Managing through the pressure

Still plenty of choice at Chez Emerging Runner
Today's run (treadmill): 3.2 miles

Happy Halloween! So far I've successfully avoided the candy we bought for Trick or Treaters. Among the mix are Mounds and Almond Joy bars so you should be very impressed by my willpower.

I've had a couple of days of sinus pressure and the headaches that come with that. I decided to do my workout on the treadmill today to keep things simple. I also had early morning calls and needed to save some time. My goal was to move but not push enough to exacerbate my sinus issues. It was a decent session and I learned that the average commercial break on CNN is .36 miles.

I'm hoping that sleep and a change in the weather will bring me back to feeling strong enough to run hard this weekend. It's my last chance to train for the Hope for Warriors 10K on the 10th. My base is definitely below 6.2 miles right now, but I'll give it my best shot.

  2. This post made me chuckle, thanks! .36 miles indeed! I hope your sinus issues improve. I tend to be more allergic to stuff around this time of year.
    Your will power IS admirable. Mine, however, is not.
    I've been speeding up, but my base is just like yours. Hopefully extra light in the morning might change that for both of us.
    Sorry I had to delete my first post. It was before my first cup of coffee and unreadable. :)

    1. I don't know why Blogger highlights deleted comments. I often hit send before previewing and have to delete what I wrote because of mis-typing.

      Sinuses are better today, thanks. I'm debating whether to deal with the wet weather or return to the treadmill this morning.
