For the month of February, I ran 80 miles over 18 days. My goal was 85 miles over 21 days. I started off on a fast track. I ran 6 out of the first 7 days of the month. I took advantage of improving weather conditions as it was ideal conditions to get out for a run.
I slowed up towards the middle of the month, as I needed a day or two off, plus I took an extra day off to take my wife out to a show for her birthday. Near the end of the month, I also took a few days off. I had to go to another city for a work event plus I took the day off before my big race. February is tough to get days in as there are only 28 days. I may have reached my goal if there were 30 or 31 days in the month.
All was not lost as I did achieve a personal best of distance when I completed a 9 mile run this month. Throw in 2 more runs of 7 each and I was on a roll. I did do a bunch of quick 3 mile runs to make up for the time I was out during my long runs.
For the month of March, I am hoping to complete 100 miles over 23 days. I also hope to continue to do long runs of 7 miles and maybe even reach 9 or even 10 miles in the month. Plus, I have my first race in the month of the March.
How was your February?
