1.8 with my oldest. It has gotten colder the past few days. I don't mind the cooler weather and actually enjoy it.

Did a little warmup and some plyos before doing a few strides. Then a short cool down. My oldest has been wanting to go out and run every day this week. It has been fun getting out with her.

It was a nice sunny day. I did 4.5 on my own on my Walgreens-Wabash loop in 33:30 (7:27/mile). It had been awhile since I ran that loop. My legs have felt fine, and this has been a pretty good week so far.

I ran 0.5 with my two oldest and then 0.9 with my oldest. I then added another 1.5 on my own. Thanks to the time change, it was already dark by the time I did my run.
