I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t love fall. Pumpkin spice lattes? Meh. Boots and jeans and sweaters? I’ll pass for shorts and a t-shirt any day. But fall running? Okay, you got me there – fall running is quite possibly the best running there is.
Why? The weather’s not too hot, it’s not too dark out, the scenery is most often pretty and the weather’s perfect for working on your speed.
Which may be why this week was such a good week in terms of running!
I ran the farthest I have since LM was born! 6.22 miles to be exact. AND I felt pretty good the entire time. I was also happy with my pace – I haven’t been consistently at 9 something minute/miles but to do it for the whole 10K? I finished feeling so good!
Here’s how the week worked out:
One stroller run, one treadmill run (there were thunderstorms) and mostly outdoors. I am getting so spoiled being able to run outside- I am NOT looking forward to the cold and icy winter that is coming!
Some questions for you:
- What is your favorite running season? Least favorite?
- Will you run outside if there are thunderstorms?
