Wow what a month! January – even with its very cold days and a bunch of ice and snow gave me some great numbers. I had my highest ever weekly mileage total at 62.89 miles. I also had my highest ever monthly total at 245.17 miles besting my previous high of 229 miles. Unfortunately, I missed one scheduled run of seven miles. The route that I have been using has a number of good hills in it so I got some great hill training as well. Even though the pace was slow at a hair under eight minutes per mile I had plenty of great effort in almost every run.
I am feeling very good right now. This January I had more miles than I did September 2014 through April of 2015 and I had a successful 2015 racing season. I think there are great things to come this year.
Twenty nine days until the February update – see ya then folks.
Run – run – run!
