Hello, darkness! What a dark, dark week for running for me. Daylight is quickly shortening here in Northeast America so I had quite a few dark runs this week. I also came down with whatever crud is going through our house (FW has had a cough on and off for a few weeks, GM has an ear infection, etc.) so between that and the darkness, the week overall has felt very blah to me. I’ve tried to keep up with my workouts because after running I feel a little more awake and a little less cruddy, but I haven’t been sleeping well, so it has been hard to get out of bed!
Knowing that, here’s how the week looked:
Sunday: No run – instead a gorgeous hilly hike with the family! We made it a few miles with some gorgeous views of an old castle, leaves changing color and … best part, nobody whined during our hike!
Monday: 4 miles in the cold and dark and diastasis recti ab exercises
Tuesday: 4 miles in the cold, wet and dark and diastasis recti ab exercises
Wednesday: 4.02 miles and diastasis recti ab exercises.
Thursday: 4.17 miles and diastsis recti ab exercises.
Friday: 4.06 miles. And this was a strugggggggle! My alarm went off and I inadvertently snoozed, several times. I rarely do that – I was tired! I luckily did make it out of bed, but only had time to go 4 slow miles before starting the day.
Saturday: 3.1 miles run and ~3 mile stroller walk in the afternoon with GM. It was such a gorgeous day and I was so glad to be able to get outside and enjoy it!
Total: 23.35 mi running
Some questions for you:
- Any Halloween plans?
- Do you have any fall traditions?
