Hi friends! I’ve been quite the busy bee, getting ready for my family to arrive, only a few hours to go. The lasagna I made on Sunday is in the oven. I can’t wait!
Last week I did about 16 miles total, my longest run was 3.62 miles, and my longest workout was 6 miles. Fun times.
I attempted to do two of my workouts (the walk/run/walk ones) on the treadmill, and I was bored stilly! I didn’t finish all the walking I was supposed to do, instead I broke it up, and made sure to walk outside more that day.
My verdict on treadmills is NO. I hate them. Unless I have a flatscreen in front of my face playing whatever I feel like, I really don’t see myself ever being OK on the treadmill. And that’s OK with me. I am just going to play this winter by ear, and just do what I can to plan my runs outdoors. Husband: get me this!! (click for source)
All in all, I feel great about my mileage last week, but I am starting to feel apprehensive about the number of miles I have to do. If I think, FIVE miles, I start to feel overwhelmed. But I just keep telling myself to trust the plan, and follow it closely, and I will be ready.
It’s the first day of winter! Do you change up your routine for the various seasons?
