California International Marathon (CIM) Race Recap 12/3/17

California International Marathon (CIM) Race Recap 12/3/17
What a race! I completed my 2nd marathon at the California International Marathon last weekend! The race was held in the Sacramento area. It's a point to point race starting in Folsom and ending at the State Capitol. It was a tough one with the rolling hills and I struggled especially in the last few miles but I still came out with a great PR!

CIM Training Week 18 & Weekly Wrap: 11/20-11/26

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving! Week 18 of marathon training is done! It was a great week visiting my sister in Oregon. Had a great time with family on Thanksgiving but I think I ate way too much! ;) I got in all my runs so I'm happy about that. I can't believe training is almost complete and I'll be running the California International Marathon this coming Sunday! 

Here's a recap of what I did last week following Coach Dawn's plan:

CIM Training Week 17 & Weekly Wrap: 11/13-11/19

Week 17 is in the books! I can't believe that CIM is two weeks away! I got in all my scheduled runs this week even with Hubby away at a conference. I didn't get a good cross training workout with the girls but I did get some bike rides with the kids and some great runs with my 8 year old!

Run The Parkway 20 Miler Race Recap 11/5/17

Run The Parkway 20 Miler Race Recap
Last weekend I ran the Run the Parkway 20 mile race in Sacramento as a training run for CIM. I ran it with a friend and it went really well. It's a great run along the American River Parkway. The course is pretty much the same race I did last April (American River Parkway Half Marathon) but with almost 7 more miles added on. You can check out the recap for that race here.

CIM Marathon Training Week 15 & Weekly Wrap: 10/30-11/5

Week 15 of CIM training is in the books! It was a high mileage week at 42.5 miles! I think that's a high for the year when it comes to weekly mileage for me! Lots of miles and even got in a cross training workout with the girls. Sunday was the Run The Parkway 20 mile race that went really well. Just 4 more weeks until CIM!

Here's a recap of what I did last week following Coach Dawn's plan:

CIM Marathon Training Week 13 & Weekly Wrap: 10/16-10/22

Another decent week of training is in the books! I can't believe we are about 6 weeks until my second full marathon. Happy I got in all of my runs and even a cross training workout with the girls, something I have missed.
