Slowly easing back into activity and my last “long” run/race for a bit. I’m joining up with the Weekly Wrap from Holly @ Hohoruns and Wendy @ Taking the Long Way Home to share running and racing this week — I had my eye on a couple of 5ks in the next couple of weeks but now I’m thinking maybe my body needs a bit more rest. Still haven’t decided.
- Monday: Dogwalk, SB WU (10 Minutes), Pilates Arms & Abs (20 minutes)
- Tuesday: 5 miles easy with just a little cold rain, Iron Strength Glutes
- Wednesday: Dogwalk x 2, Triggerpoint Grid Core Work (20 minutes)
- Thursday: Dogwalk x 2
- Friday: 4 miles easy with 5 by 30ish seconds strides, Triggerpoint Grid Core Work (20 minutes)
- Saturday: Dogwalk, Pilates Total Body, Abs & Stretch
- Sunday: Stockadeathon 15k
Mileage: 18ish (+1)

I do love me an off season! Even if mine might be the shortest one ever. If I do BDR Savannah, I’ll be back in training next month. I would’ve run to vote, only there was rain in the forecast and I didn’t know how long the wait might be at the polling place.
So of course the dry radar produced some nice cold rain on me during this run, but thankfully it was really only a short period of rain. Glad I got it done before more showers moved in. And yes, I drove to vote later. I really didn’t want to tackle the hill back from the polling place anyway since my 15k this weekend is hilly enough.
No rain — in the morning. It was cold and cloudy but thankfully not windy. This run felt pretty good. I’m not feeling quite as sluggish as I was after my last half, just the normal seasonal sluggishness. 🙂
I’ll be recapping my 15k on Tuesday. Despite having several friends running the race, I parked in a different area (same place I always park, bathrooms with no/short lines always available), but I spaced on the time of the start of the race as I was chatting with another couple . . . and so I got a warmup as I ran to drop off my dry clothes and coat at the bag check, making it to the start with about 2 minutes to spare . . .
I’ll leave the rest for the recap!
Favorites of the week
The hot chocolate at the diner after the race was really tasty, and no, I didn’t even think about taking a photo of it. And speaking of sweet, as I mentioned Friday (read it here), I actually did a little sugar reset (not detox!) this week. It went well.
Running a race “with” friends (well, I did meet up with them afterwards) and seeing friends along the route (and in the race — even my brand new “friend”).
Let’s get the conversation started:
Have you ever completely spaced about when a race starts — when you’re pretty much already there!?
Chocolate milk or hot chocolate after a cold race?
Do you get a lot done after a race? Must say I didn’t today. Which I’ll probably regret next week . . .
