BCHM Training: Week 12 & Race Pics

Yes, the race is over, but I thought I'd still do a training recap and share more photos. Last week was a taper week. Total weekly mileage was 19.2.

60 minutes Yin Yoga, spine series

Medium pace run: 4 miles, 45 minutes, 11:09 pace


Pace run: 2 miles, 22 minutes, 10:53 pace

Buffalo Creek Half Marathon (See race recap if you missed it.) Here are some more photos taken by the awesome volunteers.
My favorite picture of me in the race.

A little blurry, but all smiles!

After the race I unfortunately had no time for an ice bath, yoga, or even putting my legs up against the wall for a few minutes because I had to shower and get ready to drive an hour to help prep for and attend my family's Halloween party (it is their big thing that they plan a year in advance...will post photos soon!). I was, however, absolutely starving and proceeded to pig out the entire day and night. I don't feel very guilty though. :-)

Yoga for Runners
3 mile hike

I woke up with sore legs, but otherwise I felt great. I did some recovery yoga. Because it was a nice day, I wanted to go hiking with Django somewhere, so we went to Raccoon Creek State Park. I didn't think much of the 5-mile trail I suggested we hike, since that distance is pretty routine for us. However, about 1.5 miles in, I realized how tired my body was, and I knew I'd never make it the whole way. So we cut the hike short and just turned around. Lesson learned to just rest the day after a strenuous race! I did get some good photos, though.

His coat blends in with the leaves!
This upcoming week will be a recovery week, though I do have a 5K race next Saturday that I'm doing just for fun.

Happy running and working out this week!
