Half Marathon Training: Week 5

After an awesome trip to San Diego and a PR race, this week was all about recovery.  I had an easy week and really didn’t run too much, which was good since work was crazy busy with local meetings and late dinners.

Monday: 20 minutes Foam Rolling & Stretching – Actual: 20 minutes of Yoga including about 5 min of foam rolling
