September Mileage & October Goals

Another month, another list of numbers to add up. I was hoping September would be a little more active but life happens and sometimes you are forced to slow down.

Even with missing my half, I was still active. The highlight would be a toss up of running my last long run of 18k (early September) and running 13k at Cape Split with my husband. If I had to chose one of those to do this weekend – I’d chose Cape Split with Saï – it’s just so beautiful and to be honest, I love running with him.

I mean really….this is the view at Cape Split!


September Goals:

HA! I almost want to laugh at my goals for September! Some I accomplished and some I didn’t. I did try!

  • Back to school (celebrate!) – Yeah!
  • Run Maritime Race Weekend Tartan Twosome (5k & Half marathon) – NOPE.
  • Keep running post half marathon. Well, I did run later in the month, does that count?
  • Ride my bike more – maybe 50 km of cycling. – Nope, na-ta!
  • Bullet Journal my running. – YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve been loving the #journaltherunproject on IG during the last two months.


October Goals:

  • Pace Valley Harvest 10k – 1:10 finish time – Oct 8th.
  • Enjoy time with family (especially on Thanksgiving – Oct 8th).
  • Visit Pumpkin People and do a Corn Maze with our girls.
  • Complete October’s “Journal the Run Project”.
  • Continue to get my back/chest better (related to car accident from back in March).

All ready to put my mark on October!


How was your September?

Any goals for October? It is a BIG race month after all!

August Mileage & September Goals

August was a busy, busy month! I had set a goal of 100 km basically as a lofty goal but actually managed to meet it!

We started off August on vacation and ended it on vacation; played lots of soccer between both girls and I, and just hung out a lot together. We had one injury but it wasn’t me! My husband fractured his left arm cycling, so he’s on the injured list.


August Goals:

  • Run 100 km – Yes, 101 km!
  • Go on a LONG bike ride. I did one 23k ride but was hoping for further.
  • Finish my frigging book. Nope! I’m officially giving up.
  • Work on strength training to complement my running. Yoga & soccer count, right?
  • Camping – Sadly this didn’t happen. Each opportunity we had to do this it rained.
  • Paddling. This got rained out too – so disappointed.

I also started bullet journaling properly in August. Though it wasn’t a goal for August, it’s been something I’ve been wanting to do and finally managed to pull it off!


September Goals:

  • Back to school (celebrate!).
  • Run Maritime Race Weekend Tartan Twosome (5k & Half marathon) Sept 15/16.
  • Keep running post half marathon.
  • Ride my bike more – maybe 50 km of cycling.
  • Bullet Journal my running.

Honestly, I’m so sad to see August end. Summer feels over and done with and the cooler temps have already started. I’ve been wearing pants and sweaters for a few days – yuck! I think I’m one of the few that want a few more weeks of the heat (don’t hate me).

How was your month of August?

Any goals for September?

Anyone have a BIG race coming up?
