I have been limiting myself to elliptical runs this week. I seem to have caused a strain in my right glute medius (above main glute onwards toward the ITBand), and don’t want to cause an injury. I also have been raking leaves like a madman to try to get them up from around our house before tomorrow’s first big snow snow of the season comes, as the leaves become hard to get up once the first big snow hits. Yesterday I was out for 5 hours into the dark. It feels like snow in the air this morning, and I don’t feel like more raking, but I will anyway.

I have also been dog sitting, so I have been walking 3 large dogs daily...a challenge at times to say the least..,they all follow their noses, and stop to sniff at will (which isn’t coordinated with each other).

I will probably do my long run this week...seeing how I feel. If It doesn’t feel right, it is easy to stop. I love running in the snow.

Looks stunning. I love walking my dogs but still haven’t managed a sensible run with them as they get under my feet and stop to sniff or pee too often. It’s really windy here but still 8 degrees C so no prospect of snow. Good luck with your big run next week and thank you for being such a supportive informative teammate.

      Good thing you love to run in the snow, since that seems to be what we are getting up here (along with ice pellets, freezing rain...)

        Solid plan. Nice picture.

          I was out there Sunday too raking until those first snow flakes dropped. Now today I'm shoveling a foot of snow.

          Smart move playing it safe with the elliptical this week. If you can get the final run in this week in the snow, great. But you know how to do the distance already anyways, and you'll be running for weeks and months to come regardless. So find the balance that works to finish off your 8 weeks smart and safe.
