a good week

Well today was a great day.

So I ended the week with about 12 miles. Not too bad.

On Tuesday I ran at work with a work friend, our usual 3.30 miles. Lately it has been a bit slow but we were able to get it done in 29 minutes and change. Our best time was back in September at about 28 minutes and some change.

We were suppose to run on Thursday, but the weather kept us in. So I had to settle for running on the treadmill in the basement. Not too bad but I think our tread mill has got some age to it. Not sure if there is a way to "tune up" a tread mill but I am going to look into it. I am really starting to enjoy running outside more and more.

So on Sunday I ran with the group. We had three new people join us. It was a great time. I don't run very fast and I feel bad that the others run so much faster then me, but we all have a good time. I must say that I am enjoying running with others rather then going out by myself.

So I have been doing some research on training programs for completeing marathons and I found one that I am going to give a try. Some have already started, they are 20 week or 25 week plans. This one is a 16 week plan that has me running 4 days a week with the long run scheduled on Sunday. It does not start until Dec 1st so I will be just maintaining base miles until then.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner so I better get some running in if I want to enjoy some stuffing........
