Week in Review 4/11 - 4/17 (Marathon Training)

Just 2 weeks to go until The Colorado Marathon! That means it is TAPER TIME! AKA, not running 60 miles per week, which is heavenly if I do say so myself...

Total Miles Ran: 44.73 running only, 49.73 including a hike!

Easy 8
Actual: 8 trail miles at Polluck Bench with Loki and the Striders run club. I hadn't done this trail yet and it was phenomenal! I definitely want to get to the Monday night group runs more often!

Rest or Xtrain
Actual: Rest

Easy 7
Actual: 7.12, 10:54 pace in the Colorado National Monument. Ran up Serpents Trail (just under 2 miles one-way), then hopped onto the road and kept going up until my turn around point. My calves did not like me on this one with over 1100' of elevation gain!

Easy 6
Actual: 6.32 at the Lunch Loops with Loki. 11:37 pace.

Easy 10
Actual: 10.17 early morning miles. We were headed to Salt Lake after work, so I had to get up nice and early to do this before work. 

13.1 - Salt Lake City Half Marathon. Easy with last 4 @ 8:18 pace.
Actual: Ran easy with last 4 @ 8:18, 8:13, 8:12, 7:47. I'm not going to lie, I had a blast passing a bunch of people as I got faster at the end! I'm usually the one slowing down at the end, so this was fun.

Easy 5
Actual: Hiked 5 miles to the Fifth Water Hot Springs near Spanish Fork, Utah before we headed back home!

Flattop Mountain & Hallett Peak

I've been wanting to hike to the top of Hallett Peak ever since I found out it was the gorgeous mountain towering above Dream and Emera...
