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!
