October was a great month. Even though I was coming off the injury, I ran 3 1/2 marathons, got to meet some new blogger friends and see old ones, and celebrated my birthday several times. It was pretty fabulous.
Miles Planned/Actual: 0/69 Again, no REAL plan for the month of October. MUCH better than I ever expected. My PT rocks. Seriously, if you live in Atlanta, see Kris at The Sports Rehab Center.
Cross Training Planned/Actual: 0/9. feel the burn and pilates. was out of town a lot and didn’t get to the gym as much.
PR’s: 0. But each race was a time improvement for me!
New to Me Cross Training: 1/1 Feel the Burn class. I LOVED it. Maybe even more than TRX.
Challenges Completed: 0/0 Didn’t plan on doing any this month
Current Aches/Pains: the ankle. it’s very close to 100%. I can feel it when I get up in the morning and at the end of long days-especially longer runs+errands type of days. That seems to be too much in one day for it. Each race has gotten easier though, so that is good.
Current Book: yep. Let that slip right by. AGAIN. I did download Gone Girl but haven’t read it yet. Played magazine catch up.
Current Obsession: the holidays. and getting my house complete. FINALLY.
Current Drink: Rotating all NUUN flavors at the moment. Surprisingly like the Strawberry Lemonade and Banana combo that P created. Also, lots of beer during football season.
Current Like: that I can run again. Excited to start actually training instead of just easy runs with no plan.
Current Dislike: not having enough time. A lot going on with work, holidays, baby showers, etc. My life feels like one big to do list right now, and that isn’t really fun. Hoping it all slows down soon.
Current Treat: Yoforia. It has seriously become me and P’s sunday night treat. Me: Pumpkin and cheesecake with graham cracker crumbs and dark chocolate chips. P: a hodgepodge of everything you can try. Seriously, men don’t do things that flow. They want to try it all. Have you noticed this?
Current Excitement: a weekend in Huntsville, going to Mobile for Thanksgiving, and a possible 5K. Haven’t done one of those in a year and a half!
How was your October? How do you get through the holiday stress? Do you host Thanksgiving or travel?
