Training wise, January was a good month. I didn’t PR, but I’ve been working diligently and training hard. I know I’m close to PRs…
Miles Run: 248
Longest Run: 12 miles
Shortest Run: 1-mile cooldown
Range of Pace: 5:54-10:30
Out of the three, I enjoyed the Polar Plunge 5k the most. It was on the most difficult terrain, and it was a huge race. I never felt bad, but also not great. I was happy with my results. I enjoy racing in new states and environments.
I did this workout a few weeks ago and made my intervals and felt strong doing so. Everything clicked, and I finished feeling great afterwards.
In summary, I’m happy with how January went. Thinking out loud, I had a lot going on between life and relocating to Alabama for the month. To be fair, I got every run that I needed too, but running didn’t take priority. Despite not Pring, I do believe I’m in PR shape.
With my coach, I’m running fewer miles (and fewer races), but the pace has quickened. I don’t mind, and I’ve enjoyed the change.
February has a few bigger races including the Double Bridges Run and Mercedes half marathon. I hope to find a 5k towards the end of the month as well.
On another note, I’ll also move back to NJ, towards the middle of the month! I have enjoyed my time in Alabama, but I’m looking forward to going home.
