Pumpkin here! This past week was one in which I was SUPER grateful that I’m not actually IN training right now for a specific race. Sometimes fun and frivolity have to trump the almighty run, so this week was a bit light on the run-front. In spite of the busyness of the week, I managed to get at least a little activity in most days.
Spinning class 47 minutes, 20 miles, avg HR around 145
A quick hill workout on the parking ramp today.
3.38 miles, 10:13 pace
My friend Julie and I decided to meet for our run at 4:30am. This required me to set my alarm for 3:55am. That should NOT be a thing.
5.1 miles, 10:00 pace
Elliptical while catching up on TV
53 minutes, 5.27 miles
It ended up being colder than I thought it was going to be this morning. My running partner and I were feeling less than thrilled about digging out warmer clothes for our 6am run, so we ended up on the treadmills at the Y instead of an outdoor run. Sad discovery that my iPad was dead upon getting on the ‘mill. Noooo!
4.14 miles, 9:17 pace
Out of town with the hubby to celebrate our 10th anniversary. I had planned on doing a run this morning as our hotel was RIGHT across the street from a beautiful river path in St Paul, MN. Somehow hotels have a way of making you just want to lounge around and sleep in, though. It felt amazing to relax, but I have to say I was kind of kicking myself all morning that I didn’t take advantage of the different scenery. I later learned that there was even a 5k/10k race literally BLOCKS from my hotel, and one of my oldest friends was even running it! Like I said though, this week was more about fun and less about running. The husband and I enjoyed the beautiful fall morning with a walk to a great breakfast place and strolled by the river. We finished the day of celebration with a Minnesota Vikings game. Vikings won, in case you care. Football is one of the best things of my life.
