Salty’s Training Log – 12.4.16

Last I left you, I was enjoying some planned down-time. After my Thanksgiving Day 5k I planned four days off, which meant I was back running on Tuesday.ย I planned for no workouts, just a few days of easy miles, which was perfect because just as I returned to running I got socked with a nasty cold. All is well though. I started liquid iron and with the rest, I’m already feeling energized. Hopefully, I’ll be back to full-throttle within a few weeks!

I took this after my run yesterday to note my pink cheeks from the frosty winds. Not sure what's up with my face.

Mon: off

Tue: 8 easy on trails

Wed: 7 easy on trails with Jasmine

Thu: off. So sick. Boo.

Fri: 7 with my youngest in the stroller. Took a little adventure detour on some bumpy trails to see the chickadees. She loved it!

Sat: off. Spent the day venturing out to get a balled Christmas tree (the kind you can plant after Christmas)ย and volunteering at my kids’ school.

Sun: 8 easy on the roads in the afternoon. Chilly, but nice!

Total: 30

Salty Running boss and mother of 3 little ones with PRs of 3:10:15 (26.2), 1:25:59 (13.1) and 18:15 (5k). I love to write about running culture, mental training, and fitting in a serious running habit with the rest of a busy life.

  1. I’ve never heard of a plantable Christmas tree! Do you have a special stand/pot that it goes in while in the house?

  2. We always had the balled root trees if we had a live tree. My parents’ property was lined with them for a long time (some of them have since died and had to be cut down). Best kind of live tree!
