    October goal is going to be 97 miles. I plan to finish out the training plan for a marathon on 10/21 and then stop for the month/ year. After this last race for 2017, I'll change focus to fat loss. I've already achieved and exceeded all of my running goals for 2017, but my fat loss goal is still illusive and may be a challenge. I already have scheduled a Dexa scan on 12/30 to see whether or not I achieved my goal of 10% body fat. I still believe it is possible, but difficult... that is why I'm going to put more focus on weight loss and not worry about running.


    10/1 - Rest

    On the same wave length as @MNLittleFinn today apparently as I also cut it short to feed the fam (though I was mean to my children and made them omelettes instead of pancakes, they'd have been hella jealous). Now to go grocery shopping!

    I'd like to join in! I'm very new to running so my goal will be quite low. I'm still completing C25K and I did about 32 total miles in September, including walking warm ups and cool downs. If it's okay, I think I'll continue tracking total miles.

    October goals:
    Complete C25K
    Run a 5k (28Oct - haven't registered yet, a little gun shy)
    40 total miles

    Welcome! go ahead and register for the 5k, you'll be ready when the time comes. Finishing C25K is a great goal, and your mileage goal is very reasonable. you got this!
