13.1 Half Marathon Training: Week 12 Complete and Race Week!

Last week's workouts:
Sun: Yoga (Yoga Sculpt, 30 min)
Mon: 3 2.3 mi easy
Tues: Yoga Unplanned rest day, I visited my baby nephew instead. Worth skipping a workout!
Wed: 3 2.76 mi easy + Power Yoga 4, 40 min
Thurs: 2 mi intervals 3.1 mi easy + strength training
Fri: Rest or yoga (Yoga for Runners, 25 min)
Sat: 10 mi easy

I was not really looking forward to Saturday's run by myself. This was one of the few times I felt like I needed a distraction from the distance and wished I had a buddy. But I got it done with about a 10:48 pace which I was happy with.

This Saturday is the 13.1 race! I have been thinking about this race and the White Rock half 6 weeks later. Originally, I was going to try to PR at 13.1 and take White Rock a little easier. However, I am not feeling as prepared for 13.1 as I had hoped so I think I am going to treat this race more like a training run and try to PR at White Rock instead. I think that will be a better plan for me this time.

I am still looking forward to it; the course looks great and I am looking forward to running through downtown and uptown neighborhoods!

This week's plans:
Sun 10/16: Power Yoga (found this on Exercise TV, 44 min)
Mon: 10/17: 3 mi easy + Power yoga class
Tues 10/18: Rest or easy yoga
Wed: 3 mi easy
Thurs: 2 mi easy + strength training
Fri: Rest or easy yoga
Sat: Race Day!
