It’s once again time for the Weekly Wrap! I’m linking up with Wendy over at Taking the Long way Home and Holly at HoHo Runs for this week’s wrap-up. I got to meet both of them in person this weekend for RnRChicago and it truly was an epic weekend! My recap of the race is coming soon!
Admittedly, I don’t have much to report for the past week in terms of workouts, as my California racecation continued through Wednesday and there was more wine tasting than there was workouts and runs.
This is how my week went:
Monday: Rest day, having just run the Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon the day before. We left Napa and headed to our hotel in Santa Rosa. We enjoyed a complimentary tasting and wine tool museum tour (who knew there was such a thing?) at Buena Vista Winery, then headed up to Healdsburg to visit friends at their beautiful vineyard.
Tuesday: A casual walk across the Golden Gate Bridge and back, totaling just over 3 miles. It was overcast and very windy. I would have love to run across but the walk did wonders for stretching out my tight legs. We headed back to San Mateo where we had an amazing dinner and more great wine at my friend’s home.
Wednesday: Travel day. We had a lazy morning enjoying coffee on my friend’s patio, then headed to SFO for our flight home.
Thursday: 1.25 mile treadmill run and 30-minute strength training.
Friday: Back to reality. 12 hour work day.
Saturday: Rest day and meet-up with a number of running bloggers. Such a fun day!
Sunday: 13.1 mile run for RnR Chicago. It basically poured the entire time. Did I mention I’ve never run in the rain? More on that in the recap later this week!
It’s been a good week for me. A little bit of running, and a lotta bit of friends! The weather in wine country was absolutely beautiful and was a nice break from Chicago’s heat and humidity.
