OOOoooooooooo…… Just in case you hadn’t noticed…it’s October. Which means I’m definitely in scary movie mode; I queued up my Netflix to send me a bunch of creepy movies this whole month…and you know what that means….Full on ZOMBIE MODE! I’m still working on costume ideas; Zombie Cinderella topping the list. Anyway, here’s how training’s been going.
Monday (rest): I do believe I did rest this day, minus the long day on my feet at work.
Tuesday (3 miles): I did do three miles exactly. It was a nice, refreshing run in the rain. I hadn’t had a good rain run in forever! It was very relaxing!
Wednesday (6 miles): I got to sleep in, enjoyed a nice pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks and then I had a very enjoyable 6 mile trail run on my normal Green Mountain Trails.
Thursday (3 miles): Worst. Day. Ever. Well, maybe not ever, but it was a pretty bad day. I believe I did get my run in to try to de-stress from the bad day.
Friday (rest): I actually ran 4 miles with my dog. We needed some quality time together, so we went for sunset run.
Saturday (rest): Drove to South Dakota!
Sunday (12 miles): Crazy Horse Half Marathon! BOOM!
The next week was not as good, running wise, at least, I don’t feel like it was:
Monday (rest): yep, yep
Tuesday (4 miles): I ran so strong this day! I wasn’t that sore and I just got all energetic, still “high” from my PR over the weekend, and bolted out the door!
Wednesday (7 miles): Oh damn. Well, I ran 5 miles straight through, then ran/walked the rest of the way home. I was not feeling it. At all. I also discovered that there is a trail through Denver that is biking/boarding/roller skating on one side of the creek, and running/walking on the other. Let’s just say, I learned the hard way. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll probably run it again, it was very pretty but I will make sure to get on the “right” side of the river.
Thursday (4 miles): I honestly can’t remember if I ran this day. Well, there’s no workout in my Map My Run app, so I’m guessing: None.
Friday (rest): Oh that’s right! I said I would run the next day. I ran 3 miles this cold morning. It snowed. Snow this early in the season means were going to have a good boarding season, right???!!!!
Saturday (rest): Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to work we go.
Sunday (14 miles): EEEEEKKK. I only did 7 miles, and not consecutively. I did, however, run a race. I did Race for the Cure for my 13th year. The course goes right by my house. It’s only a 5k, so I ran to the start (in below freezing weather and BEFORE the sun came up), registered for the race, ran the 3.2 miles of the race, and ran/walked back to my house. This week, I WILL get back on track. That is a promise to you and myself!

Oh I know exactly where you are talking about being on the wrong side of the river. I ran there on Wednesday over lunch. I was on the “right” side. I did see a little grandma walking over there that kept jumping as the bikes and skateboarders zoomed past her.
The poor old lady! She probably never saw the signs!!!
So…I’m looking for running costume ideas. What exactly does Zombie Cinderella entail? 🙂 Will you be running in this costume?
PS – you won the Naked Sports Bra giveaway!
