This week I've begun to consider trying the daily blog entries again. There's plenty of seasonal things happening on the trails and plenty of wildlife so I could start carrying the camera again! Also, I just had my son's dog, Piper, return for a few weeks so will be on the trails with her.
I was still in recovery mode this week. My body was quite sore after last Saturday's race so the beginning of the week was a bit of a struggle. Much better by the end of the week.
Event photos have been posted so will throw a shot of the start onto this blog entry...over 7000 runners starting a 7 mile cross-country race...billed as the largest in the U.S.
Monday - 7 miles
Tuesday - 10 miles in two workouts
Wednesday - 6 miles
Thursday - 6 miles (at Pilot Knob rather than Lime Creek and after Thanksgiving dinner!) Weather change moving in with a ten degree drop in temp while out
Friday - 6 miles bitterly cold and very windy
Saturday - 7 miles
Sunday - 9 miles for a 51 mile week
if I continue some steady miles for the next 5 weeks, I can hit 3000 miles for this year...the most I have ever logged for one year! That helps provide some incentive even without a race on the horizon.
