Weekly Wrap: The week of will I or won't I

This week was full on taper mode for a half marathon I was signed up to run on Saturday.  I was finding it hard to get to worked up about the half marathon as the weather towards the end of the week looked very bad and I was planning to make the 2.5 hour drive up to the race the morning of the race.  I had no intentions of making the drive if the roads were going to be bad.  I don't mind running in the cold, but driving so far on bad roads is not my idea of fun.

Sunday: 2 hour hike with the family,  4.2 mile easy run   20 minutes of yoga

It was a perfect afternoon for a hike and it seemed like it had been too long since we all got out together. Roader loved it too.

 The kids ran ahead and spent some time working on their secret fort.

A pretty spot to stop and rest.

and after that my run!

Monday: 4.22 miles and more yoga and snow, 21 day Fix upper body

Tuesday: Rest day

Wednesday: 5.1 miles before the snowstorms moved in. Was feeling blah. not feeling confident about the half marathon and worried I wouldn't be going either with the weather forecast of snow snow and crappy roads

Thursday:  8 inches of snow and crappy roads. Rest day

Friday morning:  more snow and crappier roads.  By Friday afternoon though the road reports were looking good so I got excited about the half marathon finally!

Saturday morning I got up at 3 am and left the house at 4:30 to drive to Bozeman. I got there at 7 and ran my half marathon!  Race report coming soon!

Miles run: 21.6
Strength workouts: 1
Yoga: 2

Light week! I did tapering really well, which I usually don't do.

  1. Isn't it so crazy how the weather can change so dramatically in one week? We're getting snow--finally--tonight and tomorrow. Since we haven't had any snow since December, the weathermen are especially dramatic! We could get 3 inches or 10 inches! Sheesh. As long as it melts by my race next Saturday...

  2. Crazy how you have all that snow...and a couple hours down the road, you're wearing a tank top for your race ;-)

  3. Looks like you had an awesome week for a taper week! I look forward to reading your race recap! :)

    The weather has been crazy here and we are expecting a snowstorm on Tuesday, I'm so bummed :(

  4. I'm so happy the roads were clear for your travel. It's comforting to know there is someone else out there who will drive that kind of distance on race day. I prefer sleeping in my own bed! Congrats on a great race. Obviously, you did a great job with your taper week! Thanks for linking, Christy!

  5. I never feel guilty taking a day off when it is snows. It doesn't happen often, so why not enjoy it and have a relaxing day! Good job on your half!

  6. Oh my goodness, you drove for 2.5 hours to a race and then cranked out a fantastic time! Good job! I'm glad the weather held out and you got to race. Congrats!

  7. Love the photos of the family hike. And what a change with all the snow!

    I'm not sure if I could wake up at 3am for a 2.5 hour drive to run a half! So glad the roads cleared for you.

  8. So glad the snow melted and you were able to run your half. I agree about road conditions too. I hate driving when there's snow, but the roads don't bother me too much, though I'm vigilant - it's the people who panic and cause the accidents.

  9. Glad you were able to do your half marathon! Its snowing here today so Ill be keeping my workout indoors.


Because I love hearing from you all!
