For those keeping track, this is two months in a row of new lows. Let's get to the numbers! Here's last month's statistical rundown:
- Total Miles: 6 miles (2 runs)
- Total Time: N/A
- Highest Weekly: 6 miles
- Average Weekly: 1.5 miles
- Average Pace: N/A
- The Monthly Dif: -17 miles (23 miles in July)
So far, all of my training runs have been barefoot. The biggest challenge was yesterday's four-mile run on the Towpath, which features a surface full of tiny pebbles with some recently fallen buckeyes added in for kicks. My feet felt numbed from the excessive stimuli for a good half hour after we finished.
This was my longest run since I ran five miles on July 4.
To save us from doing too much too soon, the training plan consists of a rest day after each run day. Once my wife gets the OK from the doctor, we'll probably add some tennis into the mix as cross training.
Countdown to Race Day: 25 days!
