The miles weren’t easy, but they sure were fun. I’ve found it very difficult to brave the cold winter we’ve had this year to get my training in. Mix that together with recovery from the Hilton Head Marathon, and I just didn’t get a ton of miles in this past month.
Total miles just under 70 including said marathon, was all I could scrape together. Ok, ok, I need to give myself a break, after all, February is the shortest month of the year. The good news is, that I have been able to string together 6 runs in seven days, without much pain at all. Things are looking up. We’ve even had a few warmer days, and with Daylight Savings Time this weekend, it means more daylight for getting in my runs. Less excuses.
As I look ahead at March, there are many things I would like to accomplish. First and foremost is an increase in mileage. Secondly, how about a nice BQ at the Quintiles Wrightsville Beach Marathon in 13 days. Wouldn’t that be something? Ok, if I hit that goal, I may just take a week off to celebrate. After some recovery no matter how that race goes, I have to ramp back up for my next 26.2 in April. My birthday race, mid month.
Oh, and I really need to start some race planning for Fall. At this point I have one marathon and two half marathons planned. I need to find a September Full, so if you have any ideas for a great marathon in September, let me know.
Onward and upward. February ended well, so let’s push for an even better month of March!
Cheers to another great month!
Thanks! You too!
Looks like you did pretty good to me! Happy running!
Sioux Falls Marathon is in September!
South Dakota, huh? Which airport is closest?
Sioux Falls. Omaha is about 2.5 hours away.
I’ve just completed my first half since my come back to running last year and I have to say I have the bug:) although I haven’t run since Sunday I feel good however I have work to do for my next half in August and hopefully the Dublin marathon end of October…Any ideas on how to get my pace up?
Awesome! How did you finish? Pace will improve with fitness level and note training, including sprints.
You must be an evening runner! I had just started to see sunlight for a little while on my morning runs, but with Daylight Savings, I’ll be back to running in the dark. Weh 😦
Glad your pain seems to be letting up.
Let’s just say I am a daylight runner if at all possible. The warmest part of the day in the winter.
Hope you have an awesome race at Wrightsville Beach and get that BQ!
Thank you so much.
