Just like that, it’s already November. As usual I am wondering where the time has gone. This week I was able to ease back into my workouts after being sick last week, and I also started working on some November goals. Of course this weekend was the end of daylight saving time, which sure does get interesting with a baby!
By Monday of last week I was feeling better so I started off the week with some strength training just to make sure I felt ok. Then on Tuesday I got in a short run which also felt good. I still have a bit of a cough that is lingering but otherwise I seem to be recovered from whatever I had.
Thursday was Halloween! We were supposed to get rain all day but it cleared up in the afternoon for trick-or-treating. We sat outside and gave out candy while Grayson wore his costume.
I ran on the treadmill on both Thursday and Friday due to the weather. I have a feeling I will be on there a lot more in the coming months, so I am also trying to get outside when I can. Sunday’s run in the cool, fall weather was perfect! I also got to run when it was light out which was a bonus.
While I usually love DST in the fall, this year was a little different. Most days Grayson is up by 6am (sometimes earlier) and with the time change he was up at 4:30. I am always up by that time anyway, but I need time before he gets up to drink some coffee and get some things done! So we will be working on adjusting his schedule over the next few days. I’m sure he will figure it out.
Weekly Run Down
Monday: Strength training
Tuesday: 3 miles
Wednesday: Strength training
Thursday: 5 miles
Friday: 3 miles
Sunday: 4 miles
My November goals are basically to just make time for mobility and core work and to cut back a bit on the miles. I am hoping if I run less then I won’t have an excuse for skipping the other stuff. Lately I feel like I have just enough time to run and that’s it. I think now is a good time to get back to that stuff before I start training for anything.
One other thing- every time there is a big race this year it leaves me wanting to run that race! First it was Chicago, and now it’s NYC. Hopefully I will get to do both at some point!
Do you have any goals for November?
Are there any big races you want to run?
How do you feel about DST?
