Monday 11/17: 4.5 miles after school w/coach and athlete on HRT. Cold and rainy conditions, but I felt great out there. I'm getting in a little groove where I'm excited for every run.
Tuesday: 11/18: 4 in pm - Walmart N Back. I thought I wouldn't be able to run today, but our staff meeting turned out to be a staff appreciation celebration with food and drinks - sweet! The weather was blustery with temps around 29 degrees. I warmed up quickly and enjoyed myself.
Wednesday: 11/19: 3 w/ athletes. Three runners showed today. It was cold but not as windy as yesterday. Nice and easy.
Thursday: 11/20: 1 around school. I didn't think I would be able to run today, but when I got home both babies were napping. I didn't get very far because I ran into two students who were just finishing their runs. 1 > 0 !
Friday: 11/21: 3 same route as Wednesday. I was about 2 minutes faster than Wednesday. Felt decent.
Saturday: 11/22: 6 around town w/30 minute tempo. Felt great today - nice and cold, 20 degrees. The river was iced over in the setbacks. After my tempo I ran a mile cool down on the rail trail out on the land bridge portion. I ran up on a forky buck that was walking really slowly. I got to within 40 yards when I noticed he was injured with blood running down his rear left leg. He probably had been shot by a hunter. I turned around to leave him in peace. When I drove by on the way home, I could still see him out there slowly walking in the same direction. Poor guy.
Sunday: 11/23: 7 w/ Rachel and athlete. Nice and easy today. My legs were a wee tired from yesterday's quick pace. I overdressed on this run as it warmed up into the 40s by the end.
Weekly total: 28.5 - good week. Getting in a groove. Hopefully 30s next week.
