|Saturday morning on the Monon|
I had a rather busy week with work and other obligations, plus one day I just plain forgot to pack my sports bra, so I didn't get quite as many miles in this week as I'd originally planned. I only ran three days, which feels like slacking. But they were good quality runs, so I've got that going for me.
Monday was reverse hill suicides with #TeamMoHills. It was a really tough workout, but these ladies always make it fun. Crazy that it was still in the 80s in mid-October!
|S'more on a Stick!|
The Run(317) races this year were all a lot of fun, even though the weather didn't always cooperate. I'm looking forward to seeing what they have for us next year. Now that Indianapolis has a second area code, though, will they have to offer two distances? Either way, I really hope to see the S'more Mobile again!
Long RunSaturday was my long run - 16 miles. I had listed on our What's Next page that I was running the Hendricks County Fall Colors 10K, but I never actually did sign up for it. Normally I don't list an event I'm not registered for, but I kept intending to do this one. Every time I brought the website up, though, something stopped me. So I decided to do my long run with BGR's All About That Base group, and I'm so glad I did. I ran with Re'Nita for the first 8 miles, Broad Ripple to Carmel. I was enjoying chatting with her and didn't even feel like we'd gone all that far. She had a longer run on her schedule than I did, so I turned around at 8 and headed back while she kept going. It was a gorgeous fall day - perfect weather for a long run. Average pace was 13:01. Interestingly mile 8 was my fastest, at 11:41.
Total miles for the week: 28.4
Total training miles to date: 396.05
Winner x 2Hopefully Laura blogs soon, but while we wait I'm going to brag on her. She ran two races Saturday: a 10K road race in the morning and a 5 mile trail race that night. She was 1st in her age group and 5th female overall in BOTH RACES! Way to go Laura!
Two Halloween events this week: the Athletic Annex Candy Caper on Friday night (not a race, just a fun run), and the Brew HaHa Saturday morning. Despite Siri's advice, however, I have some good costumes for both races. Stay tuned to Instagram....
