11/14 – NSOMAT – stack 2 tons hay
11/15 – NSOMAT property chores, manage load of poles, very late night/long day – no running
11/16 – rest (wimped out!)
11/17 – 6 mile run on gravel and paved roads. 52 degrees, wind minimal.
11/18 – 8 mile run on gravel and paved roads. 60 degrees, wind minimal. Comfortable run late afternoon/early evening. Remembered this shirt can only be worn for runs of up to 6 miles and then it peels the skin off my collar bones. And that looks fantastic with a low neckline and nice necklace. Yoga.
11/19 – 9 miles on gravel and paved roads. 42 degrees, wind 8 mph.
11/20 – 18 mile run on gravel and paved roads with fuel belt. Still using the Perpetuem – working well. 40 degrees, wind 10 mph. Tough run with some walking. Due to disruption of training schedule, had to compress quite a lot of running into 4 days. Tired!
Six miles used to be my favorite training distance. It was easy and comfortable and I didn’t think much about it. These days 8 miles has become my new preferred distance. It’s too bad I can’t just run eights while getting ready for this race. Sigh. Well, I’ll enjoy the ones I get…
One toenail is darkening up and my Achilles tendons are… tired.
