Rock ‘n Roll Raleigh Half Training – Week 4

Week 4 felt like exactly what I needed! I got in the miles that I needed & felt good about it.


Sunday – I went on a quick 3 mile run around Carnegie to test how I was feeling. I spent the 2 days before that on the couch due to a sinus infection so I was glad to get out & get these miles in.

Monday – I went to EFX @ FASTER & had an amazing workout! I almost didn’t go. Halfway through the day at work, I didn’t feel like going, so I cancelled it. Then I realized I was just making excuses, so I signed back up & went. So glad I did! Coach Jason is amazing.

Tuesday – I had Anatomy 2 class & we dissected sheep hearts in lab! It was fun. Totally nerd-ed out & loved it.

Wednesday – I wanted to get out for a quick run after work but after I put my running clothes & headed outside, it started raining. Nah. I’m not that hardcore anymore. I didn’t really need the miles so I decided to run errands instead.

Thursday – I went to the gym as it snow flurried outside, but decided only to do 2 miles.

Friday – I had an appointment after work & Friday’s are my rest days!

Saturday – It was absolutely FREEZING Saturday morning! I met up with Pro Bike + Run around 730am for 6 miles. We dodged icy sidewalks & streets, but the coach of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation team had hot soup & peach/blueberry cobbler waiting for us. It was delicious & we raised almost $700 for CF! I love these runs when they come. I enjoy talking to new people & I love raising money for a good cause!

    You seemed to have sent your sinus problem to me! Glad it was over quickly (I’m on day 4) and you could get back to training!

    I feel like since I’m not officially training yet my running days are all over the place, so I am excited to get back into a routine.

    You know I wasn’t feeling the ice // snow Saturday morning. I would have loved to run a few miles on Sunday, but we hiked instead, so still got out & moving. 🙂

    Running for a good cause makes it even better suffering the cold.

    Hey – question – after having the stomach bug & wanting to get electrolytes back in sync – I was thinking about getting some Nuun around the house & know you’re an ambassador – what do you recommend?

    I love the big group photo from Saturday–so awesome that so many people come out, and so cool that our group was so big! I’m so grateful to have the group to run with!

    You have the best leggings! The pattern on them is really cute. Great job this week! I hope to see you at the group run this weekend…I’m planning on being there!
