It's been 3 weeks since my last run. I want to run but I've had weird foot issues since my half so I've decided to not run and let whatever is going on heal. My feet are feeling pretty good now so I'm hoping to run again this Friday since I have the day off.
I'm also considering running in a 5k Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning. We've done this race for the past 2 years but this year, if I decide to do it, it'll be just my 10 year old daughter and me. We will run at her pace so this will just be a fun run for me.
I hate daylight savings because it's now dark by 5pm. I'm thinking that I either need to run on Monday and Wednesday afternoons while my daughter is at soccer practice (I'd have about 1 hour of daylight to run in) or get up early and run. I noticed that by 6am this morning it was light enough to see which would give me 30 minutes to run before having to get ready for work. I won't run in the dark because I'm nervous about not seeing something on the ground or uneven pavement and rolling my ankle again.
I'm thinking that instead of running for mileage this winter I'll run for time and get my longer runs in during soccer practices, shorter runs in on the days I would get up at 6am and speed workouts on Saturday mornings. This would be a complete flip flop of my normal running schedule which had my long runs on Sundays and shorter runs during the week. I don't know yet, something to think about though.
My local Lululemon store is offering free track workouts with a run coach on Saturday mornings and I really want to go to those, schedule permitting of course. We are now in the midst of not only soccer games but basketball games as well, so my weekends are crazy. Three games this past weekend!
I'm inquiring about the half marathon course for a race in March. If it's flat I'm thinking I want to run it but I'm worried about training in wet weather. I don't mind the cold so much but training in rain is not my cup of tea. I've posted the question on the race's Facebook page so we shall see what people say. I need to make a decision soon because it's now 20 weeks away from the race.
