We are a week into September and I am loving the change in weather! The humidity has basically disappeared and the temperatures are perfect both early morning and after work. It’s no wonder why I love fall running after my runs this week. Let’s get into it!
Monday, September 3
No spin class tonight since the gym has short hours for Labor Day. Got in my weights workout at the apartment gym and then headed to LA Fitness when it opened for some cardio. An hour on the stairmaster is no joke, I was drenched in sweat and wished I'd worn my heart rate monitor! But going forward, I think I’ll be wearing my heart rate monitor to track my cross-training workouts too.

3 miles ~ 27:34
It went from light rain to sheets but I got in a really great interval run. Not only were my 5K pace intervals 8:30 or faster but all my recovery intervals (except the uphill one that went a little long) were under 9:45!

3 miles ~ 31:21
Gorgeous afternoon for a run after work! My legs felt great after yesterday's run and my paced showed it.
Thursday, September 6
3 miles ~ 30:32
Speedy run after work with some pretty good negative splits! 10:11, 10:07, 10:06 which is amazing to me.
Friday, September 7
Just a nice day of work and recovering with some yoga afterwards. And lots of walks with Vinnie, including one that Mike grabbed a goofy picture of him enjoying the fall weather.
Saturday, September 8
5 miles ~ 47:46
A nice, speedy five miles without even trying and my splits were between 9:28-9:37 which is pretty close to even for me.
Sunday, September 9
8 miles ~ 1:21:53
Early morning miles (I started out before 6:30 a.m.) followed by a hike with my boys at Afton State Park! Both felt great but I was glad for an epsom salt bath and a nap after them.
