<p>I've got your chart right here, buddy:</p>

<p>First, the good news: After a roller-coaster summer, September was a good month. Nothing but sinkers since falling off the wagon after labor day.) I also had a 275 weigh-in on Saturday. Lowest since May.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Bad news is that I'm missing the goal weight trend. If I don't catch up my the ides of October, I'll have to re-assess things.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>October will be interesting. Cooler weather means I can run faster. Marine Corps Marathon is on the 30th. If I continue getting sinkers through Oct then I'll be lighter than I've ever been for a marathon, and tempo-training has been rock-solid. Long runs have still been lacking though. Trying to decide if I want to focus on weight-loss or long runs this month.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>If I really focus on weight loss, I can still keep my weekly mileage at around 40 with two-a-days and maybe lose as much as 20lbs before the marathon which is in four weeks. If I focus instead on training, I can probably get my mileage as high as 60 but will only lose 5 lbs or so, assuming I'm past the plateau. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm leaning towards weight loss. MCM will itself be a long run, and then I'll have all of November and half of December for more long runs before the ATY taper. I can't help but wonder if weight loss will be more important to my performance at ATY than even LSDs, especially with average daily mileage up around 6-7, which is twice as high as it's ever been before, not counting long runs. </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>

<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>My goal at ATY, by the way, is 200 miles. Last year I achieved 106 at 320lbs without training at all (I had a single run (2 miles!) the entire month of December up until ATY.) So even though I recognize that there's a huge difference between 106 and 200, I think it's achievable IF I remain consistent in my training and lose about 10lbs/month up until the race. </p>

Not happy. But it could have been worse, I guess.
