Clearly, I’m a little behind posting last weeks mileage report. I feel like I’m behind on a ton of things. Ha! But for a good reason.
I blew off my run Sunday morning. That is not typically like me, especially with a race coming up, but I stayed up late to welcome my daughter to California who is visiting us for a few weeks. An extra rest day never hurt anyone and I feel like the timing was actually really good as I’ve been plagued with prolonged psoas discomfort. (It does seem to be easing up, thankfully!)
The ultimate result of taking Sunday off is that I felt the need to rearranged my schedule a little bit this week and am targeting some solid workouts. So far, so good. For the third straight week, I’ve attended the 5:30 AM November Project workout on Wednesday mornings and I’ve had a couple of good runs that are building up to even better runs! This upcoming weekend will be my last opportunity to get in some time in on the trails so I’ve got to make them count!
Life is good. It’s so nice to have my family under one (albeit cramped) roof. I’m looking forward to the quickly approaching holidays and time with our extended families. I’m really excited about future training, races, and various related activities. I feel healthy, strong, and just about fully recovered from my last marathon, three weeks ago. I’ve got a lot of irons in the fire that have me stoked on future possibilities. Woo!
