February was a short month, but that’s no excuse for how mediocre it turned out to be. In January, I ran 25 more miles, took six fewer rest days and my average pace was 34 seconds faster (and I apparently needed all of February to recover from that).
Here’s the breakdown:
Total miles run: 105.5
Weekly average: 26.4
Daily average: 3.8
Average pace: 8:45
Time spent running: 15 hours, 29 minutes
Treadmill runs: 12
Outdoor runs: 13
Rest days: 8
Also: 7 pints of beer, 3 shots of Jameson (sorry, mom!), 4 bottles of wine, 2 growlers and a partridge in a pear tree
Photos of me running: 1
Next month, I would LIKE to do some long runs. I’ve been doing speed work for the first time in my life and while I do appreciate what it helped me accomplish, there is something to be said for just zoning out and relaxing over a casual 14 miles. Plus, I really just feel like I need to put up some double digit runs in order to feel good about myself (in the most adolescent way possible).
Oh, and I’d also like to not have a toothache anymore. I want to be able to drink beverages at something other than room-temperature. I’ve got a refrigerator full of fantastic beer and I CAN’T DRINK ANY OF IT.
