October Running Round-Up

This was a big month in running for me. I feel like my resolution to run 500 miles in 2012 culminated in my half marathon. My numbers tapered off this month since I took a whole week off post-race but I still hit my 50 miles. Check it out!

Oct 2: 4.5 mi TM in 40:11
Oct 6: 3 mi OT in 29min
Oct 7: 12 mi (9out, 3tm) 2:02, not incl water breaks 
Oct 9: 4 mi OT in 40ish mins, side cramp and foot pain
Oct 10: 3 mi TM in 27:27
0ct 11: 2 mi OT in 19:00, cramp
Oct 14: 13.1 mi in 2:17 - Race
Oct 23: 3.25 mi TM in 29:54, tough post race run
Oct 25: 2.8 TM in 28 min, side cramp, knee pops
Oct 28: 3 mi RM in 25:36, shorter due to yoga back pain

Total: 50.65 miles

With the weather turning much colder outside, it's time to transition back to the treadmill. I love the treadmill but I was getting more used to running outside where I don't have anything pacing me. For these next cold months, I'm going to work on speed and hills. It's easy to get in a rut on the treadmill and I'd like to keep pushing myself as much as possible. Stay tuned!
