Weekly Wrap – Aug. 31 to Sept. 6

I hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend! I can’t wait for tonights game. Today, I am linking up again for weekly wrap, hosted by HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddlin’.

Monday – Rest

Tuesday – Cross train. Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred level two workout.

Wednesday – 3 mile run. I headed over to the state park trail after work and did four hill repeats with a 1 mile warm up and roughly 1 mile cool down.

Thursday – Rest

Friday – 7 mile run. I chose to do my long run on Friday morning, since I am off work on Fridays. I did this run over on the Huckleberry Trail so that my run would be on rolling hills.

The new part of the trail has a few hills that are pretty big! Pictures never capture it, but trust me the hill pictured below is a big one.

Saturday – 3 mile run. Just an easy run at a nearby park, breaking in a new pair of shoes that I bought on Friday (more on that sometime in the near future…).

Loving Field Pulaski

Sunday – 6 mile run. Debbie and her husband, Bill, were driving through my neck of the woods and decided to stop in so we could meet up for a run. Debbie and I got to run together, and I got to show them ‘my’ trail. It’s neat getting to share a place you run all of the time with others!

Debbie had her trusty, and very cool, GoPro with her, so we got some action shots toward the end of our run. Thanks for the picture, Deb!

Total Miles: 19 miles. This weekend I started cutting my mileage back in preparation for the Hokie Half Marathon. Sometimes I think we feel worse when we start cutting our mileage back, but it’sĀ  usually just our body recovering and getting ready for race day. Fingers crossed the last of this summer humidity moves out and the fall weather gets here soon!

Do you have a long weekend for Labor Day? What did you do this weekend?
Is it starting to look/feel like fall where you live?

  1. LOL. Hills never look big in pictures! I wish I had some nice trails like that around here. I’ve been playing with my GoPro, but mostly for video. It’s nice you were able to run with Deb. Enjoy your taper week. It feels funny not to run your normal schedule, but your body will definitely appreciate it. Good luck in the Hokie Half marathon. I hope the ballgame goes your way tonight and thanks for linking up with us today!

  2. Ha! I’m in Miami so it is not starting to feel like fall … we don’t really have fall, sadly.

    I attempted an open water swim in the ocean but it was filled with moon jellies and so I bailed. Bummer but it is what it is.

    1. It gets humid here, but only for a couple of months. I don’t know how y’all deal with the humidity you get down there! Kudos to you. I like to stick to the pool when I swim, so as not to meet any critters. šŸ™‚

    1. Well… maybe we could have if we hadn’t lost our starting QB. Or maybe they would have still worn us down and crushed us in the end. They won, but they don’t know for sure they would have otherwise. We had a few good plays against them that you Penn Staters hopefully enjoyed šŸ˜‰

  3. I feel like the last kid on the block to get a toy. I totally want a go pro. We are getting one (hopefully last) blast of heat and humidity. The trees are getting brown because it has been extremely dry this summer, but no pretty colors as of yet. Have a great week!
