september was an AWESOME month.
i ran 200.75 miles.
my biggest month to date.
973.50 miles so far this year.
only had 6 rest days this month.
my highest mileage week was 9/13-9/19 with 52.84 miles
i had 3 long runs this month; 16 mi w/12MP, my second 20 miler, & 18 miles
i raced the smokey bear 10k
50:55...a PR
went through some rough patches this month mentally,
but came through stronger than ever,
and more determined.

today i had 9 mi w/5x1000m @ 4:47 (RI 3:30)
i ran 4 warm up miles outside and ran the intervals on the treadmill
intervals went like this:
4:50, 4:49,4:47(HR168),4:47(HR169),4:44(HR170)
then one mile cooldown.
i heart intervals.
i love when i'm dripping with sweat.
and today was no different.
i was SOAKED. sweat dripping off the brim of my hat.
and dripping from my shorts.
 seriously drenched.
tmr is a rest day.
friday 12 miles
sat 6 recovery miles
sun 18mi w/14@MP (8:50)...going for broke on this one

then i have two more high mileage weeks before i start my taper.
i'm thinking about running another 10k in a couple weeks,
this one is here in fresno,
and is pancake flat.
haven't made up my mind yet.
we'll see.
