Rock ‘n Roll Raleigh Half Training – Week 5

Week 5 was such a success! Felt great the entire week.



Sunday – I met Jen, Joanna & Jamie out at Heinz Lofts for a 5 mile run on the trail. It wasn’t as cold as Saturday, but it was nice to run with some new friends!

Monday – I hit up my weekly EFX class & got a great workout. I LOVE going to FASTER so much!

Tuesday + Wednesday I had class.

Thursday – I had the day off. It was snowing for a good bit of the morning so I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to run. I headed out to Pro Bike + Run & had Coach JD fit me for some new shoes. I bought another pair of the New Balance 1080s (LOVE THIS SHOE!). I’ll be back in a couple weeks to pick up either the Mizuno Waveriders or the Asics Dynaflight. Once I was done running around, I got home & talked myself into going for a quick run. It turned out to be a beautiful day. I ran 2 miles around my neighborhood to test run my new shoes.

Friday – Rest day!

Saturday – I spent Saturday morning with my usual PBR group. It was 15 degrees at the start! It turned out to be a great run though. I was the only mentor with my little group & I didn’t get anyone lost! And I apparently did great with pacing, so I’m proud of myself! 8 miles total for the morning + it felt good! I was so cold, I immediately raced home & the first thing I did was hop in the hot shower. Then I climbed on the couch with a cup of coffee & binge watched the Amazing Race. I’m currently addicted to binge watching that show! So good!

I’m hoping that next week is just as good as this one! Although I’m totally dreading that Sunday is a run day, right after my long run.. It’s unfortunate that my schedule is the way it is this semester but that’s alright – it’ll only last til May then I’m free!

How was your training this week? Did you hit the goals you made for yourself?

    Hooray for a great week. It would be wonderful to run with new friends even in that frigid weather. The Amazing Race is my favorite show! I want to be on there. Seriously. Are you watching older seasons? From what I heard, they shot a new season but the network isn’t showing it! I’m so disappointed. Thanks for linking, Ciara!

    What season of Amazing Race are you on?! I’ve been watching it every night with Dan and it’s so good. We’re actually applying to be on and now when we’re in the car we’re always practicing in case we’re on haha! Great job this week especially for the long run. I’ll FOR SURE be there this week!

      I’m watching them backwards! so I’m on season 24, 23? I think. Hulu has the ENTIRE series! I can’t believe it. They don’t have the most recent season though, the social media people. That would be amazing if you got on! I would LOVE to be on it.. looks amazing. See you Saturday! We’re in Schenley!
