I ended September with a big adventure.
If you listen to my podcast, you already heard the story. Haven’t listened yet? Head over here.
But the basic rundown is, I headed out for a 15k trail run which turned into an almost 14.5 mile hike through sand. Think like loose beach sand. It took me almost 5 hours. It was an average of 96 degrees while I was out there. Would not recommend.
I ended September with 58 miles running and a handful of hiking miles. I completed three trails for my Every Damn Trail project. Not as much as I had hoped, but a good start with all the air quality issues. After Saturdays adventure, I have to rethink my attack plan. I don’t want to go back to that area, but there’s still two trails over there I need to do. I can get them from the main park entrance, but it makes for some longer runs. Definitely saving them for November and December when it’s cooler out!
I finished my 12 week weight training program (in August?) but haven’t restarted it yet. It’s been a struggle. I keep planning to start it, but then something comes up and I skip it. Maybe October will be my month to start lifting again! I need it!
I also have gotten off my food tracking. It’s another area I need to get back into doing. It’s so simple and easy. I just don’t do it. Another habit to get back into for the month.
October will be my start fresh month apparently.
I’m doing the Javelina Jallucinations with Aravaipa Running. It’s a challenge to run 100 (or more) miles from 9/28 – 11/1. Each week will have fun challenges and chances to win prizes. I love these challenges! I almost like them more than races. It’s a lot of fun to challenge myself to different things rather than just train for a half marathon or whatever.
