Mace’s training log, 12-2-12

This week was a repeat of the lesson “if you can run, you must run, because tomorrow you might not be able.”

I’d planned to run long on Friday, but I let work get in the way and postponed it to Saturday, which turned out to be a mistake.  Usually, I keep a close eye on the forecast so I can get pleasurably exhausted before bad weather hits, but somehow I missed the slushy snow that began late Friday and continued into Saturday.  No long, fast run for me.    Thankfully, warmer next week, so I can try once again to get my sluggish self back to a 10-something pace before the Christmas-cookie production begins in earnest.

SUNDAY:   5.8,  11:20 pace

MONDAY:   off

TUESDAY:    3 , untimed, with dog


THURSDAY:  2, untimed, with dog

FRIDAY:    off

SATURDAY:   4.6,  11:41

Total:  15.4 miles, 155 pounds.  Miniscule progress, but I’ll take it.

I'm a single mother of four who has been running injury-free for 27 years, astonishingly without ever losing any weight. I'm a writer and editor near Boston, and author of "Honey, Do You Need a Ride? Confessions of a Fat Runner."
