I haven’t done one of these in a while! I’m going to change the format a bit so stick with me. Here’s what went down in October AKA THE GREATEST MONTH OF THE YEAR.

My co-worker and I as The Shining Twins. We won the costume contest, naturally.

Swim:10 miles

Bike: 167

Run: 66 miles

Strength: 3 sessions

Races: Aquathlon National Championships, Ironman 70.3 North Carolina

I royally goofed at this race, but I still had a blast and would like to do it again next year.

Monthly Over View Thoughts: Since I raced my 70.3 in October there was a little bit of taper and then a lot of slacking post race, erm, I mean recovering. I’m still trying to get back into the swing of working out and working a regular full time job again but I’ve been a little lazy. I really need to get back on track!

Speaking of my job, I’m back to a regular 9 to 5. I had a great time working on that flex schedule but I was offered a position at an ad agency that I couldn’t pass up! I love it so far and am figuring out how I managed to do all my workouts with a 9 to 5 before. #ItsToughYall

Goals for next month: Increase my run volume and get back on the bike! I’m always really focusing on cleaning up my diet and dropping a few Halloween L-B-‘s.

Current TV/Books/Podcasts: Obviously I’ve been watching Stranger Things Season 2 and the first few Halloween episodes madeĀ  me super happy! I’m also watching Mindhunters as I love anything true crime. In fact, I found my people when I found the podcast My Favorite Murder. I’ve been binge-listening to that on my work commute. And I went to go see the live show here locally. *fangirl squealing* I even sprung for the meet and greet! Karen & Georgia were SO nice and the show could not have been better. #SSDGM

I don’t have a current book, I’ve been busy work reading and being a lazy couch lump. I will add one in though as I just got a recommendation for a book about a different version of events in Neverland…Can’t wait for that one to arrive.

I’m really looking forward to some upcoming running races and I really want to keep posting here as regularly as I can. So what’s up with you?
