January totals


If you check out my "Workout Log 2013" page, it's my lame attempt to log the stuff I do. I'm doing this mostly because I'm jealous of everyone who gets to say "I ran 1000 miles this year! Look at me!" and I get to say "I ran... indeterminate amount.. there were races..." Last year I had the goal of logging my running miles with the hope of getting to 1000 miles, and that never happened. I might have actually reached the mileage goal, but I have no way of knowing that. So here's the totals:

January totals: 66.62 miles, 13 times, plus 3 x elliptical, 3 x bike, 2 x swim, 3 x tabata

So that means I worked out 75% of the days in the month, and about half those workouts were running. Although that's super cool and a nice balance, it means I'm gonna miss the 1000 mile mark if I keep it up. Unacceptable. If I keep running just this much (I am well aware many people run this much in 1 week, much less 4 weeks. I am not trying to break any records here...), I'll get to about 800 miles for the year. And that's without factoring in the wedding and Brussels, which basically kill April completely. So. February- there will be more running. Even if it means back to back run days, because my foot has been surprisingly cooperative. 

1000 miles, here we go.
