Hey guys! Can you believe that November has *almost* come and gone? That means that December is upon us and before we know it, it will be Christmas (woo hoo!) … and then tax season (womp, womp).
MONTH RECAP: November
Total running: 267.50
Workouts: Not much to report on the workout front this month. I spent the first part of the month doing nothing but easy runs, as my knee healed up. I jumped back into the swing of things with racing as soon as I was able to complete a tempo run. With a race almost every weekend, most of my other runs were just done at easy pace in order to recover for the next race.
2 mi. WU, 4 mi. progression tempo (6:30, 6:24, 6:21, 6:16), 2 mi. CD
17 mi. moderate pace LR (7:41 average)
8 mi. w/ 10 X 1:00 pickups @ 6:00 pace
Favorite Race: I really enjoyed the Battleship 12K! It was fun to race an unconventional distance and I will definitely add this race to my yearly rotation.
Longest run: 17 miles (this was my longest run since August!)
Shortest run: 3 miles
Favorite run: My favorite run was Turkey 10. I like the 10 mile distance and I had a smart, well-executed race that day. The race itself isn’t much to write home about (super bare bones), but I always really enjoy running that course.
Rest days: 2
Other: I got one elliptical session in (towards the beginning of the month, while my knee was “recovering”) and I rode the bike a few times.
Tell me. What do you have on tap for December?
