I’ve actually gotten in a couple of runs since I last checked in here – I’ve been pretty solidly running three days a week, and I feel great for doing it. This morning, we’re packing the car to go and see the in-laws for Thanksgiving, so I hit the streets at 5am while Will got the suitcases together. It wasn’t too chilly out, which was nice – the 60 degree weather we had yesterday made for a cool but not cold early morning run. I had already (stupidly) packed my GPS watch, my headlamp, my water bottle, and my new running shoes, so I went out with my plain old Timex, a substitute bottle, a flashlight, and my old shoes. I don’t recommend running with a flashlight – the light moving as my arms pumped made me dizzy – I ended up turning the thing off about a half-mile into my run. Not 100% sure how far I went, but I think it was around 2.15-2.25 miles. I plan to use the GPS next time I do that loop to see exactly what it is. In the meantime, I’m hoping to get a few good runs in while in Indiana – the hotel we stay at is just outside of a little neighborhood, so I should be able to do it, assuming we don’t get quite as much rain as they’re calling for out there!
So, no weigh-in this week. I won’t have a scale to do it. I will, however, do my damndest to eat well and not come home weighing 10 pounds more. Happy Thanksgiving!!
