After a 3 week hiatus from the Weekly Wrap due to travel, I am thrilled to back! Having had such a rough summer of running, I was worried about what fall would bring. These past few weeks have brought cooler temps and with them I’ve found my stride again. I’ve fallen back in love with running and have been able to increase my mileage quite a bit. Knock on wood! The picture perfect fall scenery doesn’t hurt either.
Falling In Love With Running Weekly Wrap
Monday- 30 min elliptical + 60 min strength training
Tough wakeup after returning home from San Francisco the night before. Time changes are a killer for me.
Tuesday- 8 mile run
Perfect temps and fabulous company. I was excited to be back with my running group and got in my longest run in while with a tempo finish. Legs a bit tired and sore that night after Monday’s squats.
Wednesday- 1 mile treadmill run + 90 minutes kickboxing and strength training
Funny how just missing a week of strength training makes a huge difference. My arms were so sore the rest of the week.
Thursday-7 mile run
Another brisk fall morning provided the perfect opportunity for a second long run of the week. One of my running partners is training for the Dopey race in January and we are trying to support her by upping our mid week runs. That race really does sound “Dopey”!
Friday-planned rest day
After 3 weeks of traveling on the weekends, I had a ton of errands to do. Got my hair colored and cut and headed out for a Girls night out. My birthday is Tuesday but why wait until then to celebrate? I am all about multiple birthday celebrations.
I cannot remember the last time I took 2 days off back to back. I slept in and made breakfast for my son and I. I hope the extra race day will pay off on Sunday’s 10K race.
Sunday- Veteran’s Day 10K race
Hoping the cooler temps and flat course will be a great combo for me today. Stay tuned! Busy day ahead with our November Soup Club swap today. Check the link to see how to start your own soup club. Today’s soup a Mushroom Lentil Barley.
That’s a wrap! Tell me is this weather having you falling in love with running too?
