GGR Weekly Rundown!

I hope your week is off to a fantastic start! Mine started with a much needed rest day, which is always welcomed. :)

Because I had a weird head cold at the beginning of last week, I waited to attempt a run until Wednesday!!! I was mentally battling with myself because I knew I needed to rest up but my mind was thinking about the running I was missing. :S Runners are crazy.

Monday: REST

Tuesday: REST AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wednesday: Finally, I headed out for an easy 10k along the trail. Crazy hot, crazy humid, but crazy good to get out there. :D

Thursday: Well, at the discretion of my PT, I cautiously tried out a few faster miles (low 7s) during this run. It was supposed to be a tempo run with a 4 mile warm up and 4 miles at tempo pace, followed by a 2 mile warm down. I basically adapted it and ran by feel so that I did not further annoy my hamstring. It was okay, hot but okay. This week was about Stamina anyway, so I wasn't too stressed about getting in a crazy workout at the risk of injury.

Friday: Yep, squeezing in a missed run day on my normal rest day. Don't do as I do, lol. I was feeling good and I am on vacation so I headed out for a little 10k jaunt along the trail.

Saturday: It was drizzly and rainy out but I wasn't complaining. The humidity however is something I just can't get used to. It has GOT to go. Normally on Saturdays I do strides at the end of my run but I skipped them today and just ran steady for 7.5 miles.

I was so pumped to wear my tiux Seawall compression socks! Then I was very sad that they got so muddy. :( Don't forget, you can use my discount code and get 15% off your very own pair!!! Click HERE for yours!!!

Saturday night was  Girl's Night at Marg's and I am still dreaming about all of the delicious food!!!

Stacey made lettuce wraps as shown below! mmm

Sam brought along a fantastic cake to celebrate Stacey's yummy! I don't have a photo of Marg's Potato Salad, but it is da bomb dot com!

Sunday: Late, slow and steady, long and solo 20 miles. There, run summarized LOL! I literally left my house at 11:45 a.m.! Girl's night made me exhausted!

But I was all smiles when it was done!

Weekly total miles: 50 (80.6km).

And of course, Lola thinks she should post this pic on Mommy's <3

Thanks so much for stopping by the GGR blog space! Have a wonderful evening!!!!
Ever get a summer head cold? 
What's the latest you've ever left for a long run? 

Happy Running,
Heather :)


  1. You still got 50 miles in :) That is awesome!
    I had a head cold for the past few weeks, one day I would think it was getting better and the next day I would be dripping like a faucet again...ugh! I had to rest too, but I didn't get near 50 miles lol
    Kudos to you for heading out at almost noon, that is a tough time of day to run.
