I started the week with a good 20 miler and ended it with the Spooktacular 5k in which I ran as a football player in full football gear. That was an adventure! Fun, hilarious, and tough!
Sunday, Oct 23 - rest
Monday, Oct 24 - 20 morning miles, 9:15 pace. I wrote about it here.
Tuesday, Oct 25 - 4.5 afternoon miles, 8:45 pace. Legs were a tad sore but...it was such a gorgeous afternoon I just couldn't help myself.
Wednesday, Oct 26 - 6 afternoon miles around 8:50 pace. I stopped my watch to help a little kid catch his dog (who was after me) and forgot to restart it, but the 5.5 I recorded were around 8:50 pace.
Thursday, Oct 27 - rain rain rain and pajamas on the couch.
Friday, Oct 28 - 5.6 afternoon miles. I did 1 mile on the treadmill in the gym before deciding anything was better than that and heading outside. I ran 4.6 outside at 8:36 pace. It was cold and misty, but good and the color of the trees right now is amazing!
Saturday, Oct 29 - 3.1 miles in the Spooktacular 5k in 26:16 which is 8:27 pace. Let me just say that running in full football gear is TOUGH! But I had a blast with Shannon and Julie dressed as my fellow teammates and my mom dressed as our coach.
Total for the week - 39.2
Sometimes you've just gotta choose fun over...well...anything else. Happy Halloween, everyone!
