Weekly Activity

Sunday – The Great 38 Half Marathon
Monday – REST
Tuesday – Leg Day – Light
Wednesday – Run 3.11
Thursday – Run 1 mile
Friday – Rest
Saturday – 12 miles

Well with my first half marathon behind me I am hoping the rest of them this season is a great improvement from my efforts on Sunday. Yall, it sucked! I seriously wanted to quit and I’ve only been in that place once before! I had to dig deep, real damn deep I tell you! I let how I was feeling get to my head. Sure it’s hard a lot of the time but you just keep pushing. I did not quiet my mind and all of the negativity until it had its grip on me.

Thankfully AG awards are given to those who ran in your age group and not by your performance from that day!

I admit I did worry about this race, I have not been doing any speed work and I knew I’d be slower than normal. It’s no secret I’ve lacked motivation this summer. I still kept running but not like I was. The high humidity of course you know sucks any and every bit of life out of you. It all got to me, I was alone on the course as it was not as many people so we were spread out. Factor after factor effected me that day but I DID FINISH! Just by luck, I got an AG award.

I’ve had a few people ask me about where the name The Great 38 came from, so in case you were wondering…

Chucky Mullins #38 will forever be a legend at The University of Mississippi. Orphaned as a child and later adopted by his high school coach, he overcame life’s obstacles and went on to play football for Ole Miss. Sadly, Chucky lost his life due to an injury obtained during a football game.

What a perfect end to Monday!

As a Move More Fitness Ambassador, I was one of the #lucky ones who received Lucky Rings not only for me but my spouse as well! They have some pretty cool silicone wedding rings available. I personally think I like the men’s thicker version, especially the ones that have the lucky clover image on them!

Feeling Lucky?

These are the ones we received, mine is turquoise and the hubs is camouflage. We put them through 12 hot, humid and very sweaty miles on Saturday and I’m proud to say they made the cut!

It’s Rodeo Time!

Some other fun things this week,  we went to see my daughter ride in a rodeo on Friday night. She competed in the barrels and her and her horse, Brisco had a smoking run but unfortunately wrapped the second barrel a little too tight and it went down. They also had a couple of fun events I enjoyed like the Wild Cow Milking and let me tell you this was something to see! It was a great night of family fun entertainment.

His longest run yet!

I was out late Friday with traveling back but up early on Saturday. The hubs did a little swapping with his weekends and tackled 12 miles in preps for Vegas in a few weeks.  It was still summerlike temps and humidity tough was putting it lightly BUT we stuck together and made it!

After that, we had a full Waffle House breakfast and we both went to work! We ran hard, worked hard and ended the night sitting in a booth relaxing to the sound of a band, and being entertained by people on the dance floor!

What’s your favorite rodeo event? Have you seen a Wild Cow Milking event? Did you get to race this weekend? How did it go?

  3. Congratulations on finishing the half and getting an age group award! Heat and humidity are so tough, especially for longer races like a half marathon. I hope you have had a good recovery this week and that things are going well for you, stinks about the technical problems with the blog too!

  4. Way to push through and finish your half! Congrats on the AG award!

  5. Sorry you had a tough race! The humidity really makes running so much harder. Awesome job pushing through it and congrats on the AG award!

  6. Bugh. I know that kind of race. Hell I know that kind of marathon where all of it pretty much sucks. I feel you on the humidity. Mad props to you for hanging in there and finishing it! Better races are ahead of you!

  7. I ran a really humid half in September and it was brutal! Congrats on powering through it… hopefully fall weather arrives soon!

  8. I’m sorry your race didn’t go so well. It is unseasonably hot for October! Great job to you and Greg on your 12 miles yesterday and congrats again on your AG award at the Great 38!

  9. This lack of fall weather is really ruining some training plans! I know I specifically pick fall races because I always get faster when the cool weather comes. But all of this humidity is really wrecking that! Luckily it sounds like you have a few more redemption runs coming up. I’ll be running the MCM 10K this weekend – I’m hoping for a redemption from the Navy 5 Miler a few weeks ago!

  10. I haven’t been to a rodeo in years, but I love to watch team roping and bulldogging! It’s a good time. 🙂

    Sometimes when we train for these long races we tell ourselves we should be able to complete these distances no problem. But at the end of the day… 13.1 miles is a long dang way to be on your feet! You’re awesome!

  11. Oh my goodness. I so feel your pain in the race. I have been there many times! So congrats for finishing–and snagging an AG award!!!–because finishing when it’s that tough is one of the hardest things.

  13. Congrats on pushing through a tough race! Long runs in heat and/or humidity can be so rough.

  14. Sorry about the tough race but it sounds like you pushed through! The heat and humidity definitely make Summer training tough and it seems like we didn’t have the cooler race temperatures in Fall to make up for it.

  15. I completely understand how you feel about the first half based on your lack-luster summer training. I’m in the same boat. I didn’t run longer than 4 miles after the Utah Valley half in June and zero speed work. I know my first half will be slower than my usual slow and I’m just hoping for cool temps on race day. Proud of you for pushing through ..it’s tough when it’s hot, humid and you’re alone out there. That’s the main reason I like large races …no matter how slow you are, there’s always runners around you. It makes a difference.

    Congratulations on the AG and I’m sure you’ll see different results in Vegas!!

  18. Congrats on the race and the extra bling! Sometimes you just need to break that barrier and then the flow will start coming back 🙂 I’ve been in that tough mental place many a time lol it makes for some looooong miles.
    I confess I have not been to a rodeo! I witnessed a demonstration on Montana but it wasn’t a full on event.

  19. Good job on pushing through on what was a tough run for you. Congrats on your AG award – that’s a sweet medal! You and your husband both must be getting pretty excited about his first half coming up!

    I love your sunset picture. It’s gorgeous!

    Thanks for the linkup!

  20. Wild cow milking? Now that is something I’d like to see!!!

    it’s hard to get back on the horse again, isn’t it? I’ve been really struggling with my running as well and the thought of running anything of distance is really overwhelming to me. Altho today I had a fantastic run, so I know I’ve still got it in me. I’m glad to see you do too!

  23. Hello, Tricia.

    What a lovely family you have there. A family that runs together, stays together. Haha. Made that up. Those are lovely rings. I want to buy one. Do you know where can I get them?

  24. You are right… humidity does suck the life out of you. Great job on sticking with the half … and congrats on the AG award!

  25. You are training your hubby well! Congrats on your AG award 😉 (sorry I’m late AGAIN seeing this….maybe the email updates for your blog posts are going to my spam folder? UGH) DO you have any of the Waffle House arm warmers? Did you know all the cool gals have them (even the ones who don’t have a Waffle House anywhere close LOL)

  27. Way to push through the half marathon. It’s been a brutal summer that just doesn’t seem
    To want to end!! Even though you didn’t have the race you expected, I bet it felt good to earn that medal and AG award! (And run for a good cause). And congrats to your husbands long run!!! Fall race season is just getting started so you have time to redeem yourself. Hang in there Chica, summer is almost over and fall should be arriving soon, hopefully before winter, lol!

  28. I like your rings! I’ll have to check into that. Congrats to Mr. Sippi on that long run! I think he’s ready for Vegas. It’s been years since I’ve been to the rodeo but I do remember it being so much fun!
