Weekly Chase

Once again, our weekend was too short.

I could use at least another day off.

This last week in fitness looked like this:

Monday – Rest - I really did this!
Tuesday – Barre Fusion at Lifetime and 3.1 miles after that - check!
Wednesday – 6 miles easy - Barre AND 6 miles
Thursday – 3 miles at my wishful pace + light strength - I did Barre instead
Friday – Rest
Saturday – Rest
Sunday – Rock and Roll Dallas Half Marathon Goal Time: 2:00-2:20 - smack dab in the middle 2:10 (more on that later this week)

Total miles:  22.3

My friend Alicia *KILLED* her 50 miler on Saturday! 

Read about her amazing journey here.  This girl is in her word "amazeballs"!

I can't even fathom the thought of doing basically another marathon after just running a marathon (which is pretty much what this is), except that a) this was a difficult trail run and b) the "trail" was actually a lot of sand per Alicia's report.  I didn't get a chance to go out to the course, but saw lots of smiles & saw lots of updates from my friends that were out there with her. 

Our entire group is SO proud of her!!

What's up for this week?

Monday - Barre 
Tuesday - Barre Fusion & 3 miles
Wednesday - 4 miles and strength train
Thursday - rest
Friday - Barre
Saturday - group run with MRTT (6ish?) and strength
Sunday - Barre (I am still really loving this Barre thing!)

Total milage: 13 miles

I can't remember the last time I ran so little in one week.  I'll let you all in on my plans later...(i'll see if it works first!)

Who else raced this weekend?  How did it go?


  1. Great Job!! Congratulations on completing the Half! Great time. I'm going to have to look into a Barre class - you make it sound interesting.

    1. should definitely check it out. I've been to 6 classes over the last 2 weeks and I am already noticing changes in my core strength. The time passes so fast because it is so fast paced and fun!
