Intentions

With two days left in November, I think it's safe to say that this month will be my lowest running mileage month for 2010. Also probably my least amount of hours of training (of any sort) for the year. With opening the new office (tomorrow!), all of my energy has been directed to work stuff. So on the workOUT stuff, let's just call November a wash.

So December . . . time to get back at it. I need to get a nice little base going because marathon training starts mid-January. Starting this week, I am shooting for running 20 miles per week. Considering I ran 3 miles last week and 6 miles the week before, this will be a good increase. Yikes. I also need to get my swim back on. I've missed the past three weeks. So I need to swim at least Wednesday mornings. Friday mornings too if I feel motivated. I also need to haul my bike in the house and get it on the trainer. And do some strength training.

Time to get off my butt and get sweating!

Whoo hoo! Good luck tomorrow! You are awesome! Leave the workouts behind you, starting your own business is a workout in and of its self! I know this first hand!

Good luck with your opening. How exciting that must be for you. Like you, I've not done much all of November, but unlike you I have no good reason. At least you've channeled your energy into getting your office up and running.

Good luck with the open tomorrow Heather!!

I have had a very slow November....I basically took 3 weeks off. I feel the same way...bring on December and bring on some good training and runs:) Have a great week!

Good luck tomorrow!! I'm pretty sure you can count opening a new business as cross-training.

Good luck tomorrow! I've been injured this month. The only running I've done was the Turkey Day 5K on Thanksgiving morning.

I think it's fair to say that you have a bit much on your plate right now. I'm sure you'll be back to your usual training load soon!

Good luck with the grand opening!

They need to change it to post-Thanksgiving resolutions, instead of New Years. I'm on your same page.
