I don't have a lot to report on. I decided I needed to run more. 36 miles in a month (November) isn't enough, especially when I'm not really injured. I suppose I had some "injury" issues at the beginning of the month, I was definitely trying to prevent plantar faciitis from coming back/getting worse, but I was just plain lazy for the second half of the month. I am at 25 miles for the month of December so far. I have been debating going back to running 5 days a week, or staying at 4 days (although that has been more like 3 the last month or so).
I have also been debating running a half marathon in January. I don't know if I will be able to because I have cut back on my running so much. I asked some running friends on facebook and I was told "probably" I could. So I'm upping my distance, especially on the weekend, and will see how it goes from there.
Last Saturday I did hill work. I went up and down a hill close to my house 10 times. It was tough, and I don't even think it was the "recommended" hill distance, but I started in the middle and ended before the top, so I can add to the distance as I get better. Maybe the fact that I did 10 repeats means I could do longer and less repeats. I don't know. I'm just winging it. =)
In other news, I'm making my family's Christmas presents. I'm tearing apart pallets and cutting and sanding them, and then going to stain them and put a family saying on them. It's been sorta fun.
