This week was a lot better than the last and I can tell I’m getting back on track. I was able to get three solid runs in this week, including one in 60 degree weather. Luckily I saved up enough vacation time this year that my last day of work for 2013 was Thursday. This meant I was able to finally join the MCRR Friday morning run.
It was a small group, but we kept along the same pace so no one would be left behind. We ran 4.5 miles around town and followed one of my favorite paths. It was a little icy, which made for some fancy footwork, but it was great to have others to run with. We followed up the run with coffee and talks of training, races and running gear. I was even persuaded to sign up for my fall race, one I’ve had my eye on for a few years. I love running alone, but sometimes it’s great to have a group to motivate you along the way.
Tuesday: 2 Miles
Friday: 4.5 Miles (MCRR Group Run)
Sunday: 3 Miles
Total Miles: 9.5 Miles
My total miles are consistently growing and I have no doubt I’ll be back to my normal running routine in a few weeks. My biggest challenge will be traveling the next seven of eight weeks. It will be hard to get runs in, but I’m determined not to let myself start from the bottom again.
Would you rather run by yourself or with a group? How do you get your workouts in while traveling?
