Run: October 31 – November 6

Do you see many animals when you run?

I often see squirrels and deer when I run, but today Chris and I had a special animal sighting during our run. We saw this fox, (twice!) during our hilly seven miles around a local lake. The picture is kind of grainy since Chris took it on his iPhone, but still pretty cool.

Foxy runner?

I didn’t get as many runs in as I hoped for this week, but I’ll roll with it. I skipped out on yesterday’s run so that I could go on my first hike in my new hiking boots. I want to make sure that they really are more comfortable than my old ones before I commit to hiking forty-some-odd miles in them! 

  • Sunday: 5.42 miles @ 9:28
  • Monday: 6 miles @ 8:28 (9:01, 8:31, 8:11, 7:35, 8:03, 9:14) <– I just want to make a point of saying that I am really proud of this run. It wouldn’t be a fast run for everyone, but for me that was a really solid run!
  • Tuesday: 60 minute trainer ride (hard effort)
  • Wednesday: 65 minute easy trainer ride
  • Thursday: 7 miles @ 9:18 (9:22, 9:39, 10:02*, 9:40, 9:20, 8:57, 8:07) *Much of this mile was on one of those sidewalks that is so cracked and broken that you are just waiting to trip. I ran very carefully and will avoid this street in the future.
  • Friday: rest
  • Saturday: 4.5 mile hike

Total Weekly Miles: 18.42
Total October Miles: 56.45
Total November Miles: 13
Total Yearly Miles: 971.73
Miles on Current Shoes: 166.59

  1. Foxes are so cool! I’ve seen a few on runs in New England, but never here. I mostly see eagles, ravens, and porcupine.

    How great that you have a built-in running partner in Chris — I’m envious!

      Eh, not so fast. Chris isn’t quite as eager to run as one might hope that he would be! I do get really excited when he is willing to come with me though, it makes the run go by much more quickly!

    Looks like a good week! I also love the fox picture 🙂
