Although it was a very busy work week I still got my runs in and feel great about that.
Here is my week in review. Since the temperatures are changing - I am going to start recording the 7AM temp's and tracking them along with my weekly running mileage.
Sun: 7.5 mile run - avg pace: 9:54 - temp 43
Mon: 2 mile walk - temp 36
Tues: 2 mile run - temp 44
Wed: 6 mile run - biked to work - 1.5 hr yoga class - temp 49
Thur: 2 mile walk - temp 54
Fri: 2 mile run - temp 42
Sat: 10 mile run - no garmin - temp 41
Miles RUN - 27.5 Only 273 away from 1,000
The cooler temp's have been a welcome change from the heat and humidity of summer but there is a fine line between cooler and COLD! This morning as I write this post the temp is 34. In January, 34 would be considered pretty nice - but on Oct 3rd - 34 is cold. These first cooler/cold mornings are hard to figure out what to wear. Once winter gets here it is easy . . . but until my body gets adjusted to the cooler temps - it is sooo easy to over dress . . . and there is nothing worse than being too warm after a couple miles.
I bought a new pair of running pants and gloves this week at REI. I also bought a head light. I have always been an early morning runner and have simply run in the dark. But as I get a little older - I like to see the pavement . . . so I am going to be trying it out this week. I will let you all know how I like it.
I am sending out positive thoughts to area runners participating in the Twin Cities and Milwaukee Lakefront Marathons. Julie from Julie's Running Blog, here and a co-worker Mary Anne are running the Twin Cities. And a big shout out to Jamie from Running Diva Mom, here and Chelsea from Early Runner, here who are both running the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon. All 4 of these women were probably questioning their running outfits this morning due to the cool temperatures. Good Luck!
Getting ready to head to church.
Hope you all have a great Sunday - enjoy the Fall temp's and changing leaves.
