CIM Marathon Training Week 12 & Weekly Wrap: 10/9-10/15

Week 12 of marathon training is done! Had to run indoors one day due to the air quality being bad because of the fires here in Northern California. So sad how so many lost their homes. My heart goes out to all those who have been affected by the fires. On a brighter note, I did get my Rock'n'Roll San Jose race recap up on the blog and you can check out how the race went here.

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

Rock'n'Roll San Jose Half Marathon Race Recap 10/8/17

Rock'n'Roll San Jose Half Marathon Race Recap 10/8/17
I ran the Rock'n'Roll San Jose Half marathon last weekend and it went as great as a race can get for me. I ran this half marathon last year but I ran it as a training run before Chicago. You can check out last year's recap here. It's not often I can say that I actually am happy with my results. However for this one, I'm exceedingly happy with how it went. The last time I tried for a PR, I was disappointed because I knew I could have done better. This time I exceeded my expectations and finally got that PR I have been hoping to get for a while.

CIM Marathon Training Week 11 & Weekly Wrap: 10/2-10/8

Week 11 of CIM Marathon training went great! It was an easy week of running due to the San Jose Rock'n'Roll half marathon race on Sunday. Coach was kind and gave me a mini taper and it worked. I took it easy and the race turned out to be an awesome run because I finished with a PR! :)

Urban Cow Half Marathon Race Recap 10/1/17

Urban Cow Half Marathon Race Recap 10/1/17
I ran the Urban Cow Half Marathon last weekend and it was a great run! I had heard it was a good race in Sacramento and even signed up early for the race while I was at the CIM expo with a friend last December. The route is a good one and I was impressed with the course and how well organized the race was.

CIM Marathon Training Week 10 & Weekly Wrap: 9/25-10/1

Week 10 of CIM Marathon Training is in the books. Another good week of great runs! It was busy with work and fun (my parents visited over the weekend). I didn't get any cross training workouts with the girls due to work so I miss them especially the battle ropes but it looks like I've got to cut down this week as well due to Rock and Roll San Jose coming up on Sunday!
