RnR SD training: Week 5

This past week was a great training week. I posted some solid numbers. This is how it went down.

Monday: Rest
Tuesday: 4 miles of hills (10:54 pace)
Wednesday: Ab workout
Thursday: 3 mile easy run (10:58 pace)
Friday: Rest
Saturday: pulled weeds = arm & leg workout
Sunday: 8 mile long run (11:26 pace)

You guys should be proud of me. I did BOTH of my weekday runs right after work! I was completely done with my workout by 7pm both days. It’s crazy how much you can get done when you aren’t waiting for your food to settle so you can work out. It was rad! Since hubs hasn’t worked out with me in a long time, I decided that I’m going to workout earlier now. Ahhh I am so excited.

I put off doing my long run as long as possible this past weekend. I spent the weekend cleaning with hubs so I was TIRED. Finally, at 9 pm on Sunday, I decided to git-R-dun. I almost stopped at mile 6 because I was just ready to be done but I told myself to go just one more mile. Then I hit 7 and decided I was too close to 8 to stop. In the end, I got 8 miles done in a pretty dang good time for me.

This week is going to jump up in mileage big time, so even though it is Marathon Monday and I really want to run, I’m using this rest day wisely.


This weekend was SO much fun! We decided to celebrate the fact that my husband is AWESOME with good food all weekend.

Saturday, we made the most delicious steaks with mashed potatoes, salad and WINE.


Holy YUM! Then Sunday we had Carne asada tacos.


You can take the girl outta SoCal but you can’t take SoCal outta the girl.

Then we decided to be über classy and finish Sunday up with indoor s’mores.



It was fan-freaking-tastic. It’s a good thing I didn’t stop at 6 miles so that I could burn off more of the food I ate!

All in all, it was a fabulous weekend. Now, is it Friday yet?!
