Olive Chapel-Apex BBQ. Uneventful run. It was nice to see the Christmas lights come on while I was running. Good stuff!

  • Yoga
  • 50m

Hot yoga. The class was listed as 45 minutes. I stayed for 50 but had to scoot out of there because, you know, work. I showered and changed and then went back to the yoga room on my way out. The instructor was still there and I asked her about it. She said that officially the class is 45 minutes but she teaches a full hour but feel free to leave after 45 minutes.

In other news, I lost a toenail in class. Yup, the one that had the blister under it. Fun times.

√ Run tonight!

Kevin's been sick all week.  Head cold, sinusy type thing.  I have explained to him that marathon training is in progress and that this is definitely a case in which sharing would not be appreciated.

Shepherd's Vineyard-Peakway

Easy run through town. This is kind of an interesting route -- Old Raleigh towards the library on US64, then a greenway to the Peakway, left on Salem and back to Old Raleigh. It’s slightly downhill for the first mile. Almost exactly at the one mile mark, it becomes a slight uphill for a mile and a half and then just a little up and down until a half mile downhill to get back to my neighborhood. A good choice for an easy run.

Early morning walk with Emma. There was a foggy mist thing going this morning but at 37 it was already two degrees warmer than yesterday's high temperature (and nearly 30 degrees lower than it was when I walked Emma on Friday morning).

Olive Chapel-Kelly Road Part 2

Misty morning run. It was about 35 with a steady mist/drizzle the whole way. This is logged as two runs but actually one 9.22 mile run. I wiped the mist off my watch and accidentally saved the workout so I had to restart it for the last bit.

We rented Mortal Instruments: City of Bones from Redbox.  Decent movie for a rainy Sunday afternoon.  I read the Infernal Devices series so I knew that it would involve swordplay and vampires and demons and so on because that's the author's style.

Damp Saturday morning ride. It was in the low 40s with a misty drizzly thing going so I was kinda glad that a long ride wasn't on the schedule. ;-)

Another kitchen transition day.

Brick run after the ride. The wind picked up here. I got to downtown and there were lawn chairs lining the street. In the rain. Whaaa? Oh! People are already saving spots for tonight's Christmas parade!

Holiday tri club party tonight!

Shepherd's Vineyard-Hillcrest-Center

The training plan called for 6 miles with 3x1 mile @ 1/2 marathon pace with 1/2 mile easy between. I used the route that I checked out on Tuesday for this. In fact, I ran slightly longer, however, I messed up and hit the pause button instead of the lap button on my first one mile interval (making it really 1.3x miles but only recording the last mile of it). If I had to mess up, why couldn't I have accidentally given myself and extra bit of recovery? Pfft. I thought that my heart was going to explode but it did not.

And why has DH started to make a habit of coming to meet me at the door after my run and then starting to set the table. Hello?! I haven't made dinner yet! When I ask him about it he says that it works out fine for me to workout after work but in reality...

Foggy this morning!  I had to remember how to turn on the fog lights!
