Last week was truly a transition week as I returned to my regular running schedule, began to carefully increase my mileage while keeping the pace easy, and got out on trail for two runs over the weekend. I also did one 30 minute yoga session (on my own), attended a November Project workout, and did a couple of strength training sessions.

I was challenged by some lingering psoas discomfort on my right side but besides that, I’m feeling pretty decent. The two trail runs over the weekend were both really hilly so I’m glad I was feeling good enough to tackle them.

This week will be similar, structure wise, though I’ll up the mileage a tiny bit and hopefully add some form of a speed workout in somewhere. As I mentioned in a post or two back, I’m really feeling the need to incorporate more of both yoga/stretching and strength training. The strength training comes so much easier.

Enjoy the final week of October! (I can’t believe we are a week away from November already!!)
