I love this quote for a Monday:

crazyrunninggirl.monday-quote

 

This weekend was so fun and random, and totally started with maybe one of the craziest ideas I’ve had. I decided that since I was running the Longhorn Run 10k on Saturday (recap tomorrow!) and I needed to get a 20 miler in, I’d just combine the two. 

I ran 11 miles, did the Longhorn Run 10k and then finished up with about three miles to get back to my car. The first 11 miles were really good and I felt strong, but after that 30 minute break waiting for the race to start, my legs hated me a little bit.

The last three miles were steady and slow, so not terrible. The entire time I was thinking that I was truly living up to the name of this blog… 😉

Also this weekend, I finally got to do something that’s been on my list for a long time: Blue Owl Brewing

Blue Owl Brewery

 

I’m not sure about anywhere else, but sours are the new thing here in Austin… I don’t know the best way to describe a sour beer other than it doesn’t really taste like beer and it makes the back of your cheeks hurt. But it’s SO GOOD. 

We ended up doing a brewery tour and sticking around for a few hours afterwards to finish our samples. Spirit Animal still tops my list.

So, last week’s workouts! I am pretty happy with how the week turned out:

Sunday:

crazyrunninggirl.post-otf

OTF! I’m loving doing these on Sundays because it can sometimes make me feel super rushed during the week. 

 

Monday:

crazyrunninggirl.post-4miles

Totally overslept on Monday, awesome, but had time to do my run at night. I did a solid 4 miles with some stride outs (10). I picked these up from Advanced Marathoning — I call them slow sprints because your not supposed to go at your top speed, but rather just stretch your legs out a bit. 

 

Tuesday:

crazyrunninggirl.track-day

I’ve designated Tuesday as track days and they are kinda becoming my favorite. They definitely are hard and suck, but there’s something about a track workout that makes you feel fast. Like how burpees make you feel like superman. 

This week, I did an 800m warm up followed by 8x400m with 200m in between and 800m cool down. After last week’s Yassos, this felt so short. 

 

Wednesday:

Easy three in the AM — which was needed after track day. 

 

Thursday: 

Rest day

 

Friday:

5 miles! 

 

Saturday:

crazyrunninggirl.garmin-20miles

20 miles 🙂

 

Total mileage for the week: 36 miles (not including OTF, which generally has 2.5-3 miles per class)

 

I feel like my 20 miler was super solid, and it made me really excited for where I’m at in training. We’re under 10 weeks to go and I feel like I’m in a pretty solid spot. 

Also, Brooks Running sent me a special package last week:

Life the Way You Run | Medal Rack

 

LOVE it!! I love medal racks because they are just a great spot for inspiration. Those Boston Marathon medals… staring me in the face every single day is a good reminder of how much I want to get back there. Comeeee on 2017. 🙂

 

What was your favorite part of your weekend? Anyone race? 

Who loves sour beers? 

Do you have a medal rack?
