Because I'm running before work, I generally end up looping my neighborhood. It's getting a little boring, but I don't want to deal with morning traffic on the surrounding streets. I tried to mix it up a little bit with a mid-week run featuring hill repeats near a golf course. We went to Ashtabula this weekend to see Alex's parents and visit the winery where his cousin is the winemaker. While there, I ran 5 relatively hilly miles. I stopped a few times for photos, so I think my 8:57 pace isn't completely realistic.
I'm keeping up with the #chasethebird challenge, but haven't won any prizes. I don't have to run everyday (in fact, the only requirement is 15 minutes of activity a day), but I've decided to treat it as a run streak and run 1 mile on my normal rest days. It ends on Thanksgiving, but I'll go at least one or two days over because I missed November 1st due to sickness.
Other than running, this week included an ambassador meet-up for the Broke Man's Winter Warm Up (check me out on the ambassador page!), a work happy hour, and the aforementioned trip to Ashtabula. All-in-all, a pretty low key week. I was able to start and almost finish my (online) Christmas shopping yesterday, which is a huge relief!
How was your week?
