Last Week’s Portland Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon Training Workouts Recap and Weekend Update (5/11-5/17)

It was race week and I still somewhat followed the Nike Coach from the Nike Running App. The pic below shows what was scheduled.Here’s what I did:

Monday – Got an early morning 4 miles in.
Tuesday – Just got my #plankaday in, which I’ve been mostly posting on Twitter.

Wednesday – Another early morning run, 5 miles. Thursday – Got 4 miles done while the kiddo was in Preschool.  Friday – Running rest day. #Plankaday done.

Saturday – 2 miles on the treadmill.Now for the weekend update. Nothing too exciting except for going to the Portland Rock’n’Roll Expo on Saturday and then the race on Sunday.

On Saturday, the kiddos and I took the Max train to the Oregon Convention Center, where the Portland Rock’n’Roll Expo was held. It’s nice to take the Max train since the Convention Center is right on the Max train line. It’s nice and easy for me since we live close to the Max and I don’t have to worry about finding parking and whatnot. The kiddos enjoy taking the train too.The Portland Rock’n’Roll Expo was decent sized, not huge but still had many big vendors. Packet/Bib pickup was easy. Here’s a pic of the shirt and my bib:

Here I am by the countdown sign. My 7 year old posing with the runners.  

I thought the mirrors in the Brooks Merchandise area were amusing. They had sayings on them like the one below.
There also was a Brooks photo booth that was fun. You could pick out the signs to hold. IMG_5154
After the Brooks Merchandise area was the rest of the vendors. Here was the entrance to them.Here’s a fun pic we did at the Toyota booth.IMG_5229

The only thing I bought was nuun. I love the fruit punch and watermelon flavors. On Sunday was the race. Here’s my finisher’s medal. Race recap coming soon.        How did your weekend go? Hope you have a great week ahead!

  1. I hope you had a great race! Love these pictures of you and the kiddos at the expo; Brooks always seems to have the coolest signs, picture-taking places, etc. I love the “This is What a Runner Looks Like” mirror – what a cool idea! Thanks so much for linking up with the blog!
