Last Week's Workouts and Weekly Wrap 7/10-7/16

It's been another good week of runs and workouts. I'm happy I got in two cross-training workouts with the girls and a really good 7 mile run on Thursday! I'm not sure how much running I'll get in next week as we are on a road trip to both Tetons and Yellowstone National Park along with visiting Hubby's mom in Utah. I'm excited for this fun adventure!

Here's a recap of last week's workouts:

Eagle Rock Hike at Lake Tahoe

Eagle Rock Hike at Lake Tahoe
A friend invited us out to Lake Tahoe for a day trip that included a hike and of course I was up for it. She had actually heard about this hike from another blogger friend of hers, Hither and Thither. We hiked the Eagle Rock trail and it turned out to be the perfect short hike with amazing views.

Last Week's Workouts and Weekly Wrap 7/3-7/9

It was another busy week! I'm happy that I got in some good runs in even while away in Seattle. We took a short trip to celebrate my dad's 70th birthday. It was a surprise party so it was fun to see his reaction. It is always good going back to the Seattle area. I don't have any races scheduled until October but I will be running my second full marathon, CIM in December and I will start training in a couple of weeks.

Here's a recap of what I did last week:

Last Week's Workouts and Weekly Wrap 6/26-7/2

Another week is done and I got more running and workouts in as I felt better. I ended up with 79 miles for June so it wasn't my best month but with getting sick and taking it easy I'll take it. The cough is slightly there but it is mostly gone so I'm looking forward to getting at 100%. I finally posted a recap of the awesome waterfall hikes we went on while at Yosemite National Park and you can check it out here

Awesome Waterfalls to Visit at Yosemite National Park

Awesome Waterfalls to Visit at Yosemite National Park
We were lucky enough to go to Yosemite National Park Memorial Day weekend with good friends. We even got a pretty awesome camp site, thanks to Hubby and his patience on the computer in January months before to reserve the spot. Due to the record amount of rainfall and snow this year, we were very excited about the trip because we knew the waterfalls would be amazing. Let's just say they did not disappoint.

Last Week's Workouts and Weekly Wrap 6/19-6/25

Last week involved a lot of rest due to getting sick. I was tired most of the week and just did not feel like exercising. Good news is that my voice is back and I am mostly recovered. I say mostly because I still have a lingering cough that does not seem to go away. 

Here's a recap of what went on last week:

Kaiser Permanente Women's Fitness Festival 5K Race Recap 6/4/17

Kaiser Permanente Women's Fitness Festival 5K Race Recap
It had been a while since I raced a 5K so when my friend Lenora asked if I wanted to join her in a local 5K, the Kaiser Permanente's Women's Fitness Festival, I was up for it. We signed up about 2.5 weeks before the run. I didn't have any type of training plan but tried to get a couple of speed workouts in. I was in hopes of getting a PR but I wasn't sure I would get it when I decided to go out with friends the night before the race. :p

Last Week's Workouts and Weekly Wrap 6/12-6/18

This week was the kiddo's first week off of school! There were no camps for them this week but I still kept them busy. As for workouts, the week started off great with tennis, running, and cross training with the girls, but I didn't get in a long run over the weekend due to getting sick. I'm still not 100% as I've got some coughing and I even lost my voice.

Mizuno Wave Sky Neutral Shoe Review

Mizuno Wave Sky Neutral Shoe Review

This post is sponsored by Mizuno in partnership with Fitfluential. All opinions are my own.

Mizuno has come out with a brand new Neutral shoe, the Mizuno Wave Sky. I've tried Mizuno's before and thought they were decent shoes. The styles I tested out were the Enigma and Wave Rider 20's. The Wave Riders were a less cushioned shoe and the Enigma a max cushion shoe. I had heard that the Wave Sky's were also a max cushion shoe and with another marathon coming up in the future, felt these would be great to try for longer runs. 

Last Week's Workouts and Weekly Wrap 6/5-6/11

Another good week of runs and workouts is in the books. It was a busy and fun week with school ending for the boys and birthday parties over the weekend. I did get my recap of Bay to Breakers up and you can check it out here if you have not already.
