october wrap (mm 21.7)

Despite being in Philly for over a week (extended rest week) I was happy to put in just over 100 miles for the month, with a fair amount of vertical gain. Dialing in the nutrition side of things–protein, fat and good oils for breakfast, protein smoothies and misc stuff for lunch, lightish dinner.  Avoiding gluten, soy, dairy (not all dairy) and sugar.  Training is coming along well, though I’ve noticed a little more soreness in the legs during the week.  Right knee is still somewhat cranky but has not gotten worse despite weekly mileage rising.  Going to get it looked-at soon (acupuncture!).  Definitely looking to add Towers Road as a weekly outing, maybe twice if possible.  Shooting for November to be in the 120 mile range which will require a solid three week push before the down week in Utah/AZ for Thxgiving week.  Feeling motivated and stronger.
