I’ve been more consistent getting out there a few times a week and my long runs were going well enough in the low double digits. The lack of Polar Vortex weather has helped me get outside, plus I have treadmill access at New York Sports Club which has a ton of locations. I’m doing speed training Tuesdays and Thursdays, which is also helping.
January 13-19: 29 miles. This is my highest weekly mileage since April, right before my plantar fibroma ended my spring/summer season.
January 20 – 26: 21.5 miles out of a proposed 31 because I moved my long run then didn’t get it done.
January 27 – February 2: 28.6 miles, including a 4 mile race. I wanted to extend my warm up and cool down to hit 30 for the week, but was pretty beat after.
Winter/Spring race calendar so far:
February 2: NYRR Gridiron 4 Miler
February 16: 10 miles as a tuneup race
March 1: Atlanta Half
April 5: Cherry Blossom 10 Miler in DC. I’m in but need to secure accommodations and travel.
Early May: Ragnar Cape Cod May 8-9. I’m also in for Broad Street Run in Philly May 3rd since I had to defer in 2019 (and 2018, sigh). I don’t think I should race and relay three weeks in a row.
May 16: Brooklyn Half, after much agita getting in.
I’m trying to pick an actual 5K or 10K to hopefully PR, but might put those off until summer.
Eats: I’ve still been eating and cooking tasty things, but not taking a lot of pictures of them.
