run to 500+500 :: november edition

1 more month to go…and my legs, knees and ankles are feeling it. i have been working hard trying to get these miles down. i am proud to say that for the majority of november i stayed away from the crumby treadmill. one day i even braved the rain and felt like a true athlete.

this month i enjoyed my second race of all time. i ran the 10k “run to feed the hungry” with jasen, matt and allie. great times. however…running the 10K was more challenging and not because it was twice as long. it felt really competitive and people were cutting you off and such. it has a totally different feel. but nonetheless…it was a proud accomplishment. my first 10K in the books.

since the race i have been doubting the accuracy of nike+. i know! can you believe it?! my results from nike+ were off by a whole kilometer. however…i have put in a whole mess of extra miles when my ipod wasn’t working…so i figured by that count…i should still be right on pace. but i was thinking if i wanted to run other races…i need to make sure i am training correctly. so i am asking for this for christmas:
e9ec34d851b14ddfa7bdb288b8e155b7

it is the garmin Forerunner 305 Personal Trainer w/Heart Rate Monitor. it is a watch about the size of my fist…but pretty sweet.

so for november:

87.47 miles

grand total: 909.39 miles with 90.61 miles to go in 31 days. that is 2.92290322581 miles a day.
