Can I still call this a training log, even though at this moment, I’m not in training for a race? I suppose it’s easier than calling it “Pumpkin’s log of halfhearted attempts at staying in running shape while she tries not to gain her body weight in comfort foods and Halloween candy.”
Happily back at Monday morning spin class, taught by my favorite instructor.

Hill Training Tuesday. If you’ve ever wondered whether: A) is it boring to run up and down the same parking ramp every single Tuesday? and B) is it a hard workout? The answer is YES.

Husband was out of town, so I got solo parent duty. No formal exercise happened, other than an exercise in keeping my patience. I did manage to squeeze in a one mile run’s worth of laps around my 2nd grader’s school playground track while my children burned off their demons, but that’s it! This may actually be the first weekend in many months that did not include a long run, long bike ride, or both. No wonder I’m feeling edgy tonight!
