Weekly Roundup 6.1-6.7

What a fun week for running!  I was NOT in the mood to run on Monday and on Tuesday I had to work late (holler for overtime this week!) so I had to miss Run Club but Wednesday was National Running Day and jump started the rest of my week!

I really wanted to… correction: I HAD to get out the door on Wednesday for a run but I didn’t know when I’d be able to.  The only logistical solution was to take G for a mile trot on my lunch break!  I don’t think she was too happy to break our normal lunch break routine but we had to do it!  CCR polo and all!  :)

Also National Running Day was the start of Open Registration for the Houston Marathon and Half Marathon.  I was SOOOOO happy when my dad emailed me saying he registered for the half and then a few minutes later, my cousin Michele announced on Instagram and tweeted out that she also registered—it will be her first half marathon!  I’M SO EXCITED!

In case you missed it, I recently wrote a blog post for beginners…

Thursday morning I tested my speed for the first time this year with 4x half mile repeats during my 5 mile run.  They went surprisingly well on a humid morning.  The last repeat was a bit of a strugglefest but I held on and finished strong.  Man I love running fast!  I missed my long run on Saturday as I wasn’t feeling so hot.  Instead I cruised through one of my favorite loops from my parents house after work about 30 seconds faster per mile than I wanted.  Oops!  I’ll take it.
