October Training

Training in October went well.  I’m happy with how things are ticking along.  Well, I’m not in peak fitness right now, I do feel as though I’m beginning to turn a corner from my break.

This month I don’t have a favorite race as each was special to me in a different way.

I’ve been slowly ticking away at both races and mileage.  At the beginning of the month, my fastest 5k since returning was 18:59, and in October I ran an 18:41.  While I’m not close to my PR yet (the last 30 seconds is the hardest), I am much closer than where I started in August.

Half marathon wise, I’m extremely pleased with the Runners World Half, and I could not have asked for a better race there.

What will November Bring?

November will begin fine-tuning my diet and working on the smaller things.  As most people know, I’ve been traveling for close to the last 2 weeks.  It’s been the time of my life, and I’ve been running, but I haven’t been working on diet and nutrition, and LOL at lifting weights and the smaller things too.  When I get back, I’ll begin fine-tuning the little stuff which will help get closer to PRs.
