Dopey Challenge Training

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.
