Ba De Ya, Say Do You Remember. Ba De Ya, Dancing in September.
Wellllll, how do you like that? It's October already. September was a transition month for me. I went from longer road rides, to shorter, more intense off-road and trainer rides to get ready for cyclcross season...And I raced almost every weekend this month.
So, here are my monthly stats -
Running - 60.63 miles
Cycling - 458 miles
Trainer work-outs - 2 @ 1/2 hour a piece.
Swims - none
Races - 7 - 1 gravel time trial, 1 duathlon and 5 cyclocross races.
Organized touring rides - 1 - the Culinary Ride.
Number of different bikes ridden: 5 of my 6.
Books read: 6 - "The Jungle Book" by Rudyard Kipling, "Shirley", by Susan Scarf Merrell, "The Haunting of Hill House", by Shirley Jackson, "Tigerman", by Nick Harkaway, "An Untamed State", by Roxane Gay, and "A Hologram for the King", by Dave Eggers.
Paintings or Drawings started or finished: Zero. I am planning to make that a priority in October.
House projects started or finished: Zero. Again, I'll try to make that a priority in October too.
Towns we traveled to for races: 4 - The Amanas, Pella, Cedar Falls and Des Moines.
So, how was your September? What things didn't you get around to that you're SURE you'll start on in October?
