Sunday trails

So according to my training plan Sunday is supposed to be a “cross train” day. Which usually means I spend the day doing absolutely nothing. Sometimes I’ll do mimosa curls or lay on the floor with intentions of doing crunches before getting sucked into Diners Drive-ins and Dives.

Not this Sunday.. I was on a mission to be productive, especially because it was so nice outside (60’s & sunny). Dixie went to one of our favorite trails at Tanglewood Park.

We did 3 easy miles @ 8:50 pace. Dixie tried to make friends with some horses and was VERY distracted, but that’s just what happens when you run with a hound dog. They can’t help it.. they love to explore.

Favorites from today’s playlist:
Ellie Goulding – Love Me Like You Do
Alicia Keys – Girl On Fire
Drake – Energy

Sunday recap:

Monday: Rest
Tuesday: 3 mi @8:10/mi
Wednesday: 4 mi @8:24/mi, strength
Thursday: 3 mi @ 8:35/mi, strength
Friday: Rest
Saturday: 10k race, 6.2 mi @8:09/mi
Sunday: 3 mi @8:50/mi

Total miles: 19.2

Hope everyone had a wonderful Sunday!! Sorry for our sweaty selfie.

  1. Good job on being productive.! I never cross train either, ha I’m bad about it.
    what a great way to finish off your week, on the trails with your doggy 🙂
    I prefer to make Sunday’s my rest day, but unfortanetly it’s my only day off so also the perfect day for a long run.

  2. Looks like a great week and a perfect day for being out on the trails. I ran 0 miles last week because I am dealing with an injury :/

  3. Ooooooh those trails! Looks liks it was a lot of fun. I kinda can’t wait until Titus is old enough to run with me 🙂 I gig outside fof a run on Sunday too. It was cool but good for running!
