This week turned out to be a little lower in overall mileage but I made up for it with some good cross-training between the workout with the November Project and my hilly little hike Saturday. (My glutes are still sore from that hike too!)
My hope is to up my mileage a little bit this week since I have some extra time in the mornings. My son is out of school for the holiday so I get a break from the morning prep/drop-off routine, not to mention a long weekend coming up. What better way to fill that space than with some extra miles and added strength training?
I’m eager to dive into training but I really want to focus the next few weeks on building some strength and creating a solid foundation for when I do jump in. That, and create a plan of attack for the Christmas and New Year holidays so I don’t completely derail myself. Then balls to the wall come January!
