CIM Training Week 18 & Weekly Wrap: 11/20-11/26

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving! Week 18 of marathon training is done! It was a great week visiting my sister in Oregon. Had a great time with family on Thanksgiving but I think I ate way too much! ;) I got in all my runs so I'm happy about that. I can't believe training is almost complete and I'll be running the California International Marathon this coming Sunday! 

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

Monday 11/20 -
Scheduled: Rest
Actual: Rest
Tuesday 11/21 -
Scheduled: 5 miles easy
Actual: 5 miles easy
Wednesday 11/22 -
Scheduled: 1.5 miles easy, 2 x 10 minutes at 8:20-25 with 2 minutes easy in between,
1.5 miles easy
Actual: 1.5 miles easy,  2 x 10 min. I hit my paces in the first mile of both (8:14 & 8:18) even a lot faster but I messed up on the end of each of the 10 min. (8:48, 8:55) because I thought it was my recovery time, watch snafu on my part. It was still a good run especially because I ran part of it with my sister.
Thursday 11/23 - Happy Thanksgiving!
Scheduled: Easy-recovery pace 30-35 minutes
Actual: 35 minute run with my sister.
Friday 11/24 -
Scheduled: 2 miles easy, 4-5 miles 8:55-9:00, 1 mile easy
Actual: 2 miles easy, and then ended up doing 5 miles at (8:43, 8:54, 8:51, 8:51, 8:52) and forgot to do the 1 mile easy. It was another partial run with my sister. :)
Saturday 11/25 -
Scheduled: Rest
Actual: Rest
Sunday 11/26 -
Scheduled: long run - 11 miles at 9:05-10
Actual: Back home. 11 miles with average pace 9:02.

It was a fun week in Oregon! We were there pretty much the whole week and kept busy. When we first arrived, my sister's kids still had school up to Wednesday so we tried our best to fill in the time while the boys cousins were in school. On Monday, we took the kids on a short hike at the Hoyt Arboretum. I loved the fall colors.

Tuesday, we went to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, or OMSI for short. It was the perfect thing to do on a rainy day. There was a neat gingerbread exhibit, another on illusions and other interesting exhibits. 
Thursday was of course Thanksgiving. The whole fam on my side was there which was great. 
We even made it out for a short hike at Noble Woods Park, which was a short walk away from my sister's place.
On Friday, we did a little bit of shopping, and I also ate this yummy burger at Mr. Bento burger. It was so good, one of the best burgers I've had in a long while.
Friday was our last full day with the fam before we headed back to CA.
The drive home was long and I couldn't help taking this pic of the boys sleeping in the car. :)
That sums up my week! I still can't believe CIM is on Sunday. I'm shooting for a sub 4 and hoping the weather cooperates.

Linking this post up with HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddlin for their Weekly Wrap. 
Have a great week!
