The Weekly Wrap Up-Rock CF Half Marathon training Week 7

Hey friends–you may be confused as this is posting on Tuesday, but with the holiday yesterday, I just didn’t get around to typing up last week’s recap until this morning since I was having so much fun yesterday getting my oil changed, tires rotated and doing my taxes (heavy sarcasm!)  So–since I just finished week 7 of my Rock CF Half marathon training plan, let’s see how it went in the Weekly Wrap Up!

Week of 2/8-2/14

Monday: It was a snow day for us, I was home with Ashton so I logged 4 miles during his nap!

Tuesday: Strength–wasn’t feeling it when I got to the gym but pushed through and had a pretty good workout!

Then, went to a 3 hour long meeting and one of my awesome work friends brought us all candy from her weekend trip to VT!  SCORE!

Wednesday: Speedwork–4 miles of 400m repeats! These are starting to feel a tiny bit easier.

In the evening, Robyn had a late night work staff meeting so I went out on a date with my favorite little man.  We had such a fun time!  He got a hair cut and then picked where we went out for dinner!  Score for all of us–he got ice cream, we got to spend time together and I didn’t have to cook!

Thursday: Another strength training day, I didn’t snap a pic because I had an early morning meeting I was rushing to, but this pic was taken from my office right before I stepped into my meeting. I love the views from where we are on the Boston Harbor, even when its blistery cold out, its gorgeous!

Friday: Easy 2 miles and foam rolling

Saturday: I got up early to run my 10 miles before Ashton woke up because we had a busy day ahead of us. It was great because I killed two birds with one stone, got my run done and I was able to watch the new Grey’s Anatomy and then Scandal episodes and it was the perfect timing. I had about 2 mins left of Scandal when I hit 10 miles and then I cool downed and was done, all before 8 am!  I also wore my Altras for the entire run and I felt surprisingly good! I was a bit worried since I jumped from 4 miles right to 10 miles in the them but it worked out okay!

We ran a bunch of errands in prep for Ashton’s birthday party (eek!) next Saturday and then stopped by so Ash could meet his buddy Pete the Cat!

Sunday: Rest day!  Since it was Valentine’s Day we got up, lounged around for a bit, then went to our favorite bagel place for breakfast and drove into Boston for our annual V-day tradition of getting some yummy hot cocoa and treats at Burdick’s.  It was -13 when we arrived, so we were more than ready for something warm to drink!

Robyn and I both got the single source Guatemalan dark chocolate hot cocoa. Robyn also got a slice of orange chocolate hazelnut cake, while Ashton got a regular dark chocolate hot cocoa and a chocolate macaroon.  It was delicious as usual and I love being able to share our holiday traditions with Ashton. After that, we came home, had lunch and Ashton went down for a nap. I was supposed to have a hair appointment but when I arrived, they were closed!!!  To say I was annoyed was a bit of an understatement. So I went home and we spent the rest of the day playing games and hanging out!

So,  there it is, the Weekly Wrap Up!  Overall, another solid week of training and a great long run!!

Have a great Tuesday! I am travelling for work later this week, so it’s up in the air if I will be posting later this week…if not, have a great week!

  1. It sounds like it was a great week of training for you. Good luck with your work travel next week.

    I don’t have any major races for a while. I enjoy being sporadic and doing smaller ones.
