CIM Marathon Training Week 4 & Weekly Wrap: 8/14-8/20

Week 4 of CIM Marathon training is done and it went well! We got back from Lassen on Monday and back to training I went. I got in a all of my runs and a couple of good cross-training workouts. I can't believe school starts up for the boys on Wednesday!

Scheduled: Cross Training/Lassen
Actual: Short hike at Subway Caves & Rest (drive home from Lassen)

Scheduled: 2 miles easy, 2 miles - 9:15-25, 1 mile easy 
Actual: 2 miles easy, 2 miles (9:20, 9:18), 1 mile easy with a friend. Then a good arm and core workout with a friend.

Fun things that happened this week, on Thursday, I took the kids with some friends to Adventure Playground in Berkeley. It's a great place for kids to play and build creatively. The boys had a good time!
There were ropes for the kids to climb.
They could also use hammers to build things or add on to existing structures.
On Saturday we took the boys rollerblading outside. It had been a while since we roller-bladed and it was nice to see them improve from last time. 
On Sunday the highlight of the day was my long run partly with friends.
The rest of the weekend was doing a bunch of errands and resting. I even got in a nap. :)
That pretty much sums up my week! Linking this post up with HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddlin for their Weekly Wrap. This week's new Guest Host for the Weekly Wrap is Madhuri from Ponder 'N' Wonder. Please be sure and check out her blog!

Have a great week!
