October Recap

Month In Review:

Running: 10 runs, 2 races, 42.3 miles
Walking: 2 lunchtime walks, 5.4 miles
Challenge:  Pushups, Situps, and Squats 3 times a week (no squats the week before the Army 10 Miler)

Monthly Highlights:
  • Komen Race for the Cure: A great race with a PR.  It was challenging to navigate through all the walkers but a great run.

  • Army 10 Miler:  A disappointing time, but a win regardless.  This is the furthest race I've done and minus the injury, it was awesome.  I can't wait for next years!

  • I signed up for my first marathon (Shamrock Marathon March 20th 2011!).

  • Took an entire week off work just to enjoy the fall and relax.

  • No gout issues, and blood pressure staying down.  Only real health problem was pulled hamstring from race.

November Goals:
  • Run a Thanksgiving day race (undecided at the moment, several to choose from).

  • Allow pulled hamstring to fully heal and relax running until marathon training starts on November 29th.

  • Finish challenges and start another.

Good month. I'm glad one of your goals for November is to let your hammy heal. You'll need to be in tip-top shape for marathon training. :-)
