Last week’s workouts were not the norm. My kids were on school vacation and I had most of the week off from work at the hospital. I missed my gym workouts. I missed yoga at the studio. And I started the week with a rest day which felt really bizarre.
Rest day at Great Wolf Lodge
If you’ve been there, you know it’s not a restful place for adults. But thankfully, you can drink anywhere.
3.7 mile trail run, 1176 ft elev gain, 15:00 avg pace
When you have two moms with the week off from work AND with childcare for the morning, you head to the mountains. This was my first time running Mt. Major in almost a year. It was muddy, wet and a little snowy/icy in spots near the summit. We had to power hike a good portion because of run off but it was heavenly.
7 mile run, 346 ft elev gain, 8:51 avg pace
My quads were feeling it on this mornings run from the descent of Mt. Major the day before. But I got to wore shorts, ran with Kyle AND I beat the rain. I call that a win!

I enjoyed the most spectacular sunrise for the duration of this run. Always worth the early morning alarm!
5 mile run with 1:00 pick ups at every mile, 263 elev gain, 8:40 avg pace
As with most Saturday mornings, I gave myself too little time to run before having to leave from morning kid sports. I didn’t intend for this to be a “faster” run but I was running out of time.
11.8 mile trail run, 744 ft elev gain, 10:35 avg pace
I joined a group of old and new friends (plus one fur friend) for what was supposed to be a 9 mile run. But we added a little more with a detour which turned out to be just fine. It was muddy, wet, pouring rain at times and so much fun. My toes are a little beat up but other than that I feel great. Not bad for my longest trail run in over a year.
Linking up with Hoho and Wendy for the weekly workout wrap up.
How was your week in workouts?
