Back on track with 50 again this week after two rough weeks in a row. Although we had a couple of wonderfully warm days at the end of last week, the weather is turning. The days are grayer, the windy gustier, and the chills chillier. Any time I’ve tried to train through this season, I’ve become injured or on the verge of injury. Not sure why that is, but I know better now and won’t push it. I’ll race a Turkey Trot or another 5k and then pack it in for the season, and just run when I feel like it through the New Year before going back to base building. I ran with a good friend on Wednesday who asked me what I’m training for. Good question.
