Sassafras’s Training Log – 11.18.12

Well, hello there Salties! I neglected to post a training log last week since there wasn’t much going on – just a big, post-race dose of The Lazy. It was sooo nice and much-needed! As you can see below, I’ve been easing back into the swing of things. I’m in no particular rush to amp up the mileage, so I’m just listening to my body and taking it easy. ย Although, I am actually running not one but two Turkey Trots this coming week – but that’s a story for another day!

Monday – Rest. I thought about running today, but with back-to-back days of yoga, my shoulders said otherwise.

Tuesday – Rest

Wednesday – Rest. When walking to a meeting (okay, to go get coffee!), I could tell that I was ready to go for a run again.

Thursday – 4 miles at 8:34 pace. Woohoo! I didn’t know I had this in me. 28 degrees…. this chilly mornings are going to take some getting used to!

Friday – 15 minute walk.

Saturday – 6 miles at 9:08 pace. I got to run with some of my “Saturday run” peeps and caught up with a friend afterwards over coffee!

Sunday – Yoga class

Total – 10 miles running, 1 hr 15 minutes yoga
