Running into Fall!

Happy first day of Autumn!
I'm back up and running again, beginning with today's Oktoberfest 5K. I admit after yesterday's training run around Lake Union (about 10 miles) I am feeling worked (as in sore). with any luck I will be fully recovered and ready for a slow and steady trot next week in Quilcene at the Oyster Half Marathon. Actually I'm more excited about the scenery, time with friends, and of course the after party. My personal performance is secondary. However that's not how I've felt about endurance challenges in the past. I've always been more of a competitor; though mostly with myself and therefore have pushed hard to reach new distance goals. Now I focus more on safe, effective goals; incorporating more variety in how I exercise and less running time. I'm happy with the half marathon distance and think it works for me personally. Especially since I'm more interested in exploring other challenging activities such as long distance bike touring.

Fall, being the season change means time to change my routine at the gym and think more about winter offerings for personal training and something I have always wanted to try teaching: ski conditioning!
