Thoughts: So changing it up a bit here this week as I’m going to share my overall run commuting thoughts in this section prior to cost analysis. Each week I am sure that there will be mental and physical struggles and this is no better place to share them. Plus a spot to share some of my other experiences on the trip.
This was a short week of run commuting as I took three day’s vacation with my wife training for her new job. This was one of the first times where one vehicle made a difference. Still would have taken the time off but with only a van I had to be everyone’s driver.
When it came to running to work this week, what a difference a week makes. This past week saw some unseasonably warm temps. Felt good as I didn’t need to wear as many layers. Certainly can say the trip is getting easier.
With my run commuting limited to two days I still ran on my normal work days. Knowing that I would only be able to squeeze in one run I increased the mileage. Also on my first day off I hit the hills for repeats. With my racing goals I will have to find a way to add some into the commute.
Although it was a short week of run commuting it was a good week.

Expenses: No new expenses but I may add in all running and racing expenses to the ledger. Curious to see if my eliminating driving will balance out all costs in relation to my running.
Savings: Only two days of running reduced my total savings. Can’t justify the other days as savings.
Even being off I managed to only have coffee at home. Even managed to not make an additional pot.
