Only two runs this week, but my busiest month is almost over!
I didn’t get to run this week until Wednesday morning. I got up bright and early and headed out at sunrise for 3.5 miles. It was cold, and I felt stiff. I walked mostly on the uphills but pushed through to finish the mileage.
However, then I headed out to go to North Carolina for the weekend. I did manage to get in my six mile long run while I was in the mountains, but I was in the mountains. So I walked all the uphills because, let’s face it, running up some 15% grade half mile long hills would have destroyed the chance of actually finishing six miles. I actually ran about 6.5 miles, since I did about 0.35 before I decided it was too warm for long sleeves and went to change before doing another 6.15 miles.
In other news, it looks like I have one final 5k this year on the horizon. My company has decided to race the Mo Run on my birthday, so I’m going to push my recovery week to that week and do the 8 mile long run the week before, so I don’t have to worry about a race and a long run and a party all on the same weekend.
