*sigh* After 2 nice days, we're back to winter. It was cool but blowing 20-25 mph yesterday. So I got on the treadmill and did hills for 45 minutes.

Today I woke up to 4 inches of snow on the deck... again. It'll be the trainer in the loft for me today.

Snow?? We can't even get back down into the 70's where we should be this time of year.

I did a two-mile easy run Tuesday morning. Planning three miles of tempo tomorrow. Hoping for a long run Sunday - skipped the Sunday run earlier this week because the IT band was acting up. I think it's getting there, though - still doing stretches like crazy and it's less and less of a problem.

Monday here (Canada) was Thanksgiving so I had my Turkey Trot race. Sandwiched in two weeks of bad weather, we had a SPLENDID day, so I had a great run. Very surprising considering that I have ran so little over the past few weeks.

Now I have a post-run cold. My nose is running ALL the time. But it's staying above the neck, so I ran a little 20 minutes this morning, just to clean my airways. Worked well for the morning, but I was congested again in the afternoon.

Will have gentle speedwork on Friday, a little long run on Sunday, and take some time to prepare my training plan for my ... February half-marathon!!

So a decent week, all things considered, so far.

back to running.... the week before last I was fighting off a cold which I did not want to break out during my cycling holiday.

Then a week's cycling with one run on a rainy day. A weekend actually having that cold.

This week I'm finally into our coach's 10K plan for a race in December.

Tuesday: 6x800 on the track, I held a 5min pace... plus I jogged there and back, total kilometreage :-) about 12 plus core exercises and stretching

Today: 90 min slow

A lovely, but cool run through the woods today. I so enjoy trail running! Much more than on the road. Did 4 miles in 40 minutes. Enjoyed the entire time.

Well after 3 weeks of no running at all, I decided to do a 3km walk/run with the school running club today. I figured my hip/calf hurt anyway, so I may as well run. I felt a few twinges but no serious pain and I iced my calf, hip, and foot when I got back which seemed to help. I think I'll do the half/half again next week as well. I need to make another PT appt though. Haven't been to see her for 10 days either...

Think I've finally shaken my cold and got out for a four mile leg stretcher yesterday. It was supposed to be a lunchtime run but work got in the way so got out after work, bit bizarre running along streetlit roads but the drizzle was refreshing. Current plan is hopefully another short lunchtime run today, a hilly trail run of about 7 or 8 miles on Saturday and possibly a short recovery type run on Sunday. I've got to work on Sunday (but from home) so it may turn into a complete rest day then on Monday 10K training starts in earnest with a set of intervals, can't wait actually as I enjoy intervals.

Booked races are another trail race on the 3rd of November and a road 10K on the 24th.

Revenge of the longjog - had the killer cough attack tonight. I hope I'll get rid of it soon.
