September was an amazing month mileage wise. So much so that I even went back and double checked the numbers. This was a pretty big month, training wise. Not only was I pushing towards Giant Acorn, but I also needed to get my mileage up for this weekend’s Army Ten Miler.
I can’t say that I felt like I was putting in a lot of miles. I was just making sure to put in the time and get in my workouts. Clearly those small things add up.
Swim – 8.3 miles
Bike – 124 miles
Run – 63 miles
63 miles on the run! That’s insane! That’s higher mileage than I’ve had in so long. I used to aim for 50 mile months, so 63 miles feels crazy. I did go through a bit of a struggle where my quad started to knot up again, but that has been pretty easily resolved with some regular work on the foam roller. Almost every day, I spend about 20-30 minutes on the foam roller, focusing only on my lower body and mainly on my left side. It’s my excuse to play on my phone.
Swim – 48.3 miles
Bike – 1313 miles
Run – 155 miles
