So I feel like I’ve been in a rut the past few weeks. October was a very busy month for us – we travelled 3 weeks and had company our 1 weekend home. We also had company during 1 of the weeks. I’ve been exhausted, but have also had my routine disrupted a lot. Neither of those things helps the running. We were in Florida last weekend and I needed to run 10-12 miles. I ran 4 miles. What the heck?! I’d like to think I’m immune to such circumstances affecting my running – but that is just not realistic! As I tell my team all the time, you take frustrations and use them to motivate and propel you forward next time. Life goes on.
I plan to run semi long on Saturday (6-8 miles) and then run 12 miles on Sunday. The HALF is almost here so that will be my last tough long run until after it.
I’m very non-committal on what will come after the HALF. Perhaps another half in the Spring; or maybe a full marathon. We’ll see how I’m doing when December rolls around.
