– It’s all I could do today to make sure I didn’t go over 60 miles for the week! I pushed Callum in the stroller for 4 miles and stopped to talk to the cows. <3

    It looks like you had a great week of running! I am glad the meetings on monday went well and you were able to sleep and get some rest. I had the same problem with my Saturday run… was running with a friend and misestimated the distance so we ran an extra mile!

    Hope you have a good week!

      Amy, I don’t think we have ever ran past the turnaround point! Which means we needed that conversation. <3 So thankful for friends like that.

    I love running with friends. It makes it so much more fun! Good job on sticking to your guns with the 60 mile cap. Did you get some good tips on what to do in the pm when you are getting anxious and want to run?

      Reading really, REALLY helps me. I also do square breathing (4 seconds in, 4 seconds out).

    You’re doing so well at staying within your mileage range! I’m glad that the meeting went well—that must be a huge weight off your shoulders. That’s awesome how many runs you’ve been able to do with Lora!
