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.

Bay to Breakers Race Recap 5/21/17
This year was the second time running Bay to Breakers. You can check out last year's recap here. This is the best race to do with friends and have a fun time. No need to worry about pace or time for this run. It's all about the experience and seeing all the costumes. We even went with matching outfits this year. :)

Last Week's Workouts and Weekly Wrap 5/29-6/4

This week was a busy week. The school year is winding down and there are lots of end of year activities and field trips going on. We also celebrated my older son's birthday. I didn't get a long run in this week and no cross training but I ended the week with a personal best in the 5K at the Kaiser Permanente Women's Fitness Festival race.

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

Lynch Canyon Trail Hike 4/9/17

Lynch Canyon Trail Hike
This post is long overdue but I'm happy to recap this hike, since it is always better late than never and I love posting our adventures. Our main goal on this day was to look for wildflowers. We started off our search by car. We drove on Bear Valley road hoping to see fields of wildflowers but came out with not much luck. We did see a small field and that was about it. The road also became very muddy so we turned around in fear of getting stuck. However Hubby had a hike planned on the Lynch Canyon trail as a backup.

Last Week's Workouts and Weekly Wrap 5/8-5/14

It was a great week of workouts. I can't seem to take more than a day off from running and when friends want to go run I can never say no. I got in some good runs and even got in a T25 workout. I forgot how hard T25 can be and I'm hoping to do more of those types of workouts while not having a training schedule right now.

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