Fall Back

Today our clocks went an hour back. This is when as a runner, I feel enclosed by less daylight. With our work hours we will be up when it’s dark and home by dark. The most sun I will see running will be on the weekends. My runs this week that were outdoors were very windy and cold. I don’t think I could ever get fully adjusted to cold running.

For my treadmill runs I’m starting to play with the incline.

Here is how last week went:

S: 7.4 Miles Easy (‘Hood, 1:03:15, 8:33 Pace), 8 Miles Easy Bike (P1, L4, 30:00, 16mph)

M: 4 Miles Easy (Treadmill, 2% Incline, 33:47, 8:27 Pace), 6X100M Strides

T: 4 Miles Easy (Treadmill, 2% Incline, 33:37, 8:25 Pace), Pushups

W: 4 Miles Easy (Gym Treadmill, 2% Incline, 33:44, 8:26 Pace), Upperbody Strengthening

Th: Rest

F: 8.5 Miles Easy (‘Hood, 1:10:47, 8:20 Pace)

Sa: 4 Miles Easy (‘Hood, 33:13, 8:19 Pace)

Total: 31.9 Miles

Drew stayed with us and we traveled about an hour away to run a 10K this morning. Race report up next!

  1. I don’t have a headlamp or a treadmill! I just took my sunglass case out of my work bag and sadly proclaimed to my hubs, “well I don’t need those anymore because I won’t see the sun!”

    Running in the dark isn’t fun at all.
