When It’s 70 Degrees in November

I don’t know about you – but I feel like after all the events of this week, I’ve aged several years. Was it really only a week since my last update? So much has happened in the world and it has been a rollercoaster of emotions!

Thankfully, we had some unexpected reallllllly nice weather this week. It was in the 60s and 70s, which meant I got in some extra outdoor runs and NO treadmill runs at all! I also was able to get in two stroller runs, which seemed harder than usual, but was a nice way to spend some one-on-one time with FW while getting in 6ish miles each time.

Here’s a look at how this week went. I got in 40 miles of running, more than 10 of walking and I hit day 198 of my running streak!

Some highlights:

I had off work on Tuesday for Election Day! We’ve never had the day off before, and I still had some work to do, but I enjoyed having the day to get caught up on some things, as well as stay home with the kids while B voted (I voted early by ballot drop off). Since I got to wake up a little later than usual, FW and I were able to get in a run while LM slept. It was great to run while it was light out and make it to my goal of 6 stroller miles.

The sunrises and trees this week were also so gorgeous this week. I had to stop and take it in some days. It just took my breath away.

Saturday we got in another stroller run! This time, we ran to our nearby bagel shop and picked up some breakfast while LM and B slept in.

Saturday was also so gorgeous – 70 degrees! – that we went for a walk in the Cultural Gardens. The leaves were in full color and it was so nice to get outside. While we were headed out, we also got the news about Biden and Harris and we were ecstatic!

Some questions for you:

  • Did you get some seasonably warm weather near you?
  • Do you count walks and runs in your weekly mileage?

I’m linking up with Deborah and Kim for the Weekly Run Down.

  1. After a frigid Monday we had great weather — although it was still pretty chilly for my early morning runs. Yesterday I was having lunch outside with a friend, and between the weather and the breaking news, the atmosphere was so jubilant!

    Great week for you — love your bagel run — that’s one advantage of running with a stroller!

  2. Crazy wonderful weather here too. I don’t track walking much unless I’m in a Runbet. I do log what my fitbit shows, but most of that is incidental
    Yay bagel runs and congrats on 198!

  3. I think the Midwest really scored on weather this week 😉 I didn’t used to track my walking miles until my surgery (2017) and walking was all I had for a few months. I usually keep it separate from running, but do combine the miles for different challenges (that allow it).

  5. We had a few pretty days in the 50s, but we are back to 80s. Because Florida.

    Right now, I am counting walks in my mileage. They have been a big portion of my recovery, so they should be represented (or at least that’s how I’m justifying it).
