November Wrap-Up


November was quite the "low" month for me. I only posted 10 times in this here blog, a record low. I only ran 38.2 miles, a record low since I started keeping track. I didn't do a single Monday night run with the running group, also a record low since I joined.

But I did travel to San Francisco. I did PR in a 10K race. And I think my running motivation is coming back. I mean, even though the temperatures this week have been hovering in the 20oF range I ran on Monday night and I've actually been bummed that I haven't been able to run at lunch due to work things.

I'm looking forward to continuing to strength train and I'm hoping to join the running club on a Saturday morning run in the near future. Nothing helps to combat the cold and snow like running with a group. It will also help me get out of bed and get my runs done in the morning so I don't lollygag around. Although, there is something to be said for sleeping in.

What about you? Do you like to get up and get your workout done or do you just fit it in when you feel like it?

Harrison is really good about getting up and doing his workout immediately. I, on the other hand, am really good at lounging around and convincing myself to run in the afternoon. I usually get it done (because I'm terrified of gaining weight...?), but I wish I were more diligent about getting it out of the way. It's just so hard to get out of a cold apartment into the colder weather.

Are you coming down to CU any time soon? I missss youz!

I strongly prefer the first thing in the morning run though less so during the winter when of course it is dark and much colder in the morning. I also posted a very low amount of miles during November, and October as well.

I like to workout first thing in the am. During the winter I sometimes wait until it's warmer, but don't like doing that. I think it's part of my anxious personality - something I need to work on!

I hope you get to do a Saturday run with your group soon!

Now that the weather is bad, I am trying to stay on a regular work out schedule but can easily be swayed too. I need to stay focused!
