After a low mileage month in September due to my surgery and flu, I had a very good month training in October. main highlights of the month were
- A strong 50M race
- Consistent 50mpw runs
- Good LT runs
- Good long runs
Overall it was a very rewarding month, Almost executed my training plan, totaling about 220 miles in total. By end of the month it was pretty clear I was not in shape for a 3:10 marathon but I can get pretty close, I wanted to decide based on my performance at Run with the Jets Half marathon. That race did strongly indicate chasing 3:10 was'nt a realistic goal so did shift my goal for CIM to 3:15.
