American River Parkway Half Marathon Training Week 3: 1/23-1/29

Week 3 of half marathon training has been good! If you missed my 2017 Running Race Schedule post, I mentioned that my goal half marathon race was cancelled (Pony express Half) but luckily I found a backup race that was the same weekend, the American River Parkway half marathon. I'm on track for training for that and still hoping to PR! I'm happy I got all my workouts in this week and met all of my scheduled paces!

As to the weekend, Saturday started with a basketball game for 5 year old in the morning and soccer tryouts for 7 year old ( no pics of soccer since Hubby took him). 
After lunch, 7 year old had his basketball game. It was a busy day for him. 
Sunday's highlight was my morning 8 mile run. I got up early to run part of it with a friend and it was nice to have the company and extra cool to see the sunrise. I forgot how pretty and peaceful it is in the morning. 
We were having some of Hubby's friends from work over for dinner so we prepped for that but we did get some play time outside with kids beforehand.
That pretty much sums up my week! Linking this post up with HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddlin for their Weekly Wrap. 
Have a great week!
