It's that time of year, after all. What would you be drinking? I'm going with a chai latte' (big surprise, I know), but feel free to pour yourself whatever you desire. It's always fun to get together and chat about life (in general) and running (in particular).
Anyways, let's chat.
First of all, if we were having a warm drink, I'd tell you about my October. I carefully eased back into a regular running routine. I utilized some walk breaks at first, but really didn't seem to need them after the first couple weeks. My October (running) mileage came it at 70.5 miles, which is comparable to what I'd be running anyways (had there not been a surgery a few months prior). I also had some monthly goals to focus on, most of which went well...but I did catch myself slacking off a bit in the final days. I made my planking goal of 150 (cumulative) minutes, and the early morning cardio happened every morning (often times it was just a 15-20 minute walk around the neighborhood). Everything else stayed constant until the final week or so (#fulldisclosure).
