September Totals

Surprisingly, this was not my peak month for the year! In the heat of August I actually ran more miles. Weird. In my defense, this month includes one taper week. Next month will probably be much lower, especially considering the packed schedule Nick and I have coming up (upcoming weekends: wedding, marathon, high school reunion, another wedding, Punkin Chunkin). My legs feel ok. My weird hamstring/knee twanging feeling has not gone away, but luckily it has only gotten a little worse. It is sometimes sore when I wake up in the morning, and I notice a bit of stiffness/soreness throughout the day, almost every day. It feels worst when I first start out running, but goes away after a few minutes of warming up. So who knows. I wish it would just go away, but overall I'm not terribly concerned right now, as long as it's not causing me much pain. Cross your fingers I can live 10 more days like this.

Also, I'm at 908 miles for the year! I am so proud of myself. My arbitrary goal of 1000 miles seemed unreachable during the early slowpoke months this year, but it looks like I'll be pulling it off after all. I realize that's I just committed to EVER running again after this marathon, but I'm pretty confident my spirit won't be completely broken by the race. But you never know.
