First run of October. Took it easy. A nice slow jog as the sun was setting over North Bay in Lynn Haven. It rained most of the day and sprinkled on me a bit. Kind of liked it. Also, it was pretty windy with a storm system coming in over the Gulf and heading to the northeast.Looking back, I ran 52 miles in September. Not as good as August, but I also included a lot more cross training this month to save my legs. The longer runs this month (7 and 8 miles) were challenging - especially the 8 miler. I was really really slow and beat at the end of that one. I going to keep adding miles this month and distance, but will be putting the Galloway method to the test on the longer (5 miles plus) runs. I think that will be the only way to do this. My mantra of “No Walking” is no more. It should be “walking required, you idiot” instead.
Looking forward to another month of training, then the race in early November. Keep wishing me luck. . . .
