February running recap

Image

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!

  1. 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?

  2. 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.
