I was tapering last week for the Oregon Half Marathon. It was a good week. I did all the scheduled runs on the Asics App training schedule. I just added one day of PiYo.
On Monday, I did PiYo Drench. I was dripping sweat during this workout. It’s a great workout but the longest PiYo workout in the set.
On Tuesday, I ran five miles. It was a build up run where I was supposed to build up to a faster speed. I did and ran all negative splits. It was a great run!
On Wednesday, I was planning to do some PiYo but my kiddo didn’t want me to workout for some reason. I took that as a sign. I was supposed to be resting anyway, according to my half marathon training schedule.
On Thursday, I jogged three miles.
Friday was a rest day, the day before the Oregon Half Marathon. I was nervous. Who isn’t nervous before a race? I could hardly sleep and had to wake up really early because I was carpooling and the race was located about an hour away.
Saturday was race day. It was a great day for a PR! 🙂 You can read about my experience at the Oregon Half Marathon HERE.
Sunday was rest day!
How did your week go?

You ran the race at a good place, congrats. My week went okay, I need to do more strength training. I have been lazy these day. #wowlinkup
