November Mileage Wrap Up

November seemed like the longest month this year for me. Maybe it was the fact that it was darker earlier, the time change or it was just so busy I’ve yet to catch my breath.

As I said in my last post, I’m really looking forward to December; birthdays, work stuff, swimming/gymnastics ending for the girls and of course the holidays. Now, when I say I’m looking forward to the girls lessons ending it’s not because I don’t enjoy taking them or watching them, in fact I love that. I’m just ready after 10 weeks of getting up at early o’clock EVERY SINGLE DAY….to “sleep in”.

Though November seemed long, I managed to get back into working out more which I was starting to struggle with. I feel like I’m getting back to how many days per week I want to be working out.


I could still get in a few kilometres tonight but wanted a break as I have soccer tomorrow night and would like a rest night. I’m hoping to run a little more then 47km in December as I want to run more kilometres then last year.

I want to get back to my long runs as I’ve been encouraged to do so my my Physiotherapist. My ankle is getting better but we’ve added some more strengthening exercises. Over Christmas last year I ran the distance of a marathon between Dec 24th and 31st and planning to do that again this year. Fingers crossed I can reach my goal!

How was your November?

Any December goals? 

Runners: Do you try to run more kilometres/miles each year?

  1. Good luck reaching your goal for December! My new year’s resolution this year was to run 50 more miles than last. I finished that a few months back and am now thinking about setting up a more challenging goal for next year. I’m excited!

  2. I got back into running this November and clocked almost 80km! (June through October probably saw less than 80km combined). Hoping to hit 100km in December as my marathon training ramps up… have a wonderful December!

  3. Get it lady! I am soaking up all the running that I can right now–after Jan 3, I won’t be able to run/exercise at all. I don’t have a number in mind for this month, I just want to love every mile!

  4. Typically, I am not a numbers gal. I log the miles and am usually surprised at the monthly totals. I hate the “pressure” of trying to meet xxx mileage goals because that makes me force the miles (and often times ignore the need for rest/recovery as a result). That said, it was kind of exciting to see all the miles add up (quickly) in the past few months with my marathon training 😉

  5. Sounds like you are in a really good place!

    November was great for me! In December, I just want to survive Ragnar LOL! Then we’ll go from there.

    I do try to run more miles from year to year, but it depends on what kinds of races I end up registering for, too.

  6. I really want to try running the marathon distance over Christmas that you mentioned, but I think for my first go at it I’m going to try a half-marathon distance over that week period!

    By the way, as a fellow Canadian, how do you manage your outdoor runs once it starts to get snowy and icy? I’ve wondered about getting these spiked covers you can put on over top of your shoes, but I’m not sure they’ll work for running on pavement. I’d love to hear how you manage it!

    • You should try do run the marathon distance. You get to break it up over seven days. Check out #bltxmas42 on instagram.

      Good question about snowy runs. I usually wear yak tracks on snowy days. I’ll write a blog post about it soon.

      • I did a quick search for the hashtag, but couldn’t find anything!

        That would be awesome if you could! I don’t particularly want to give up my outdoor runs when it gets cold. I’ll check out the Yak Tracks in the mean time. Thanks!
