November Already?

October Goals (Recap)
  • Run twice a week outside of racing (minimum). SUCCESS! I ran all scheduled runs.
  • Get a 20 mile run in. SUCCESS! Did a 20 mile run (16 loops around a lake!)
  • Try for another PR, but at minimum keep all half marathons this month sub 2:10. SUCCESS TIMES TWO!! PR'd the course in Maine, then beat THAT when I raced in Alaska. All races were sub 2:10. 
  • Fix my foot. SUCCESS! Not sure what I did, but I continued to ice every night, whether I was running or not.
  • Be a badass at the Athens Marathon - SUCCESS TIMES 26.2!! I did much better than I ever hoped I could!
November Goals
  • Continue running twice a week outside racing.
  • Try for another PR (of course), but keep both races this month sub 2:10.
  • Start working on Yasso 800s again. Start from ground zero since I haven't done them in over a month.
  • Stay healthy!!
  • Not running related - GET.A.JOB. :( Still unemployed.
My goals this month are pretty simple. I am entering a month where I have very little racing, so hopefully I can start incorporating some speed work back into my training. I have continued doing hill training on the treadmill at least once a week, and I really think that has helped immensely during some of these races that are not "flat and fast."

As an aside, I'm only a little over 75 miles away from running 1,000 miles this year. How cool is that??
