That's what happens when you surrender to Momma N and just go with what she hands you. And, sometimes, she does play nice.
On Monday, The temps were nice, but my body was oh-so-achy (from the prior evening's 5-miler and lingering DOMS from a recent stair workout). When the alarm sounded, I declared it a rest day and took the dog out for a short walk...and saved my #nevermissaMonday run until after work. The run was a simple easy-paced 1-miler, and was just what I needed after my body had those extra hours to recover from the weekend.

|Where did my legs go??? #awkwardpics|
|WOW! An AG placing!|
|Where's that sun, and why is the wind still blowing???|
My mileage for the week (Monday - Sunday) is decent: 17 miles of running (and probably another 5-7 miles of walking). Although, I'm not really in training for anything specific, I do have the Rock'n'Roll Half Marathon in Vegas (November 12th). Yes, that is a half marathon, but I am not planning on "racing" it. I am gradually increasing my long-distance runs each week, so I should be able to run those 13.1 miles at an easy pace, and there will probably be a few walk breaks sprinkled in as well. No worries.
In case you missed them, here's my posts from last week:

Did you catch my #FridayFashionFlair post on Instagram? How do you feel about leggings as pants? It's kind of a growing epidemic, but I say leggings are LEGGINGS and should be treated as such (meaning, make sure you have a long enough shirt/sweater/jacket that will cover your tush). That said, leggings are a staple nowadays for fall and winter because they're so comfy. Although they are more casual than business-like, you can dress them up a bit if you choose your accessories wisely, opting for flats or boots (instead of sneakers), adding some funky jewelry, and (as always) don't forget the lipstick. What's your opinion? Leggings: yay or no way?
