Weekly Mileage-36.jpg

Happy Sunday!  I hope you had a great week with your family.  I had a great time and ate so much these past couple of days.  It was all yummy but not good for my waist.  🙁

How is it that we are in December?  November did go by fast and I am sure December will too.  I will be in school 3 weeks and then will have Winter Break.

I did not run a lot in November.

For some reason I did not feel good this week.  I was sneezing a lot.  For sure I thought I would get sick but I didn’t.  Could it be allergies?  I remember my doctor telling me that as one gets older, they can get allergies.  

Monday morning I ran 3 miles. I forgot to delete my records last week but remembered to do it on Monday.  Happy with my fast mile.

I did not run on Tuesday but saw a beautiful sunrise.


My coach moved a few workouts because I did not feel good.  I was exhausted Tuesday and Wednesday.  Due to the changes I ended up running on Thanksgiving.  It was a fun workout.  It was 3 miles warmup and 6×1 minute intervals with 1 minute recovery, then another mile or so to end with 5 miles.  I got 2 badges!

Another record for me.  Boy, I have a lot of work to do.  🙂

Something happened with my left foot.  The top left side began to bother me.  I was supposed to run 6 miles on Saturday but didn’t because of my foot.  Plus it was raining and I did not want to run in the rain. 😜

It felt somewhat better on Sunday but I didn’t make it to one mile.  It hurt!  I went back home and sent a text to my couch.  He said it was probably due to a tight calf and tendon.  I thought it was my shoes and decided to retire my Brooks Ghost 11 with 335 miles.  I was hoping to make it to 400 miles.  How cute are my new Oiselle tights?

My coach had me do 60 minutes (20 minutes easy followed by 4 x 5 minutes fast, 5 minutes easy).  That is the longest I have been on the bike!  I thought it would be bored but I wasn’t. 😜  I biked through several cities by the sea and watched TV.  

Do you have allergies?  Did you have them as a kid or “recently”?

Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.

27 Comments on Weekly Run Down: End of the month and 335 miles

  1. I hope that is nothing serious with your foot!
    I had terrible allergies when I was 30ish. Allergic to pollen and certain types of food (grain, eggs, celery and other random stuff). It came out of nowhere and I felt tired all the time, had swollen eyes and rashes on my skin. I did a desensitization therapy and it disappeared. Since then, I am fine. It was like a miracle.

  2. I do not suffer with allergies, knock on wood, but I know that you can get them at any point in life. Mr. Judy has terrible allergies. Has always had them.

    I hope that your foot continues to improve. Damn feet!

  3. I had seasonal allergies as a kid (hay fever), but they got progressively worse as I got older. Several years ago, we underwent a major renovation in our house, and I was a mess…not just sinus-related, but big time skin problems. Numerous allergy tests revealed a few weird skin allergies and many other allergies (I think there were 32 things they tested me for, and I reacted to maybe 30 of them). So, after almost 5 years of weekly allergy shots, I’m pretty much in the clear now…but cats, pollen and dust were the biggest ones on there LOL

  4. my allergies have actually gotten better with age but it could also be where I live now. My allergies were horrendous in New Mexico for some reason and not much better when I was in Portland.

    maybe it is something strained that made your foot hurt! hopefully it’s just kind of a one off thing and doesn’t last!

    Here’s to a great December and hopefully more running for you!

  5. I don’t have allergies but when I’m around anything that’s in abundance–dust, pollen, you name it, I do get a little stuffy. Right now, I’m dealing with a hoarse voice that will not quit. My doctor thought it was allergies until she examined me. Now I’m off to the ENT. They are doing construction at my office and I truly think it’s due to that. But we’ll see what I find out.

    Hope your foot feels better.

    • Thanks, Wendy. I hope it feels better soon too. I ran 3 miles on Monday and it was OK. The rest of the day was OK too. It is just weird that it started to hurt just like that.

  6. Thanksgiving was not good for my waist line either, LOL. Oh well, the holidays only come around once, right?!

    Sorry that you didn’t feel well this week 🙁 It could definitely be allergies as I have them year round and I also suffered a little this week.

    I hope that your foot feels better soon. Hopefully switching out sneakers will help.

  7. I didn’t get allergies until my 30s and I was a mess for a while. I’m not really sure what made it better. There are still times of the year, like the transition to spring and then the transition to fall, where I feel like I have a low grade cold, I’m not really sick but I sure am tired and sneeze a lot. I enjoyed my Thanksgiving Garmin badges as well. I’m going to reset my all of my records at the beginning of the year.

  8. Hope your foot is on the mend soon
    My allergies have gotten worse over the last decade or so. For me if I machine gun sneeze, it’s allergies. One is a cold

    • Thanks. The sneezing happens every couple of days and it is multiple sneezes. That also happens when I have a cold or am about to get one. However, no cold for me (yet).

  9. I had bad hay fever when I was younger. It has almost disappeared.

    Damn feet!

    Hope yours is better.

    Mine has put my running in hold. Pain on the ball of my foot when I run or even walk. Ugh!!

  10. I hope your foot issue is nothing serious! I developed an allergy to cats as a teen (and I loved cats 🙁 I’m not “officially” allergic to anything else but I swear I can feel it when mold and pollen counts are high.

Thank you for your comment!
