November | One To Nothin'

November


Happy November, my friends! 'Tis the season to be thankful (and I really have so much to be thankful for), so for every day of November I will take a moment to reflect on something I am truly grateful for in my life. Today, I am thankful for my healthy and working legs. With them I am able to walk, dance, jump and, of course, run. Some of my happiest, saddest, most stressed out moments have been made better simply because my legs allow me to run. I haven't been talking about my training very much lately, but I've been taking the fat pup running a lot these days (she is actually looking more and more like a slender beagle baby every day), and it has been a rad way to bond, be challenged and even run faster. That dog motivates me like no other by literally pulling me forward with her leash. My options are run faster or dislocated my shoulder. And here's a fun fact: The Disney Wine & Dine half marathon is in nine days! That being said, here's a round up of my October running escapades.

10/1: 6.85 miles
10/2: 4.25 miles
10/3: 6.5 miles
10/8: 2.9 miles
10/10: 3.3 miles
10/15: 6.02 miles
10/20: 8 miles
10/21: 2.3 miles
10/22: 3 miles
10/24 3.5 miles
10/28 3.6 miles
10/30 7.07 miles
10/31 3.13 miles

Total: 60.42

I slacked off toward the middle there, but I think I'm going to be prepared for the race. My times lately have been pretty good (for me), so I'm interested to see how I'll do come November 10. I think it's time for a new PR. My goal for November, however, is to incorporate more weight lifting and cross training into my routine. I've been avoiding the gym like the plague, and in November this ends. I am going to pump you up.

Now go check out my favorite Plucky Picaroon and link up your fall-related posts!

  1. I'm so proud of you! I am also really overwhelmed. I have been slacking and my foot injury is trying to creep up on me again. I hope Disney Wine and Dine will magically be better!

  2. As much as running is not my favorite thing, running in a Disney race just might do the trick. You'll be great!!

    Thanks for the shout out! :)
