I made it through my final week of Rundestober, which was my run streak for October! (Plus the 5 days I ran at the end of September). Our weather this week was not great and I was on the treadmill more than I would have liked. Considering we had great weather the rest of this month, I can’t really complain. Let’s take a look at how the week went.
The Final Week of Rundestober
Monday: Strength Training + 3 Treadmill Miles
Tuesday: 4.2 Stroller Miles + Core
Wednesday: Strength Training + 3.6 Stroller Miles
Thursday: 5 Treadmill Miles + Core/Hips/Glutes
Friday: 9.6 Treadmill Miles
Saturday: 4 Miles + Core
After doing 2 virtual races last week, this week was all about easy miles! My legs held up really well but there was no reason to push it. Sometimes I find it’s easier to keep my pace easy on the treadmill, so I guess that was the silver lining of running on there.
We had quite a bit of rain this week. While I don’t mind running in the rain, some days it was easier to run on the treadmill, especially early in the morning when it’s dark out. It also just saves some times since I don’t need to get dressed in a whole bunch of layers.
During my run on Monday the treadmill program I use, iFit, kept freezing. I think it’s because my WiFi in my basement isn’ great. I would be running along a route and then it would freeze for like 10 minutes and I would be staring at the same stretch of road. After that we reset the router and it was much better! I don’t think I would have survived my long run on there if it was still happening.
I’ve never really been into Halloween, but I guess now that I have a kid I need to get on board. (He’s still too young to really get it yet.) Brooks encouraged us to dress up using their gear, so I dressed as Des Linden, who runs for Brooks. She loves coffee and whiskey, so I made a reel showing how she might spend her day.

On Halloween I didn’t dress up. Grayson was Spiderman in the morning and a dragon in the afternoon. We made individual baggies of pieces of candy and put them on a table at the end of our driveway. We had much less kids come by than usual and it seemed like everyone was being as safe as possible. It was a weird way to do Halloween, but it worked!
I’m gonna keep this post pretty short because I’ve been having lots of WordPress issues this weekend. Gotta love technology!
