All the various levels of crazy converged to make it such that the only runs I could make happen on a regular basis were our Saturday-morning-with-the-Math-Teacher runs. There were a couple others spattered in there, but yeah... not much.
But all told, I do not in any way consider that to be a failure. Given that my usual pattern of the past several years would have been to stop running sometime in October and not begin again until, oh, March, I'll call a few single-digit weeks a rousing success in the "maintaining consistency" department.
But... after that zero-mile week last week, enough is enough. I got back into it with a Monday morning "Saturday" run with tMT and her lovely daughter (aka the speedster). Easy three miles, no big deal. But I'd forgotten that it would count for Kiley's Christmas Virtual 5K!
So. Pretty pleased about that.
Took yesterday off (I don't think I got out of my pajamas yesterday). Today I'll get in a few miles while the kids swim. I've got several weeks of base-building to get in before starting my training plans for a May half-marathon and the Portland Marathon in October (yep, those are my A-races for 2013).
So. Back at it...
