Happy holidays to everyone! Not surprisingly this week was pretty busy for me, but I still managed to get 3 runs in (it was supposed to be 4, but this week that definitely wasn’t happening! So I cut out the 2 mile run). I couldn’t pass up this warmer weather!
On Monday I stopped at Valley Forge for a run after work. Because of the way the hills are the second half was actually faster than the first half of this run. It was a good one!
Tuesday I did another short run around my home. The 10:45 pace was actually better than I was expecting because it was my third day running in a row (Sunday I had done my 7 mile run). So I was definitely feeling it in my legs by this point!
I knew I had to get my long run in at some point, and with the weather around 70 degrees on Thursday I went for a Christmas Eve morning run. Still a little sore but I actually felt pretty good about finishing this one. And then I could relax and enjoy the holiday!
Of course, I got sick right after that with some sort of head cold so I’ve spent a couple of days resting as much as possible. I’m hoping to be able to feel strong enough to run again on Monday, but I’ll enjoy the break now while I can!
