A Little Bit of Everything

First, my training recap for last week:
  • Monday, Oct. 27th: 3 miles (a.m.), 3.6 miles - hill (p.m.)
  • Tuesday, Oct. 28th: 3 miles (a.m.), 5.1 miles - track (p.m.)
  • Thursday, Oct. 30th: 3 miles
  • Friday, Oct. 31st: 3 miles
  • Saturday: Nov. 1st: 6 miles

Total weekly miles: 26.7. Total miles for the month of October: 116.6. Happy to be over 100 again this month. Woefully missing from the month of October? Long runs. I ran one 11 miler early in the month, and haven't seen anything over six miles since then. I really need to get my act together. I'd like to have a good base of semi-long runs (8-10 milers) before I start marathon training at the end of January. Of course, now with hunting season starting this weekend, I will be single parent for a while, so that will make things difficult.

This morning's three miler was the first in several weeks that did not require a headlight! It was nice to run in the sunlight, and we are having some unseasonably warm weather here that I am loving. Might have to sneak out of work a little early tonight and get another run in with Sophie.

I'm thinking about rescheduling my hair appointment (set for tomorrow evening) so I can run at the track. My hair looks like crap, but I really want to get my Tuesday speed work in while the weather holds out. I can handle the dark roots and the snaggly, ratty ends for a few more weeks.

I have the same problem. I have difficulty fitting in the longer runs. It's definitely a time thing. I need to get my act in gear as well.
Good job on your runs for the week!

Imagine, choosing a track workout over a hair appointment! :D

Congrats on your 100+ month!

I have been putting off getting my haircut. I need it cut badly.

Great job on the runs. Hope the nice weather sticks around for you.

Nice job on the mileage! Glad you had some good weather...Gosh, I am missing summer already! Postponing the hair appointment for a run...that sounds about right!
