October Running Stats: Need More Miles

October was an OK month for my running, but I slipped behind on my overall running miles. Still, no injuries and no illnesses, so it could have been worse. Continued my focus on speed and 5K races which saw my longest run distance shrink. I did knock out two solid 5K races. And my elevation gain, while still low, inched higher. More miles and more elevation gain coming in November! Time to transition to ultra mode. And trail mode. 

Here are October vs September running statistics:

I ran two 5Ks in October, the Illinois Homecoming (20:10 for 3-mile short course, 25/306 finishers, 1st in age group) and Heartland Harvest (20:38, 2/90 finishers, 1st in age group). Almost done with 5Ks. In December, I have the Clinton Lake Winter Solstice 30M run. Then January Riddle Run 28M. Time for ultra training. Long slow runs on trails instead of short fast runs on roads.
