I finished off December pretty pathetically with a 20 mile week in there at the end. Even before that, I never really got going, topping out around 40-50 miles.
January started up right where December left off. As of the morning of the third, I logged an impressive 0 miles. Then, I wanted to get serious as I began my first full training week of 2005. I have big plans for this year and the coming few years and I need the training to fulfill those plans. The first two weeks of the month, I started off great and fell off at the end of the weeks: 61/73. The third week, I never got going: 40. Finally, I just said it’s time to get going: 100. Today, I found out the non-running foot injury wasn’t as bad as I thought it might be yesterday and I got in an additional 17. That puts me at 291 for the month. I was hoping to be in the 300s but I guess I wasn’t that far off and now the motivation has hit.
Not the greatest month but the trend is going in the right direction. From 0 miles in the first 2 days to 117 miles in the last 8 days.
