Week in Review: Dec 19 - Dec 25

I got out for a run three days last week, which is better than zero I guess.  Two of the three runs were possible because of leaving work early and squeezing them in before my daughter got home from school.  Thankfully, last week ended on a high temperature note so a lot of the snow and ice has melted from the road.  I may be able to return to dark mornings now that I don't have to worry about slipping on ice!

Tuesday: 5.04 miles, 35:37 (7:04 avg pace)
The bus was late so I got a full 5 miles in!  Yippee!  I always end these runs by running circles near the entrance of our neighborhood so I can see when the bus comes.  This means that I am usually running back to my driveway with the bus.  My daughter told me this cute story of how the kids on her bus think I am really fast because I beat the bus to our driveway. 

Wednesday: 4.2 miles, 30:01 (7:01 avg pace)
I ran around my office this day and while the sidewalks were fairly clear, I still fell on my bum.  I did not injure myself, but still was really embarrassed since I fell into an intersection, at rush hour, so lots of people saw!  

Saturday: 8.54 miles, 1:00:01 (7:02 avg pace)
It was a glorious day for a run.  The temps were above freezing, turning all of our snow into a slushy mess.  Unfortunately there were so many uncleared sidewalks which made for some slippery steps!  

Mile 1: 6:58
Mile 2: 7:35
Mile 3: 7:10
Mile 4: 7:04
Mile 5: 6:52
Mile 6: 6:56
Mile 7: 6:46
Mile 8: 6:54
Mile 9: 6:59

Weekly Mileage Total: 17.78

In other news, I got a R8 Roll Recovery torture device for Christmas!  That thing really hurts.  I cannot do very long sessions with it yet.  I am hoping it will help my tight calves!

Six more days to accumulate 2016 mileage!

  1. Nice! I have heard good things about the Roll Recovery. I think my friend is going to let me try hers and if I like it I will get my own.
