|A shot from Saturday's run|
Happy Monday! Once again, I'm joining Hoho Runs and MissSippiPiddlin for their Weekly Review linkup. My training goals are the Broke Man's Winter Warm Up and Naples Half Marathon. You can read more about each event in week 1's training recap.
Monday: 3 miles, 8:51 pace
Tuesday: 3 miles, 8:38 pace
Wednesday: 1.68 miles, 8:46 pace (I woke up late)
Thursday: 5 miles, 9:03 pace
Friday: 1 mile, 8:12 pace
Saturday: 6 miles, 9:01 pace
Sunday: 2 miles (7:58 pace) + .13 (7:33 pace) and .35 (7:41 pace)
Total: 22.2 miles
My paces above look great, but I stopped a lot for traffic. I usually stick to my neighborhood to avoid interruption, but it’s barely a mile loop and difficult for me to stay motivated.

Alex needed a run on Sunday to prep for the Turkey Trot, so I joined to get in a rest day mile. He said he’d run with me (normally unheard of) so we ran together for a mile until I turned around. He’s "out of shape" (for him. It’s peak shape for normal people.) and I’m able to run faster these days, so we stuck together. He had me in the upper 7s and low 8s. He’s normally in the 6s, so I’m glad he slowed down. I hope we can continue to run together… he’s not very good about running slower than 9 minute miles. He complains and says it hurts. (Booooooo)
I’m still enjoying the #chasethebird streak. Sure sometimes I’d rather not run, but one mile isn’t too bad. Plus it makes running a standard part of my day. I have to do it, just like I have to brush my teeth. I’d like to keep it up, but I may be relieved when Friday comes and I can quit. We’ll see what happens!
Is anyone considering the Runner's World holiday run streak?
What's your favorite Thanksgiving side? (Mine is green bean casserole.)
