Weekly Roundup: September 29th

Finally I am starting to feel normal again after my ten day battle with the flu.  My favorite run of the week was yesterday, when I finally felt that my breathing was nearly normal and I could run and not cough a lot. This was also a special week for me, as I joined a coached running group and did speedwork at the track on Thursday morning! Sadly I had to wear my fluorescent vest for my morning run yesterday despite starting my run at nearly 6:45am. November 3rd and daylight savings can't come soon enough!  Marathon training is going well for Christine as she continues the countdown to her race in late October.
Fashionable vest and two lights!

What was your favorite workout of the week?


  1. Glad you're feeling better Pam-I had the flu once and it knocked me on my butt for sure! And glad your training is going well Christine! I love fall and winter EXCEPT for the shortened days-makes it hard to workout outside before or after work. I had a GREAT run yesterday morning with my training group, so excited to see improvement over the last month. I'm off early this morning to watch a friend swim in the Ohio river. Hope you both have a great day!

    1. Monica, Glad you had a great weekend run. It is fun to see improvement on training runs. Have a good week!

  2. Glad to hear you are feeling better Pam! I am also looking forward to Daylight Savings!

  3. Yay, PAM! Glad to hear you're feeling better. Sadly, I'm starting to come down with it.. All of those children from school are passing germs and it's caught up to me.

    1. Sarah, I hope yours is not like mine. I was really struggling with the virus for a week and the cough is still not entirely gone!

  4. So glad you are feeling better Pam! Great week of workouts for both of you!!!

  5. Yay Pam! So glad you are feeling better!! I'm excited you joined a running much fun! :0)

    1. Thanks Karen. I love my coach, she is so encouraging! I can't wait to go back this week!
