Total = 37 mi / strength x 3 –> highest mileage I’ve run in a while. I think my plan peaks in the 40s for the half marathon in Feb! I feel like I’m making some progress though more with endurance than speed. I have not felt physically tired/drained which is encouraging.
Yesterday was fun – kids enjoyed gymnastics as usual (and I got to hang out while they got in lots of activity!) and then we met up with friends at a local nursery that had a fall festival going on. We took a 90 degree hayride and the kids bought tiny cacti.
AND there was bubble tea. A nice day. Headed to a bday party with G (I did get a sitter for the other 2) and then I think we will attempt to use our Urban Air membership . . .
