October goals

Here's what I'm hoping (and planning) to accomplish for this month. I'm not positive I'll get it all in, with a taper for one marathon and then another happening this month, but here it is:

  • Swim #1: 5 miles (8047 meters).
  • Swim #2: Complete a one-mile time trial in the pool (using only freestyle stroke with bilateral breathing) for a benchmark to work on improving over the winter.
  • Bike: 140 miles.
  • Run and walk in workouts: 90 miles (including 26.2 miles in the marathon).
  • Crunches: 1000.
  • Events: Complete the Baltimore Marathon upright and smiling (as a final long run in preparation for the New York City Marathon in November)
  • Dream goal (optional!): Complete the Baltimore Marathon in under 5:40.

I think that should keep me busy!

I have to start laying out goals-I'm going to borrow some of your ideas and tweak them for my training plan. I'm sorry to hear about your daughter, that has to be stressful and difficult. She's such a cute little peanut too-that just stinks. Enjoy your taper-I look forward to reading your blog the next couple of days.

Great post. I especially like the idea of doing a time trial as a benchmark...I may steal that. :)

Those are S.M.A.R.T. :-)

I too like your one mile bench mark. Don't get too discouraged if you cheat a bit - one mile is a lot for bilateral breathing.
