Running 26 days in a month is unusual for me, I usually have a few more rest days than that. September was really a slack month, under 400 kms shows I need to lift my game if some of the mountain running events coming up soon are to be completed successfully.
To do that, I need to increase, but only slowly and easily, the numbers of kms I run. Having 4 - 5 days off a month maintains freshness & assists with recovery.
Also assisting recovery is the cold water in the river at Pine Is. After a short run today, I had 12 minutes in the river. A few people in the area at the time must have thought I was mad, may be they are right. But it works. I can't afford the time off running because of preventative injuries.
A packed October and November have plenty of events, I want to run them all.
