For the month of November, my goal was to run 110 miles over 25 days. I wound up running 81 miles over 20 days. It was close. I wasn't sure if I was going to make it to 20 days, but I made sure I got out 4 days this week. I ran 6 miles last night, so tonight I knew it would be an easy run of 3 miles. I decided to take the last day of the month off and make sure I am fresh for December.
I missed out on my goals because different items going on in life this month. My son started waking up extra early, I quit caffeine and I caught a cold. I needed some extra rest days in the middle of the month to speed my recovery. It worked. I also did not have any long runs.
For December, I want to run 85 miles over 20 days with long runs of 6 and 7 miles. These are some realistic goals. I want to stay injury free going into the new year, so I can start 2013 off with a strong start.
How did your November wind up and what do you have planned for December ?
