Tunnel Light Marathon Training Week 3: 5/14-5/20

It's been another good week of marathon training! Got in all my scheduled runs and strength workouts. I did get a chance to post my trip report of our hike up Angel's Landing. If you haven't checked it out you can read about the amazing hike here. Highlight of the week was running Bay to Breakers over the weekend. It was a lot of fun!

Hiking Angel's Landing 4/29/18

Hiking Angel's Landing - Zion National Park 4/29/18 Trip Report
The day after running the Zion Half Marathon we ventured to hike Angel's Landing in Zion National Park. I had heard about the hike before, but did not realize how mentally challenging it would be. I'm not usually afraid of heights but with the amount of people, wind, and steepness, I almost backed out of doing it at one point but realized it was my chance to do it at that moment. I had to give it a shot because who knew when I'd be back. I'm so glad I did because it was an unforgettable experience.

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

Zion Half Marathon Race Recap 4/28/18

Zion Half Marathon Race Recap 4/28/18
A couple weeks ago, I ran the Zion Half Marathon put on by Vacation Races and it was so much fun! What made it so fun was the company and of course the beautiful scenery. Me and my friend Erin were reunited with our good friend Lenora that we had not seen since last summer so it was great that we were all able to catch up and do this race together.

Tunnel Light Marathon Training Week 1: 4/30-5/6

It's been a while since I've posted a Weekly Wrap post but I figure since I'm starting up marathon training (yes, I'm now on to marathon #3), now is the best time to get back into posting regularly. After CIM and especially after our trip to Japan, I kind of just took a break with the weekly wrap posts. It's been nice to take a break, however I'm excited to post again and hope you enjoy following along on my journey, training for the Tunnel Light marathon in September.

I'm working with Coach Dawn again. I'm on a 20 week training schedule. Here's a recap of last week's workouts following her plan:

Table Rock Hike 4/21/18

Table Rock (Napa Valley) Hike 4/21/18
It was really nice to get in a hike last weekend. With no soccer game and no work, it was the perfect opportunity to get in some good family outdoor time. Hubby picked out a hike to Table Rock located near Calistoga, CA and it was a fun one!

Rock'n'Roll San Francisco Half Marathon Race Recap 4/8/18
This was my third year running Rock'n'Roll San Francisco Half marathon! You can check out my recaps of my past two races here and here. It was another fun one and it was neat to see the changes they made with the course! Turned out to be a perfect day to run on the Golden Gate Bridge!

Davis Lucky Run 10K Race Recap 3/24/18

Davis Lucky Run 10K Race Recap 3/24/18
A little over a week ago I ran the Davis Lucky Run 10K and it turned out to be an awesome run for me. I ran the race last year but did the 10 miler. This year they did not offer the 10 mile race but only the 5K or 10K. I opted for the 10K since I knew I had it in me to possibly PR having done Shamrock'n two weeks prior. I knew I had the endurance but wasn't sure about the speed. Another special thing about this race, it was also a big birthday for me, the big 4-0.

Shamrock'n Half Marathon Race Recap 3/11/18

Shamrock'n Half Marathon Race Recap 3/11/18
A couple of weeks ago I ran the Shamrock'n Half marathon in Sacramento. It was a fun one. I decided to not race it for time because ever since I got back from our Japan trip, I'd been feeling not as speedy and with the time change (moving clocks forward an hour thus losing an hour) I just felt I needed to take it easy. Turned out to be so much fun running it with one of my coworkers.

Shamrock'n Half Marathon Training Week 7: 2/12-2/18

Last week was a busy week with getting ready for me and Hubby's trip, Valentine's day, and our youngest son's birthday. I didn't get all my runs in last week as I had to move the long run to this week due traveling. I slacked on cross training again, but with how busy the week was, I'm ok with it. For those that don't follow me on Instagram or Twitter, I tagged along on Hubby's work trip to Japan. It's actually our first trip without the kiddos as my parents are taking care of the kids. :)

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