September was a phenomenal month for me! I returned to work on September 6th and managed to keep up with my training plan and hit two personal best times in races.

On September 10th, I PB'd at the Energizer 5K Night Race with a time of 26:50.

Two weeks later on September 24th, I PB'd at the Oasis Zoo 10K race with a time of 57:15.

My longest run was 20k which I ran with two lovely ladies around Milton. I kept up with the Running Room group and joined them on interval training. I have no doubt that this harder training has helped me to hit my time goals in the shorter races. McMillan is telling me that I can run a half marathon somewhere between 2:04 and 2:07 and I'm going to give a MRP run a try tomorrow during my long run. I have one month left before the Hamilton half and I'm going to use it to my advantage, training hard with quality runs.

September brought two more non-speed milestones for me: I hit 1,000km run on the year and I had my highest mileage month ever. Not bad considering I was worried what going back to work would do to my schedule!

  1. Nice going on such a great month!

  2. Going back to work clearly has not put a cramp in your running AT ALL! Congrats on the big milestones and PBs. Make it count for this last month!!
