Thanksgiving Week isn’t a big deal for us as Brits abroad, but it did mean that my husband had the week off, so there was a lot more couples running than I’d initially intended, which means shorter, most of the time. We also went out and around the countryside a fair bit, so I got to do some trail running, but it turns out the Marin Headlands are pretty hilly! We bailed on the Saturday parkrun because of crazy rain, but did a stairs workout instead on Sunday to make up for it.
I’m still having trouble with my ankles and the tops of my feet being stiff and sore, which I’m fairly sure it hills related. It’s very different to problems with my feet that I’ve had before, which was cramping along the bottom caused by too-stiff shoes.
This is how this week went, anyway:
|Date||Planned Distance||Actual Distance||Time||Pace|
|22 November||4.0km||2.3km||12:55||5:33/km (5:38/km GAP)|
|23 November||10.0km||4.5km (trail)||25:44||5:38/km (5:04/km GAP)|
|25 November||4.0km||6.4km||34:12||5:17/km (5:20/km GAP)|
|26 November||5.0km||2.0km (stairs intervals)||13:31||6:38/km (6:13/km GAP)|
And this is how I want next week to go:
