it's been a long - but productive - day! between bringing down the christmas decorations from the attic and grading my students' final exams, i barely had time to get out and run 6 miles! even though it was 5:20 when i got out the door (just after i picked katie up from track practice), it was plenty dark outside. that was actually more of an issue - between the headlights on the post road and the lighting challenged side streets - than the cold and wind!
i had taken yesterday as a rest day because i didn't get back home from work and class until after 9. it wasn't unexpected since practically every tuesday this semester turned into the weekly rest day :p i ran a decent 6 mile tempo run on monday. today it was just about getting an easy run. here are the splits:
another pair of six milers on deck for thurday and friday - which would give me 24 miles heading into the norfolk pub 10 miler on saturday. in between, probably tomorrow night, we'll pick up our christmas tree! and, on sunday, a social holiday run for toys 5k in fairfield - which as the name implies, collects toys for kids!
