When I started this series of recaps week 16 seemed so far away. Now it’s here and week 18 is closing in on me fast!
Some observations from the last 16 weeks:
- Need a better nutrition plan next time. (did I just type that????)
- Will be spending December and January getting these 4-5 pounds off.
- Need to make more room/time for cross training and ab work. It was done but only once a week.
Training this week:
Sunday: 20 miles, recap here
Monday: Rest day
Tuesday: 5 miles, 9:49 pace
Wednesday: 4 miles, 10:06 pace
Thursday: 5 miles, 9:57 pace
Friday: Rest day
Saturday: 10 miles, 9:31 pace
Today’s weather was 37 (felt like 28), drizzly and a little windy. It was very hard to get out the door but once I got going it was great. Almost perfect temps, without the wind. I also purchased hand warmers last night and those were a life saver.
So, I took a peek at the elevation for the Dallas Marathon….
Looks fun, right? That’s why I hill train, every single week!
This was a good running week for me. I didn’t make it to the gym, but now that I’m running less the next two weeks, hopefully I can get there a few more times.
I’m excited for Thanksgiving Day, pumpkin pie is my favorite! Ally and I are running our local Turkey Trot that morning.
Anyone go out of town for Thanksgiving?
What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food?
Who’s running a Turkey Trot?
