Rock and Brew – Week 11 Wrap-up / Week 12 Preview

We offset again due to Halloween which I have to say was a total let down.  What a waste of a night, kids just blew past our street and we even had good candy.  Maybe I’ll just be a curmudgeon next year and not even turn the light on!  Anyway, we have run a lot since the last post… so hear we go!
WEEK 11 DAY 4 – 5 MILES (..a day early again)
5 Miles on the treadmill is actually getting a lot easier than I thought though I got stuck watching the end credits of a TV show because I didn’t push myself hard enough… I guess that’ll teach me!  The gazelle is unstoppable on long distances.  I don’t think I’ll ever be able to keep up with her if she’s spooked by a lion while we’re running…

WEEK 11 DAY 6 – 6 MILES / ROCK & BREW
RockAndBrewFinish
We had an absolute blast at the Rock and Brew 5K and will definitely consider doing more events with beer tastings at the end!  The course was a lot tougher than we had anticipated as we had to run through a grass field at one point that forced you to slow down a lot and be sure of your footing but the rock music and beer was a blast.  We both posted our best 5K times and I only finished 1 second behind the gazellle!

WEEK 12 DAY 2 – 5 MILES
I was actually preparing myself for 6 miles today on my way home when I realized it was only 5… I then proceeded to laugh as I thought “Only 5 miles” not “Oh my dear god 5 miles”.  I’m really enjoying running on a consistent basis, more so after I have run though.  5 Miles went great today.
