And just like that another month flies by!
I was talking with a friend this morning and we were seriously wondering where this year went. It really feels like it was just March, how do we only have 2 months left of 2011?!
Onto my monthly recap…
I started October by crossing off one of my “fears” off my checklist and riding by bike up Mt. Diablo! That sadly is the last time I was on my bike. Oops.
I got a little muddy.
I got to run with Amanda from across the country.
Reflected on my DNS from the Portland Marathon, but was (and still am) happy to be looking forward.
I set a challenge to cross 2,000 miles for the year by the end of today, which didn’t come close to happening. Life, cross-training and being sick all got in the way. It will happen in November!
I took a trip south to San Luis Obispo, where I was caught running alone and got some much great feedback in the comment section about your feeling on running alone.
I ended up finishing off the month with a bunch of unplanned rest days from being sick. I still don’t feel that great, but after 4 days off I got one last run in tonight in order to pick up some essentials.
I ended October with 156.4 running miles and 4 hours of spin, 2 hours of yoga, and the 37 mile bike ride up Diablo. Not a bad month overall!
I am at 1928.7 miles for the year, which means I have just over 71 to go to get to 2,000.
How was your October?
