Training in San Francisco – Week 13 Wrap Up

I just got home a couple of hours ago from vacationing in San Francisco with my wife. It was an awesome trip! More on the trip will come in future posts. However, I did want to give a recap of my week 13 training for the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend. Only 5 weeks to go!

I knew that this would be a week where workouts were missed. After all, Wednesday and Sunday are typical gym workout days and I was up in San Francisco for those days. However, I did manage to get 3 training runs in this week. The first was the night before flying up to San Francisco and 2 more while there. Let me tell you, those runs were hard, but cool at the same time. I’m going to write more tomorrow on what it was like running in San Francisco. However, for today, let’s just say the hills were brutal. However, running by the bay was inspiring.1000875_10201420631215864_1675675634_n

See what I mean? Who wouldn’t love running with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background? Getting there and getting back required going through real hills. However, once to the bottom, absolutely inspiring. Also, it was totally cool to run around so many runners. This part of the bay had a great running and cycling path. On Thursday, I was supposed to run 3 miles and ended up running 4.5. I also ran 4.2 miles on Sunday.

Here’s what I did this week…

Monday – Rest Day

Tuesday – Ran 3.10 miles in Pasadena

Wednesday – Travel Day to San Francisco!

Thursday – Ran 4.50 miles in San Francisco!

Friday – No running, lots of walking

Saturday – No running, walked from Pier 39 to the Golden Gate Bridge…not sure exactly how far that was, but it took a couple of hours

Sunday – Ran 4.2 miles in San Francisco!

My trip to the bay included catching the Oakland A’s play the Angels, the SF Giants play the Cubs, a tour of AT&T Ball Park, trips to the California Science Academy in Golden Gate Park, the Walt Disney Family Museum and a bus tour of places they filmed movies and television shows in San Francisco. I took over 600 pictures while I was up North. So, my blogs on this trip will likely include links to flickr uploads. I think that around 300 of those pics were from the Walt Disney Family Museum.
