4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

Sept 2010 in Review

Running – 84.7 miles over 13 runs.  Probably not as many miles as I would like in my last month before a marathon, but it was my second consecutive month over 80 miles, so I’ll take it.  At 764.8 miles, I am still on target for my goal of 1000 miles for the year.  I’m very pleased that every month this year has been over 70 miles.   That is off-the-charts amazing for me, and previously thought unthinkable!  In fact, with 3 months to go in the year, I’ve out-run every single year in my history besides last year, when I only had another 36 miles, with 801 for the year.  Quite an accomplishment for me!

Races – 1 (NYC Marathon Tune-Up – 3:15:54)

Biking – 70.7 miles over 3 rides.  50 miles came in a single day, when I went up to Piermont, over Labor Day weekend.  I’ve only been on the bike once in the last 3 weeks, which is no good as I have a triathlon coming up this weekend!  I have 485 miles for the year, which keeps me on target for my other goal of 1500 run/bike miles for 2010.  485 is also the most bike miles I’ve had in any year since I bought the bike in 2007.

Swims – 1 – Definitely not enough triathlon training for this weekend!

Gym workouts – none

Softball – 2 wins!

Injuries – Back spasm (mild) set me back 3 days.  Also badly messed up my pinkie toe after the 18 mile race.

Sicknesses – none
