Leave It All On The Road // 05.04.2015 // RnR Portland Half Training #10

Hello friends!  It’s time for my weekly fitness recap.   13 days (2 weeks!) until the Portland Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon!!! You won’t see a whole lot of activity this past week…I’m supposing we took a lil’ bit more time than expected from the hilly Calgary Police Half Marathon last weekend.  By the time Thursday rolled around, I had plans for the evening…and then on Friday…we just wanted to go home and relax after a fairly long work week.  We ran strong and hard over the weekend, and plan to stay strong over the next two weeks.  Was it too much rest…maybe….but in the end, I’m glad we took the time to heal our bodies and our minds.

{ Fitness Link-Ups }

I’m linking up with Road Runner Girl for The Weekly Chase and with Jesica from rUnladylike for Week-in-Review, in the hopes that setting weekly goals will help keep me on track throughout the week!

What I’m most proud of:

Racking up 75 miles in the month of April!!!  AND reaching 25% of my goal mileage for the year (200 miles)!

Where I struggled:

Not too much negativity constructive feedback for this week.  I think we did as our bodies requested.

Thought for the week ahead:


Last week’s goals:

Goal #1: Spend the right amount of time recovering. #SUCCESS

This week’s goals:

Goal #1: Stay strong and stay healthy for the next two weeks.

How is YOUR fitness training going?
