Dopey Challenge Training Week 4

Week 4 of Dopey Challenge training is almost over and boy was it a WET one! It has rained on and off several days this week and there's the promise of more rain to come. In years past, I remember our area being in a drought at this point and so far, this has been one of our wettest summers to date!

As I mentioned earlier, it rained a bit this past week and although I didn't let the rain stop me, I did get caught in it once. Whoops.

Saturday's run took me by one of my favorite running spots by the river! I wasn't quite early enough to make the sunrise, but I did get to see a little early morning sun!

What's a long run without the humor of these guys? They crack me up!

I also had the opportunity to sneak in a celebratory run on Monday afternoon! Why were we celebrating? Well, Brayden officially began walking that afternoon! At 15 months old and 5 days, I'd say that's an accomplishment worth celebrating!

This one turned into a run/walk because I had a sore calf and a sore hip. Both were totally random and I decided not to push it. I spent a bit of time on the foam roller after returning home which helped tremendously!

On Wednesday, I did one of my favorite total body workouts from Tone It Up and I was definitely feeling it on Thursday! 

After picking Brayden up from my mom's house on Thursday afternoon, I decided to take him out on a run. I checked the radar/weather and it looked as if I had a pretty decent gap for a 3 mile run so I decided to go for it.

Well, I was wrong. It began to POUR down rain on us when we were a little less than half a mile from home. FAIL.

Thankfully, the Bob stroller kept Brayden completely dry and I was the only one soaked! WIN!

As far as training goes, I do have to say that I love this 3 day a week running training plan and it's totally doable with my schedule! Thank you, Jeff Galloway!

Tomorrow includes another long run, as long as the rain stays away! Have a fabulous weekend!!


  1. Our weather sounds like your the past few days. If we aren't wet from rain, we are wet from humidity!

    1. Yuck!! It's definitely not any fun either way!

  2. I don't mind if it starts raining after I've started my run, but there's no way I'm motivated to run when it's already raining. Treadmill please!

    1. I'm with you there - but I strongly dislike the treadmill! LOL

  3. Thanks Karen! :) Have a great weekend!

  4. That was certainly a downpour you were caught in! My training had some fierce winds this week but I kept thinking 'It might be like this on race day' and just sucked it up and got on with it.

    1. That's a good way to look at it! Way to get it done despite the conditions!

  5. It's rained here every day, it's nuts! Thankfully it's usually in the afternoon so I can run in the morning, but then its so humid. Summer just stinks for running!

    1. It really does - the weather is just so variable. I can't run in the mornings sadly, so I'm relying on the afternoons for mine!
