October was a recovery month from the Akron Marathon, I know there are people out their that can run marathon every weekend, well, my body and I are just not one of them. So I use Hal Higdon's Post Marathon Training Plan, to get me back into running, I was fine with my recovery no excess pain or injury. Joined the Crooked River Trail Group for trail run and the Towpath Turtles for some long ones on Sundays. Added back strength training and paying closer attention to my weight, I think I got flabby during marathon training, did a 5 miler trail race and wasn't very happy with the result but had fun none the less.
101.2 miles for October, leaving me with 197.8miles to reach 1000 miles for the year which will be my first time getting there, the biggest goal thou is to continue to train smartly since this will be the first year that my body is almost injury free , with 4 races yet to do and I am beginning to put together my plan for next year.
