December totals AND 2013 mileage!

December was my marathon recovery month. How did I do on recovery? The way I usually do, start off slow and low mileage, feel better, then immediately ramp up again. I'm the worst.

However, I did back off toward the end of the month to try and stop stressing about fitting workouts in and just let the rest of my life take precedence. That worked. It worked so well that I haven't worked out in almost a week as of today... yay me? December goes down as my second lowest mileage month for the year, with less than 50 miles run. The only month with fewer miles was April, with the wedding. I'd like to think that having these two months, the two where I was most focused on being with my family and friends. I'm balanced, yo.
They're weighing... fruit bits? Gushers? Such a weird photo.

That brings us to my total for 2013...... 1212.84 miles running (and 485 biking)!! Let's just call it 1212, because that's a nice number. I am delighted with this number, since it far exceeds my goal of 1000 miles. Yay me. Yay 2013.
