Training for 10/31/13

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 4:59 pm

Happy Halloween!

This morning, I did one last 3-miler on the road with Pepper. It was an awesome morning for a run here, and Pepper took a stick with him that was already in our yard after he brought it home from a run a couple of days ago, so he was moving pretty quick the whole way.

And with that, I’m all set for Indy in two days!

I’m flying to Indy tomorrow morning with my friend Allison. We’ll meet about 10 or so more people out there. We’ll all do packet pick-up tomorrow afternoon (found out today my bib number is 5621), eat an early dinner and go to bed early.

Our hotel is close to the start/finish line, and it’s an 8 a.m. start, so I don’t think I’ll be getting up too early. After I’m done with the half, I’ll be hanging out while we wait for the full marathoners to finish. Saturday night should be a lot of fun. Allison’s birthday is Sunday, so we’re celebrating. The time rolls back an hour that night, so we’ll get to celebrate extra hard. And then we’ll fly home Sunday.

Since today is also the last day of the month, I must do my October summary.


  • Week 1 (Oct. 1-5): 8.5 miles
  • Week 2 (Oct. 6-12): 18
  • Week 3 (Oct. 13-19): 20.8
  • Week 4 (Oct. 20-26): 23
  • Week 5 (Oct. 27-31): 10.5

Total: 80.8 miles

Another bummer mileage month, but, on the bright side, it’s still more than I ran in September, and the numbers came up as the month progressed, instead of starting high and crashing.

As far as racing went, I did that “5K” that was only 2.6 miles at the beer festival, and then I ran that horrible 10-miler last weekend. So, not a very strong month by that measure haha.

Looking ahead to November, obviously I have a half marathon in Indy in two days. After that, I’ll decide what I want to shoot for in the Rehoboth half in a month, and plot out my training accordingly. I also want to do the Ravens vs. Steelers 5K in Ocean City on Nov. 23 — we have to defend the Ravens’ title — and the Huffin’ for Pumpkin Pie race we always do the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
