The End of October

Fig's new hat

My running finally appears to be getting back on track. I had a decent race at Allerton. It's only three days into November and I've already run half of my total October mileage. I might as well run another marathon, right? Don't worry, it's a trail marathon (Tecumseh, December 5th) so it won't beat me up as badly. At least, that's the theory under which I am presently working.

Yikes! 10 months into 2009 and I still have less than half the mileage on the bike as I did in 2008. I need to get on the ball here.

On the bright side, I bought a new bike frame for racing in triathlons and time trials. It's titanium and it weighs three pounds. Now all I have to do is buy the remaining components, assemble the bike, sell my old Litespeed (which you'll notice does not even appear in the table below, meaning I haven't ridden it a single time this year). Oh, and train so I don't totally embarrass myself.

Yeah, I need a nap too

Unfortunately, the cold weather has kept me from walking as much with Will as I did during the summer. I have started walking to work a couple times per week in order to get a few extra non-running miles into my legs before this trail marathon.

Congrats on the new bike. Frame. Did you buy Betenia's Lynsky? Build it up and train as much as you can over the winter. I've found the TT position takes some getting used to!
