September Recap

I am starting to get excited as the months fly by because I love Christmas! I can't believe that Costco already has their Christmas stuff out. I usually like to take it easy at the end of the year approaches but I kind of have a feeling that is not going to go down like that. I have a marathon in less than two weeks and a half marathon with my other half a month after that. I usually run a race for fun in the month of December but I haven't registered for anything yet. Some of my friends are running the Divas Half Marathon which looks like a lot of fun so I might just allow them to talk me into it. 

So what went down in September? 

1. I had a birthday but we won't do any number analysis on that topic! 


2. I ran 127 miles in September which is about average for me. September mileage was much less than August but I am still going to call it a good month. It was solid and I had some great runs. I have been trying to keep my weekly mileage between 30-35 miles and I have been able to stick with it. I am always excited when my long runs go well and those have been pretty solid.


3. I also ran a half marathon in 80 degree heat but it was at the Happiest Place on Earth so I guess I can't complain!

 What are my plans for October?
 
I don't have any big plans for October except to survive the Long Beach Marathon on October 13th. I can't wait to start stalking the weather on Friday when the 10-Day Forecast will be available! I am hoping to be able to take it easy the week after this race. I think I owe it to my body to give it a break especially after 26.2 miles!

How was your September?

There are so many marathons coming up in October. Anybody running Chicago? BayState? MCM?

    1. Thank you Marcia. It has been a great year but I know that I still need to be careful and cautious with my running. The minute I think I am doing well and start to push something will happen. I am very thankful and want to stay healthy and injury free for my goal race in May, 2014.

    1. Thank you! I try to stick to a schedule that I am used to since my time is limited on the weekdays! Those weekday runs are the toughest!
