Remember how last week I was complaining that we skipped fall and went right to winter? Well now we’re back to almost summer-like weather. We did have some nice fall mornings this week and even some 60 degree mornings and 70 degree days. Between the weather rollercoaster and the time change it was a confusing week. But it did make for some good running weather!
Weekly Run Down: Going Back Up The Weather Rollercoaster
Monday: 6 Miles with 1 minute hard/2 minute easy
I got in some faster running and it felt good! I also tried out my new GetVizy vest. So far it’s working out really well! You can save 10% using the code MILEBYMILE (affiliate link).
Tuesday: Strength Training and 20 minutes spinning
Just another day spinning and lifting. Nothing exciting here!
Wednesday: 5 Mile Run
Temps were in the high 40s for this run which felt great! I was also really feeling my glutes for some reason (but I love that feeling).
Thursday: Strength Training and 3 Miles
I did a strength workout and then got outside for 3 miles. It was almost 60 degrees at 5:30 am! I was really warm in just a long sleeved t-shirt.
Friday: Rest Day
Nothing to report here! I worked a half day and then took Grayson to the dentist. We haven’t gone since before COVID and it wasn’t as bad as I expected.
Saturday: 3.6 Stroller Miles
Even though I was up super early I didn’t feel like getting out the door early for a run. So once we were all up and the rain cleared we went out for a stroller run.
Sunday: Planning for 5-7 Miles
I know that’s kind of a big range of miles, but it will depend on how much time I have! (This is also assuming I run solo. If Grayson wants to come it won’t be more than 4 miles.)
The time change has really thrown us off around here. I am probably having the hardest time adjusting. All week I’ve been waking up at 3:30 am. (Usually my alarm is set for around 4:30) Grayson had a couple rough days but was back to a routine by the middle of the week. Now I’d really like to get back on a normal sleep schedule!
I really can’t believe what a rollercoaster of weather we have had this fall. I like having a mild November/December because then mentally its easier to push through the winter months starting in January. But it looks like it will get cooler again next week, so we’ll see how the rest of 2021 plays out!
Have you been riding the weather rollercoaster this fall?
Anyone else has a rough week of sleep thanks to DST?
