Welcome! Forums Running Forum January Miles Re: Re: January Miles



Well, I may be the biggest slacker to check in with January numbers. Count 'em:

42.2 miles running; about a fourth of those on a 'mill
39.2 miles classic xc skiing, including a 20K race last Saturday (2nd in my age group)
26.4 miles on the basement Nordic Track machine

I'll be relegated to the NT again tonight, so I'll likely crack 30 in that column.

Still recovering from a double dose of PF and pelvic abductor pain. I've been wearing my first pair of custom orthotics for about three weeks now; arches still tender so I haven't dared run with them. In the fall I switched from stability to neutral shoes which has definately helped

Will ski the 40K classic Badger State Games race on Saturday and looking toward my second 52K American Birkebeiner at the end of February. Beyond that, no set goals (otherwise I would have chimed in on that other thread) except I'll do the Grand Island Trail Marathon, Keweenaw Trail Running Festival and WORS (although I might do more biking than running at the latter).

While a BQ marathon attempt may be in the cards for '07, healing is a bigger priority. At least with the skiing I can avoid the pounding and keep in shape.
