Weekly Roundup 11.20-11.26 & 11.27-12.3

Another 2 weeks has come and gone.  And can you believe it is already December?

Last week got off to a slow start.  My ankle was still not happy after stepping in the pothole so I asked Maddie to tape it on Monday at work.  With holiday hours at the gym and a minor injury, I decided to take the week off from lifting to heal then ease back into running before I get back to work. 

On Wednesday I used the elliptical for what seemed like the longest 30 minutes of my life!  The good news was that my ankle felt fine so on Thursday morning (Thanksgiving morning!) Georgie and I got up and headed to the trails for our own little Turkey Trot before heading to Falmouth.  We explored a little further down the trail then our last time out there totaling just about 3.5 miles!

I worked on Black Friday but left at 2pm for another 3.5 mile run—this time solo.  Saturday I dragged Georgie out for a mile, which she fought the whole way.  I got home and realized her harness had been rubbing under her arms and she had a big open wound.  I also remembered that last year when we were running together she didn’t wear a harness for that reason.  Terrible mother I am!  Anyways, I dropped her off and home and went back out for 7 miles on my own.

This week I ran more and progressed my lifting routine with a series of 3 new workouts from Greg.  I didn’t pack my outdoor running clothes on Monday and smelly man was on the treadmill when I got out of work so I ended up doing my strength training first then went to the treadmill.  By the time I got to my run, I was exhausted.  Now I know why I run first.

I had to work an extra long day on Tuesday so I didn’t get to Run Club again this week.  Boo.  Wednesday was beautiful weather day and I really wanted to run outside so I put my running clothes on under my work clothes when I went home for lunch so I could have a quick turnaround after work.  I got out at 4 and the sun set at 4:14.  Ugh.  I ran the half mile loop at work around and around and around for another 3 miles.

I was not in the mood to run on Friday and I put it off most of the day.  G joined me for a mile then ran 3 on my own.  That night I made a solo trip to the gym and had the place to myself.  Woo hoo Friday night!

My 8 mile long run was scheduled for Saturday and I went back and forth where to run.  I wanted to go to Falmouth but our Cape Cod Rehab Christmas Party was that night and I didn’t want to rush or waste time driving anywhere.  So I ventured out of my neighborhood, crossed busy Route 28 and ran the streets of Cotuit.  It was my first time long running that direction and I loved it.  Pretty views and I passed a lot of people and they were all so friendly.  A little girl in a stroller yelled to her mom, “That runner is fast!”
