It's September Already?!?!

So the last four months have really blasted by.  The kids are back in school and we are in the middle of the fall running season.  Unfortunately, my wife and I have opted to not do the Long Beach Marathon this year for other nearby races.  She is doing her first duathlon in two weeks and I am debating on my next trail half.

There is definitely a crisp fall chill in the air, which has made for some nice runs at lunch.  Beth has been running the trails out of Castle Rock while I have been running the Embarcadero.   So you can already tell that she is going to be light-years ahead on the next trail run.  We also began the Asylum training.  I am not really big on some of the programs advertised through infomercials; however, we have had several friends  try the likes of P90X as well as Beth and I trying Insanity.  What has me intrigued is that it should help with my flexibility and agility as well as being a 30 day program (which of course you repeat); which is something I really need improvement in if I am ever to break the 8-minute half marathon audacious goal that I have. 

You see, I need major help again with my core.  For some reason riding my bike 60 to 80 miles a week and running between 20 to 35 miles a week hasn't done the job in the toning and weight department. I weigh the same as I did 4 months ago while eating the same. So expect a weekly update on how that is going.

So short and sweet this week.   Have a fun run!!
