October was quite a month for me! Wow!!!
October miles run: 104.564.39
October races: 1 (Mohawk Hudson River Marathon)
October days run: 10 (32%)
Shortest run: 2.15 miles
Longest run: 26.25 miles (marathon day)
Pain: Yes, there was pain. I trained to run a marathon and then walked the majority of the second half. My left calf is almost back to 100%. I had peroneal tendonitis in my left ankle previously and the marathon inflamed the tendon a little so the pain was back. All better now!
Looking forward: In November I have two "races" planned. The first is a 15K and I am not racing it. Frankly, I am not 100% sure I'm even going to try to run the whole thing (see "pain" above...calf hurts going up hills and this races has some hills). The purpose of signing up for the 15K was to keep me moving after the marathon and it worked! The second is an hour rafFal run. Last year they announced that the course record was an hour. I intend on going for the record this year. I think my winter running buddy Amanda is going to be there too so we'll have plenty of time to catch up.
