89.6 miles by feet ( 48.3 running, 31.1 walking)
12 trips up the hill (3 running, 9 walking)
9 rest days (4 planned, 5 unplanned)
1 race (supposed to be a 5K, ended up more like 6K)
2 long runs with marathon-training-runner-friends
Those are pretty good numbers for me, especially given the bitter cold mornings (low 20s, sometimes with 20mph winds) that we've been experiencing. I'm happy to say that while I don't love cold weather, I've been sucking it up and going outside anyway. Only three of my unplanned rest days were due to me being a weather wimp. Running on a treadmill just isn't an option that I'm willing to entertain at this point.
Plans for December
Jingle Bell run next weekend.
Conquer the hill by running to the top without stopping.
Don't be a weather wimp; keep going outside!
Survive holiday parties without compromise.
Enjoy Son's winter break (he'll be home in 18 days, but who's counting?!).
