For those of you new to this spot on the interwebs, November is National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) where participants try to challenge themselves to write a blog post every day. Some years I’ve succeeded gloriously, other years I’ve failed before the first week was done.
BUT EVERY YEAR I TRY.
So today is the first day! And I’m going to do a short wrap-up about my training in October. I completed 250 miles this month! THAT IS INSANE. I did two 60+ mile weeks! I’m tired and sore but I feel GREAT mentally. I’ve had my eating and my exercise on track and those two things help my mood enough that I can control my anxieties and my depression with my own resources. Training has given me the focus I wasn’t expecting and this month has just been great all around.
Of course, I can’t really walk right now because one knee gave me problems yesterday so I weighed heavier on the other leg causing me a shin splint but…BUT…MENTALLY I’M KILLING IT.
I’m hoping November will kick JUST AS MUCH ASS. Both with my training, and with my blogging.
Here’s to NaBloPoMo 2016!

Congratulations on your training successes! You are doing amazing things and definitely getting faster! Take care of that knee and shin. I exceeded my goal of 50 miles this week. I ran 53 miles because I did my math wrong this morning 🙂 I could have stopped earlier on the pre-NRLB miles! I’m pretty happy about it, but am not walking too well either. I’m stiff!
YAY! NaBloPoMo is my favorite!!! 🙂
