Good morning from Bethlehem, PA!
I am just finishing up my coffee and then it’s time to head to the start of the half marathon.
If you haven’t been paying attention, I am at the Runner’s World Half & Festival to run the Hat Trick (5k, 10k, and half).
I have so much to tell you about including yesterday’s races, what I have been eating, what I saw/bought at the Expo as well as the wonderful Runner’s World seminars I had the opportunity to attend.
I hope you don’t mind waiting for all the fun details until I get back home though; I need some time to digest it all before discussing in coherent sentences.
In the meantime, let’s take a really quick look at this past week’s workouts. I wouldn’t exactly call this a taper week since I didn’t follow my usual taper plans but I did ease up a little bit more than the normal.
30 Minutes Elliptical & Pure Barre DVD
I didn’t know how many miles I wanted to run but I kept the pace easy and ended at 6.14 because I was on the phone and when I hung up with my friend, I saw I was over six miles and decided it was time to stop for tapering purposes.
Pure Barre DVD & 5.55 Miles
I didn’t even mean to stop at all 5’s. I just stopped at my front door.
I missed the three-mile run at the end of the Meet and Tweet so Thursday became a rest day instead of Friday as I had loosely planned in my head.
3 Easy Miles & Part of Pure Barre DVD
I only did certain sections of the Pure Barre DVD (warm up, core work and stretching) before packing up and hitting the road.
5K and 10K!
Recap to come soon!
Heading to the half shortly! Talk to you tomorrow!
There’s still time to enter the #NYTough P&G Product Giveaway! Winner will be announced in Tuesday’s post!
Best thing you ate all weekend?
Anyone else running races this weekend? How did they go?
