PM/Evening: 4 hours 10' on the gravel bike. 182W. HR 139.

Weather was pretty ideal for November, upper 40s and sunny and not too much wind. Did a roll to downtown Fenton and back. Lots of deer out trying to avoid their deaths. Planned on 3 hours, but went a bit farther. I am glad I brought my extra light as the one I had charged around lunch and nap time went dead immediately. I held off as long as I could and switched them. Made it home just fine thankfully. It was very dark, about an hour after sunset. 

Pace wasn't fast but I didn't plan it it being fast. Wanted it quite easy. My endurance really hasn't gone anywhere, which is good. Need to keep up 3-4 hour rides throughout the year on the weekends, or at least most weekends with hopefully one four-hour ride per month as I wont be riding as frequently.

Lunch: 7.1 miles, averaged 9:12. HR 145.

PM: 60' on the trainer. 196W. HR 127.

I was going to run again, but the cold and dark wasn't sounding too inviting. I figure as long as my overall combined volume is solid and I get my midweek workout and long run in and a longer ride of 3-4 hours at least most weeks I'll start really building some fitness. 

Looking forward to getting back into running workouts this week and testing to see where my fitness is at after absorbign the half marathon.

Evening: 120' on trainer. 216W. HR 134. 

Ended up napping when the boys did, so I skipped anything at lunch. Got this in pretty late, but it was good to get it in.

20' @ Half Marathon Pace Minus 10" + 6 x 1' On/Off

6:32 pace @ 178 BPM. I did not have a ton of turnover, but this was about what the workout was supposed to be. I think I was running 10 x 2' at about this in September with almost not workouts since then, so this was pretty good. A touch under 6' pace for the 1' intervals. 

PM: 60' on the trainer. 191W. HR 131. 

Boys went to their friend's in the afternoon as she didn't have school.

Good recovery run before Thanksgiving. We drove down to Toledo after the boys nap and had a good dinner and evening with Chas.

We visited Megan's parents and one of her friends and then had a party later in the evening. I put myself to bed pretty early. Didn't eat enough.

Needed to do my long run/workout but just couldn't be bothered. Ended up drinking.
