Rock 'n' Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon Training: Week 12

So I got back at it this week. I wanted to ease back in so nothing fast and not my whole training plan. We don't need any injuries over here. 

Monday was a long work day so no running I did kinda map out how I wanted this week to go. I knew I was not running my whole scheduled mileage and I thought that three days would work the best. Good, I had a plan. 

Tuesday I headed out after work and knocked out five miles. I did my 4:1 interval and kept myself nice and slow. I felt pretty good despite the weather. When the sun was behind the clouds it's was perfect, but as soon as it came out I felt like my skin was melting off. 

Kelsey had texted me and really wanted to run on Wednesday. I told her I would go with her. Hubs ended up joining us as well. We did five miles in a downpour. I mean drenched. After, we ate pizza. It made things kinda better. 

Thursday, Friday and Saturday I rested. It stormed off and on most of those three days. Saturday was really hot and I was very happy with my decision to not run. My body was also really happy too. Nothing was hurting and I was focused on a long run on Sunday. 

Carrie and I decided we would run between 10-15 miles on Sunday. We did five miles together then picked up some of the Oiselle girls for the second five miles. We got rained on in the first five which requires a full outfit change for the second loop. I was pretty excited with how I felt and very happy to say I was only running 10 miles. 

We had some post run food together and watched some of the men's marathon together. It was a really nice morning. 

Weekly Total: 20 Miles
August Total: 41.3 Miles

Overall, it was a pretty good week. This upcoming week I should be able to hit all four of my runs. I'm feeling much better about running. It doesn't feel much like a struggle. That time off really helped.
