Weekly Recap: December 5th-11th, 2016


  • Hill Repeats
  • 30 minutes of upper body blogilates videos 

Started out the week with a 1 mile warm up, followed by 3 hill repeats, then about 1.2 miles of more easy running. The original plan was for my repeats to be a little longer, but my legs felt like lead and jello throughout the duration of my run, so I only ended up running up about 1/4 of the hill and I walked down to recover instead of jogging. Whew! I’m just glad I got it done! I also met my kitty friend near the end of my run. That was nice. πŸ™‚


  • Easy 1 mile

Crazy gusts of wind made this easy run feel kinda hard, but sometimes running into the wind is lots of fun! 


The weather was perfect on Wednesday! Cold and cloudy. 😊 I was hoping to get snowed on, but that didn’t happen. I ended up walking the dogs in the snow though. That was fun.❄️⛄️


  • 1 mile 

Just one mile on Thursday because my shin was feeling a little sore. 


  • 1 mile 

Luke and I did a lot of running around on Friday. We went grocery shopping, Christmas shopping, took the dogs to the park, and a did a few other odds and ends. Managed to squeeze in a mile though. Also, my parents sent me a birthday card (about a month late, but whatever πŸ˜‰ ) and my dad wrote me a lovely message haha. 


  • 1 mile 

Just another mile to keep the streak alive. We did a lot more running around today, then had a bunch of pizza for dinner. I ran after all the pizza. Not a good idea…this was the most uncomfortable run I’ve done in a while. Oh the bright side, all that discomfort was my stomach, my shin is feeling 100% better. πŸ˜„


  • 5.96 miles 
  • 10 minutes of stretching/foam rolling 

I wanted to get in 8-10 miles today, but the weather had other plans for me lol. I didn’t know it was supposed to rain, so I was only dressed for the cold, not the wet. I seriously considered getting 8 in, but I was starting to get super wet, and I figured a nice hot shower and lunch was a better idea than finishing my run and getting hypothermia. Although I really wish I would have checked my watch before I got all the way home, or I would have run that last .04 mile lol. Oh well, I basically made it 6 miles. πŸ˜„

Total Weekly Mileage: 15.97

Not bad! I think my legs are finally starting to adjust to the whole streaking thing. Tomorrow will be the half way mark for the Runner’s World winter running streak, and I’m super stoked that I’ve made it this far! It’s looking like I’m going to redeem myself from having to quit last year!! πŸ˜„
