September was many kinds of weird. Vacation to start the month and I was injured yet again. Still, I closed out the month with a 27 day (and counting) step goal streak.
- 444,689 steps
- 190.7 miles run/walked
- 34.47 miles run. (Pace: 11:38. Run time: :25:11)
Yep, I’m very happy with that. Overall I hit some of my stretch goals, but not all. I think that’s a good month marker. I only had two days without goal.
- 1,386,041 steps
- 595.34 miles run/walked
- 108.86 miles run
That’s a nice increase above Q2’s totals and I hit two of the three Q3 goals and one of the subsequent stretch goals. I’m OK with not hitting the run one as I’m listening to my body and practicing smart healing. Only five days total below goal.
Year to Date:
- 3,775,858 steps
- 1628.48 miles run/walked
- 314.33 miles run
Wow. That’s better than 2015’s totals and I still have a full quarter to go!
- 400,000 steps
- 166 miles run/walked
- 50 miles run
- 2 days below goal
Yeah, that feels/looks like deja vu. But I think it’s a good baseline. I hope to more than exceed the first two and don’t expect to hit the third. It’s a goal to keep working toward as I heal and train. I am setting my time goal to 11:30. Doable? I think maybe? October’s 5m will probably be somewhere near September’s 10K, although much cooler I hope. But I had a 14:50 to start the month that I hopefully won’t have to work off in October
I’m not sure about Q4 goals yet. I mean bare bones is 1,200,000 as I really want to hit 400K each month. I think, as I did for Q3, I’ll probably set them one month in.
Maybe by then I’ll actually look at how far off I am on my reading goals. 60/91 read.
