Week 10 Half Marathon Training | Recap

What a difference a week can make!  Last weekend I was feeling down and bad about myself.  Shopping was a disaster and I was a drag to be around (just ask my kiddos!) This week I increased my miles big time and I feel great!  I'm not exhausted and sore like I thought I would be.  YAY!! Elysse and I went to a Disney Jr. Live show Saturday morning, while the boys went to a matinee and then we all met up for a yummy lunch.  I also went shopping on Saturday and guess what? I found some jeans.  I walked into this little boutique shop after exhausting all the regular stores and the super friendly sales person got me into not one but two pairs of jeans I actually liked.  Go figure, huh!  And to top it off,  I also found some cute tops and a dress at some other stores.  I hadn't found so much clothes in one day before in...well, I can't even remember it's been that long! 

Here's the recap for week 10 of half marathon training: 

Monday: 60 minutes of Pure Intensity Training Class

Tuesday: 3.16 miles outdoor evening run 

Wednesday:  6.70 miles - outdoor dessert mountain trail run with a running group (this was intense) I was pretty sore after this one.  Running on a trail is so different than running on pavement.  It was a lot of fun and I'd love to add it to my routine.

Thursday:  REST DAY

Friday: 5.05 miles on the treadmill

Saturday: REST DAY 

Sunday: 8.58 miles morning run outside.  

Total Miles: 23.49

Jason and I are going out of town this Thursday.  We're photographing a wedding & taking a few days afterwards as a belated anniversary getaway :) I already have my running shorts packed.  Actually, it's the only thing I have packed.  I'm really looking forward to this trip, but I have a ton of things to do before we leave so I'm feeling a little overwhelmed right now.  I'm sure it'll all get done even if I don't sleep a few nights!

And just for fun...Last week I was texting with my cousin about running and she wrote back "Run Forrest Run" so this one's for you Miriam! Hope it makes you laugh :)
