Combine that with the sudden demise of my trusty Caravan and subsequent dealings with loaner car and shopping for a replacement, training volume this month was at a yearly low. In fact, the last time I managed less hours than this month was last October, so it seems to be a down-month for me historically.
Combine that with Thanksgiving and Halloween, and I typically put a few pounds back on; no exception this time!
I did add calisthetics back to my routine however. Kieran and I started doing the 100-pushup challenge, and we threw in a weekly round of pullups for good measure. Damn that little boy is strong! Gonna have to keep him in check before he starts making me look bad!
Highlights for October:
- Bow Cycle Cross - worn out tires, couldn't stay upright.
- Beans N' Barley race - snow! Nuff' said.
- 7 Runs, 66 kms, 5:30 hrs.
- 13 Strength Workouts, 4:30 hrs.
- 17 Rides, 285 kms, 16 hrs
- Cyclocross: 6:30 hrs
- Indoor: 5:45 hrs
- Road: 4:15 hrs
