August mileage = highest monthly mileage for me ever!

Day 3, Wednesday, September 2nd: 8 miles
So, I reeeeeally don’t like running in the dark, but I had a meeting at 9 AM and the temps are just too hot for 8 miles after work . . . I sucked it up, and ran super early in the dark. I ran my favorite 5 mile loop by our house, stopped for Gatorade at home, and then went out for the last 3 miles. I am still laughing about this autocorrect mishap, so thought I would share! 🙂

Day 4, Thursday, September 3rd: 4 miles
I never really have much to say about my Thursday runs . . . I’ll take that as a good thing. A run without craziness like my friend Layla says!

Day 6, Saturday, September 5: 17 miles
Saturdays are typically a shorter long run, sometimes at race pace . . . but with our plans to attend the OU game, I decided it would be better to just knock out those long miles! We had a crew up at Lake Hefner, and so pleased with the results!
Workout summary: ran 17.02 miles; avg 11:30/mile; 11:46 / 11:28 / 11:42 / 11:15 / 11:06 / 11:40 / 11:31 / 11:45 / 12:05 / 11:21 / 12:09 / 11:13 / 11:15 / 11:08 / 11:15 / 11:35 / 11:19.
Day 7, Sunday, September 6:
8 3 miles
Saturday was supposed to be 8 at race pace followed by 17 today. As I mentioned earlier I planned to swap the two runs. Well after yesterday’s run, walking over 4 miles as a part of game day, and being out in the heat. . . I decided to compromise. David was kind enough to drag me along for a 5k around home. It wasn’t race pace, it wasn’t my expected mileage, but I listened to my body, had great company, and we had popsicles after together! 🙂
Workout summary: ran 3.1 miles; avg 12:14/mile; 12:11 / 12:23 / 12:08 / 11:51 for .1.
