September Recap

Once again this report is oh so late.  I need to quit having a race right at the beginning of the month so that I can get the previous month's recap done first!  Or maybe I just have too much to do. 

Run:  50.6 miles 

For the past 3 months, I have hit the 50 mile mark.  I'm pretty pleased with that and I think that is a perfect number for me to try to maintain long term.  I am not a 100 mile/month-er and I never will be.  I think mentally, it would be too much to maintain, and also physically not the best for my body.  So this was a good month for running.

Bike:  170 minutes

Quite a bit less than July, and one good ride short of August.  With the days getting shorter, there just isn't enough time to get out on the bike.  I haven't gotten in the swing of spinning at the Y yet, but that will happen soon enough.  I think my riding outside time is pretty limited from here on out.  Back to the trainer I go.

Swim:  2000 yds

Lame.  Lame.  Lame.  This month was just too busy with the kids activities to get to the Y with any consistency.  Princess now takes dance twice a week and of course, one of the classes is on Friday.  My swim day.  Saturdays have been filled with field hockey and soccer and the Y has been closed on Sunday for summer hours.  After this weekend, the Y will now be open on Sunday so that will give me another day to be able to get my swim in.  I do miss it.

Tennis:  2 hours

Weights:  40 minutes

Races:   I scored a new PR at the Harborfest 5K held right in my hometown.

23:18 baby!

Things I'm Loving:

This weather!  Oh the weather!  For once the weather is *FANTASTIC* here in Maine.  Fuckin' fantastic!  Beautiful sunny skies, 65* temperatures, 45* at night.  Did I mention the sun?  It is so perfect.  I wish the weather could be like this every single day.  Well, actually, it has been for around 3 weeks now.  Perfect for just everything.  Field hockey--

Apple picking--


We couldn't ask for a better fall.

Music I'm Loving:


I am reading all things Jack Reacher right now.  I don't know if I'm late to the game with this series, but apparently, there are 15 or so books in this series by Lee Childs.  Jack Reacher is the bomb.  I've read Killing Floor and Trip Wire and I am currently reading Die Trying.  Thankfully, there are so many to read so I've got plenty of books to keep me occupied for awhile.

I'm so glad I don't really care about movies because I guess they've cast Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher, which is horrible considering Jack Reacher is supposed to be 6'5" and 250 lbs.  Did they not look at Tom when they cast him?  Jack deserves better.

Things I'm Hating:

I need a root canal and crown.   That sucks on so many levels--pain and misery, cost, missing work, cost, pain and cost.

On the bright side, once it's fixed, it's fixed.  I shouldn't have any more problems with it.

Have you read any of the Jack Reacher books?  What do you think about Tom Cruise playing him?

Have you had a root canal before?  Was it awful?

September was a busy month. And I'm mad at you for beating my 5K PR. Ok, not really...well maybe a little. :)
