I can’t believe it’s Thanksgiving week! It is getting cold in Massachusetts and winter is almost here.
I had a productive week with my training. The Dopey Challenge Weekend (5k 10k Half Marathon and Marathon) is almost here. The races will begin on January 5, 2023.
This week I practiced a “Mini Dopey Simulation “to mimic the real one in January. My body is responding well to the demands of training.
Recently, I have been doing my training runs on a treadmill. I really HATE cold outdoor running. When I run on the treadmill, I usually watch tv or listen to music to prevent boredom. I can train equally well on a treadmill or outdoors.
Friday 3 miles (5k) went well …. slow and easy
Saturday 6 miles (10K)
Sunday 13 miles (Half Marathon)
Monday 18 miles
Other than running, my weekend was quiet. I watched some football, played with my dogs, and just relaxed around the house.
I am looking forward to Thanksgiving. My husband and I are hosting Thanksgiving Dinner. I love cooking and baking for guests. It always gives me joy preparing food for friends and family.
