January was a bit of an awkward month for me in terms of my running routine.
With running two marathons two weeks a part, I didn’t exactly do a lot of regular training. I ran the first race of the month (Disney Marathon) on the 12th, and two weeks later I PR’d in a race across the street from Disney at the Celebration Marathon.
For those two weeks in between, however, I only ran a handful of times to allow my body to recover.
The strategy obviously worked, but as the month draws to a close I know find myself behind the pace for my 2014 goal of 1500 miles.
So this month, my monthly mission will be making sure to get a run in each and every day. I’m hoping the weather will cooperate, because I’ve totally used it being “too cold” as an excuse to not getting in a few runs that I had tentatively planned. I’m hoping to end up with 120+ miles for this month, which will still leave me behind the pace I need to get to, but we will see how that goes. The mission is simply to run for the next 28 days, and see what happens.
