Weekly Run Down: Time Change

I’m one of those people who likes “fall back.” I’m an early riser, and I don’t mind it being light in the mornings. I like the fact that my body thinks it’s later than it is, which makes a 4:30 a.m. wakeup alarm that much easier. And I don’t mind it getting dark at night. I have 3 kids, and we don’t spend much time outside after 7:30 p.m. anyway!

So, the time change helped me this week. It wasn’t quite light when I went for runs in the early mornings, but it was nice to feel almost rested in the mornings when I woke up — or at least as rested as one can be with a 3-month-old nursing baby.

Sunday:  4.41 miles run plus 2+ miles hiking with the family in the woods. I was overdressed — it ended up being in the 60s that day!

Monday: 4.25 mile stroller run with LM on another beautiful fall day. It was my last morning home with LM before heading back to work and I wanted to take her out for a few miles – I’m so glad I did. She is a great running buddy!


Tuesday:  3.73 miles  

Wednesday:  3.35 miles  – it was GM’s first stroller run! B ran with me and pushed the stroller the whole way and did great. I hadn’t run with my husband since our getaway in April, and it was a perfect fall morning to get out there.

Thursday:  4.42 miles plus a nice stroller walk with GM.

Friday:  3.3 miles before a day of meetings. 

Saturday: Off from running- instead I walked a few miles on the treadmill and also got in a walk with the family. What a differnce one week makes – it was COLD! 


TOTAL for the week:  23.46 miles running, plus some walks, stretching and planks  

Questions for you:

  • Are the leaves changing near you or are they mostly fallen already?
  • Do you like the fall time change?

Linking up with Deborah and Kim for the Weekly Run Down.

  1. Our leaves are still looking beautiful & are still holding on despite all the rain and wind. Ugh…not ready for this abrupt change of seasons…

  2. LOL, we could swap the first paragraphs of our posts this week!

    Your little girl is so cute! I love her squinty laugh in the photo your 5 yo took!

    We are in peak fall colors this week – it’s lovely!

  3. Yes, I love the fall time change! I hate turning the clocks ahead in the spring… but that’s not for a long time.
    Your photos are beautiful- I love the fall colors. We don’t get that in Florida!

  4. I love getting the extra hour on the day of. I don’t like the dark evenings. Not at all.

    We don’t get the changes of leaves here. All palm trees and green. All the time. It’s cold, but that’s about it.
