Closing Out November

November was a banner month in several ways.

First, I opened the month with a huge PR in the half iron triathlon distance while feeling good all race.

Then, after taking some good recovery time I had a 3+ minute PR at the 5K distance, where I managed to get my time down to its fastest since 1991.

The only downside was that November was the first month this year where I had a weight gain. However, since the weight gain was at 0.1 lbs, I can't really consider this too much of a negative--especially since I had just followed a recovery period and the Thanksgiving holiday.

If I remember correctly, I have achieved all but one of the goals I set out for myself for the year in my January blog entry. The one remaining seems out of reach, although I will still strive for that goal before my year-end accounting of my goals.

As we enter the last month, I am shifting my goals towards completing Ironman and focusing my attention on that goal.

170 days and counting....
