This week brought back to school and some EARLY mornings for half the week. I now run early enough that I miss the sunrises and probably won’t see them again for some time! I also am on a time crunch and it impacts my running. Most days in the summer if I’m close to a mile or so, I’ll finish the last .2 or so. But this week, I made myself stop at a certain time, regardless of mileage. Maybe as we get back into our routines I’ll feel more comfortable being a minute or two late, but as we figure out our mornings, etc. I’m trying to stick to a strict schedule. Maybe in a few weeks, I’ll feel differently.
Here’s what the week looked like:
Sunday: 3.65 miles near the lakes near my house – and I saw this guy!
Monday: 5.1 miles plus DR exercises – before a day of fun with the kiddos. I took the day off to spend with the big kids before they went back to school. We hit up the Children’s Museum and went out to lunch.
During the run – I saw all these turkeys!
We had a blast at the museum!
Tuesday: 5.1 miles plus DR exercises – last day of sleeping in!
Wednesday: 4.73 miles plus DR exercises – first day of school!
Thursday: 5.02 miles plus DR exercises
Friday: 4.8 miles plus DR exercises
Saturday: 2.27 miles run plus mote than 6 miles of walking
Total: 34.27 mi running
Some questions for you:
- Random — but I just started going to Trader Joe’s since there is one near my office. What’s your favorite thing to buy at TJ’s?
- Does it feel like fall there yet near you?
