October Training Update

October was my best month of training this year. It was the first time I've run 200+ miles in one month since June 2007. I had three training runs of 22 miles or more, raced three times for a total of 17 miles and did four, 5 mile tempo runs. Even though I’m still pretty slow, the short races and tempo runs have improved my overall speed. My long runs were a little on the light side for 50 mile prep but there’s no reason to worry about that now. The training is done and I’m in my final taper for Saturday’s Stone Cat 50 mile adventure. I have no control over the weather but I wouldn’t complain if the day turns out to be sunny and 50 degrees. Who would?

Monthly Recap:

Total Miles: 202
Longest Run: 23
# of Runs: 24
Avg. Run: 8.4
Trail Miles: 93%


  1. What a great monthly number. Have a super race this weekend.

  2. That is a really solid month. Good luck at Stone Cat. I was initially registered to run the 50, but decided last week that it was too soon after Javelina 100. Enjoy.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my site. Best of luck at Stone Cat!
