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
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!

I hate running in the dark, it is ten times colder. I suppose it is time to begin treadmill running.
Your workouts this week look awesome!
We do have Petzel headlamps so I will try to run outside sometimes in the dark, but after work days will likely be more treadmill.
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.
You should change your blog name to running machine! 🙂
