Weekly recap: 12 weeks till Brooklyn

Weekly Training update.  The half marathon is 12 weeks away.  My training plan is starting to up my mid-week miles which I don’t like.  I feel safe and comfortable in the 3 mile zone!   This week called for 4,4,2 and 6 as the long run.  

Monday:  This week my husband got an improved mounting system for his bike trailer.  We had a great family bike ride after work.  The kids kept peeking their little eyes at me from behind.


We ended the bike ride at the local baseball field and the kids were so excited for ice cream.  They looked so silly I had to take a picture, then I couldn’t stop laughing!  


This is what summer looks like.  Dirty, tired kids with ice cream faces.  Workout was a 3 mile bike.  Super easy.

Tuesday, 5:30 am 4 mile run at 9:56 average pace.  I was happy with negative splits though.

Wednesday morning’s for had me like this…


I literally felt asleep the whole time. So I went for 2 and planned on knocking the last 2 out on the  treadmill later.  Needless to say. I got it done.  

Thursday took it to the gym for body pump.  It was amazing!   I even ran into a coworker.  I love making fitness friends.  


Friday Jimmy came down w a fever and had a super rough morning.  Needless to say I didn’t shower until my husband came home from work.  


Luckily, James came home and I got in a fast 3 miles in 26:17, then picked up Sam and went to our Friday yoga class.   

Saturday:  we took a bike ride into town, town pool, and I hope to meet up with a friend for my long run. 

Sunday: 6 miles along the Delaware while dad and the kids biked 7.  Finished with a dip in the river.  


On the way home we stopped at a farmers market and ran into some neighbors!  So excited for this produce!  Jimmy grabbed the peach and it was so juicy he was covered in peachy goodness.


Finished the day at the town pool, I couldn’t get the kids out of the water! Sam is doing amazing and Jimmy is a little fish too! 


Nothing like a summer day.

Next week mileage is 5,5, 3, & 7 miles!
