September Recap

September 2012 will go down in the books as a incredibly mediocre fitness month with one huge deviation from that mediocrity.  Namely, I sat on my ass a bunch, but ran a marathon.

September Recap

Miles Ran: 90 (exactly the same as August!)

Cross Training Workouts Completed: Uhh, zero?  Would you believe zero?  First time for everything...

Meters Swam:  0.  Awesome.  

Highest Run Mileage Week: 34 <------- highest mileage week ever, unless you count running all of that at one time...

Upcoming Races: One yet-to-be chosen 5k.

Current Triumph:  I ran my first marathon.  And I lived to write about it.

Current Goals:  

  • 31 DAY STREAK!!! Clearly, I need some extra motivation... so I am going to shame myself into getting in at least one workout every day during the month of October.  
  • Use marathon recovery time wisely, not lazily.

    Last Month's Goals:  
    1. Well, I've got this full marathon thing going on in a few weeks... my first.  So I guess not to die.  Or cry too much. - Woo!  Did it!
    2. Start a new class at the Y. - I suck.
    3. GET BACK IN THE POOL!  :) I suck again.

    2012 Goals


    • Run 1,000 miles in 2012  - This one just wasn't smart this year with rehabbing from my stress fracture... so new goal:
    • Run 400 miles from September - December: - 90 so far!
    • Run a sub 1:55 half marathon  - 1:55 and change.  I'm counting it.
    • Get a new 5k PR - current PR 23:17 - Done!  22:43!
    • Run Ragnar Madison to Chicago relay -  Done!  6/8/12
    • NO MORE STRESS FRACTURES! - through October- none so far!  

      • Join Toastmasters to face my fear of public speaking. - I went to one meeting, but haven't taken the plunge.
      • Pass the ACSM Certified Personal Trainer exam - Got my CPT!
      • Knock out at least eight items on my "Fear Can Suck It" list. - Completed so far: 6!!! Including the all important #15.  :)
