Diva Half In Training – Week 11&12

Happy Wednesday!!  There has been a lot going on this past week.  Run…Fun..Run!!!

Tuesday was my big workout day last week.  Started a new Kettlebell routine in class and stayed afterwards for run club.  We ran over a bridge for about a 1.5 mile run.  It didn’t do too bad but I am defiantly not a hill climber.   IMG_20160330_221445

I’m the girl in the black Nike cap on the right in the picture above.

I rested for the rest of the week because I knew we were going to down to the beach for the weekend and I wanted to try to get my 10 miles in on Saturday.   So Saturday came and it looked really cloudy and I knew it was supposed to rain but the forecast said not until around 3 PM.   So I started my run around 10:00 AM.    It was wonderful weather to go for a long run, not to hot and a light drizzle rain here and there.  My husband passed me in his truck on mile 3 and we started texting back and forth what the weather was looking like up ahead.   I made it almost to my half way point and it stared to down pour.   I quickly called my husband to the rescue.    Oh well I’ll have to try it again this weekend.  I do realize if it is down pouring at the Diva race I will have to continue.

Saturday afternoon we went to a Local Brew Local Groove event that our friend and his band was playing at the House of Blues.   We had a great time with friends!

We didn’t stay out to late because we knew we had to get up early to head back home for Easter at my Dad’s house.  Since we were at the beach and did not have to cook anything we really didn’t have the traditional Easter meal we usually do.  Not even one single egg to eat, and this did kind of disappoint me.   My little nephew was there so we did have a little egg hunt and an Easter Piñata for him to hit.

So what has been going on this week.  I have only 4 ½ weeks left before the Diva Half Marathon.    I did run/walk 4 miles’ yesterday and I will try to continue with the required miles this week.  I booked my room for the Diva Half Marathon weekend today.  We could have stayed with our friend Kevin but I know I will need my rest the night before the race and I would not be able to do that at his house.  The hotel we are staying at is really nice they have a down stairs beach bar and a night club.

So now to some disappointing race news.  Yesterday, March 29th was the sign up for runDisney’s Wine and Dine.  I was unable to obtain a race entry for the 10K race and my family was able to (Sister and Niece.)  I have been trying to look at other ways I can get a race entry at this point.   That weekend also happens to be my 10th year wedding anniversary.  I have wanted to share Disney with my husband for so long and I think this would be so perfect.    I will keep you updated if I am able to obtain a race entry.

So my training for the rest of the week looks like this.

Thursday – 5 Miles

Saturday – 5 Miles

Sunday – 10 Miles (I’m behind it’s supposed to be 12 miles)

 

HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!
