October Mileage & Goals

October was my big half marathon month. When I think back over the last 10 months I was really preparing to run a half marathon. It took me a few months to decide on which one I would do but once I committed and signed up, I was excited and then nervous!

Couldn't pass this up!

Couldn’t pass this up!

October numbers:

Total Mileage: 85km

Total Runs: 10 Doesn’t really sound like much! Ran outside and on the treadmill.

Race: 2   Valley Harvest Half Marathon and BLT 5K Fun Run

Longest Run: 21.33 km


Running happy around km 17 of 21.1

Soccer Games: 2 (Let’s just call these speed work)

Yearly Total: 932 km

I’m pretty happy with the amount of running I did in October. Even with taking 6 days off after my half marathon, I still managed a good number. I’m almost at my yearly goal of 1000 km and starting to wonder what I should aim for next year. I honestly didn’t think I would hit 1000 km in a year …. two months to go!
