Okay, let's give this another try.

I ran another half-marathon a month or so ago (it was not fun--85 at the start line after weeks of sub-40s temperatures and I got so so so dizzy that I had to walk around mile 12 for a few minutes and then had to lie down for about twenty minutes at the finish, but all the times for that day were terrible and the winning times were 9 minutes slower than the previous year).

Lots of stroller running this week--6 Monday, 5.34 Tuesday, took yesterday off and just walked 3 miles bc my IT bands are bugging me, 7 today. Trying to really be careful about sleeping enough and eating well because I've decided to go for a PR in the half next spring and a marathon in the fall and the best way to start my training base is doing all the little things right. So I'm going to focus on nutrition, flexibility, and sleep for a couple months and then ramp up training in January.

Man I am the worst at posting lately! Last week was 6, 4, 10, 6, 4. The week before that was 10,4, 24 (I was in NYC for my sister’s fourth round of chemo so running was patchy, but I walked ten miles most days and got in one great 14-miler from Battery Park to Central Park and back). Headed out for a run with Matthew now!

I keep not updating because there are so many other things happening and I’m just cramming runs in. But the short version is I’m making sure to get in at least five miles four times a week and do a longer run on the fifth day.

So far this week I ran 5, 6, and 6. Taking tomorrow as a rest day and then running 8 before I have scalp surgery (removal and biopsy of a five-cm lump on the back of my skull) on Friday .Hoping to run Saturday but we will see.

I was a lot less worried about this surgery when I originally scheduled it three weeks ago.  Then last week my little sister was diagnosed with cancer.
