What a fun week of running! This is seriously the best time of year to run, I can’t get enough. This week was pretty much overcome with Turkey Trots, well at least the weekend was, so a week of trotting it is!
I was pretty much able to hit all my base building goals this week or at least close enough! Almost 50 miles, one double day, one trail run, one double digit run. Success!
Thank you Daily Mile
Mondays are for rest in my book. I have tried to make Mondays a run day (and do if I have other commitments throughout the week), but most of the time I find that it’s just too hard for me to get up and get a run in on Mondays. Ever since I have figured that out and accepted it, my schedule has gone quite nicely!
am: 8 mile run
pm: 4 mile run
Morning run with my work friends! We took our hillier route and I was a little tired in parts, but my legs warmed up as they went like always.

I actually ran alone! I have been running with friends so much lately, that it was actually a little strange to run completely on my own. It was nice to have a little alone time and just zone out. I will admit it was a little harder getting out the door!

This week I am hoping to up the trail running a bit, which shouldn’t be too hard with a long weekend. Just a couple more weeks until the training plan comes out!
