It seems like yesterday we were ringing in 2015 and counting down the days until the WDW Marathon.
And now, just like that, it’s October. This is the week we start decorating for fall and Halloween, and I stare at my calendar in disbelief, because so many dates are jam-packed with activities in anticipation of the holidays.
We’re in the final stretch of the year.
September has been pretty great. It started off with a holiday and a half marathon, and ended on a high note with lots of really productive runs and some very consistent and dedicated cross-training, if I do say so, myself.
Here’s how the month worked out:
- Running: 52 miles (a little lower than August, because of taper and recovery)
- Body Circuit: 6 hours
- Swimming: 200 meters (alongside little man in preparation for his triathlon)
- Cycling: ~10 miles (training with little man, and to and from body circuit)
- Races: 1 (Virginia Beach Half Marathon)
Not bad. I’ve got about two months until my goal race and I’m fairly certain that I will be looking at a lot more miles and hours, courtesy of my coaches. It hasn’t been easy, and I think I’ll be a little less discouraged when the weather cools down (I’m hoping it won’t be too much longer!)
How was your September?
What are some of your upcoming fitness goals? Are you on track to hit them?
