October is over! Let's hope the cursed month is out of the way. What should have been my 'peak' month turned out to be my lowest mileage month of the year. Ouch! Very few miles with the dogs, no miles on real trails. I was able to run a marathon, thought I was cured and then discovered my cranky knee. I cut miles again, skipped a race and ate a lot of Halloween candy. The good news is I believe the knee is finally getting better. I'm still taking it super easy but I also ran 7 days in a row last week. Maybe that wasn't smart but they were all very short runs 3-5 miles in length and then 8 miles on Saturday. At this point, it's less than 2 weeks to the JFK 50 miler and certainly nothing else I can do to prepare myself this late in the game. I have a feeling November 17th is going to be a day of chasing cut-offs and just hoping I can somehow find the mental strength to keep myself moving and hope, hope, hope I can finish the race.
