It's not all broken crank arms.
Back in July I pushed really hard to try and get a stupid monthly distance badge for cycling on Strava. Which I got! Wooo! On the plus side it gave me my biggest distance cycling in a month (1,290 km). The down side is I felt burned out and ended up doing a lot less KM in August. A real shame, nicer weather and light evenings are pretty precious in these northern climes.
So it's a surprise that without consciously trying for it October is going to end up slightly bigger than July's knackering push. I'm feeling pretty good with no signs of burnout (as yet) and there's still a couple of days left to put in ~100km.
Very happy that what previously felt like an overly onerous slog now seems pretty natural :)
