The Fairest Week In Review: 11/15

Running sneakers

More running! Hooray! My IT Band has been… pretty good. Every once and awhile I think it might be acting up a little but it’s nothing a little KT Tape hasn’t been able to handle. I do wish that stuff was cheaper, but then it’s nowhere near as expensive as medical bills, so. 

I think I might also look into getting some different running shoes for my long runs. Perhaps Black Friday will deliver some worthwhile deals? I almost bought the Nike Odyssey on my last shoe testing trip… but Brooks Ravennas performed well for me for years… thing to ponder.

In the meantime, here’s last week’s workout log:

Sunday | Across The Bay 10K; 6.15 miles outside in 58:11
I’m chalking up that extra .05 miles up to GPS wonkiness.

Monday | walked 2.14 miles outside in 35 minutes; 60 minute ballet classTuesday | ran 9.23 miles outside in 1:40

Wednesday | ran 5.64 miles outside in 60 minutes 

Thursday | walked 2.07 miles outside in 35 minutes; 60 minute ballet class 

Friday | ran 5.34 miles in 55 minutes
Then headed down to my parents’ new house in Wilmington, NC. My dad is retiring next year and my parents are in the slow process of moving south. I have no objections to this; the warmer the better, I say. Plus, it’s halfway to WDW!

Saturday | rest
Some wandering about Wilmington but otherwise a pretty chill day.
