Miles Run: 247
Range of Paces: 6:02-9:50-untimed
Pensacola Double Bridges 15k (58:48)
Mercedes Half Marathon (1:27.01)
4X2 mile (12:50, 12:48, 12:48, 12:40)
During February, I didn’t make a lot of my workout paces and intervals. My two mile workout was the first one I felt successful and that I finally able to make my intervals and feel strong doing so.
Easily the Double Bridges Run. Despite the cold and having a rough morning, I was able to feel good during the race.
February was definitely a grind month. Instead of racing frequently, I got through a lot of quality workouts. I typically post most of them on instagram and you can follow along there. Not every workout (if any), felt easy and I do feel as though I was pushing out of my comfort zone.
As a whole, I’m happy with the month. Not every month can be an exciting, PRing month. I have come to realize as a runner, I am more confident when I race frequently but grind months do pay off later on.
My goal for March is to get back to enjoying the process of running. I had my fair share of negative (running related) thoughts during February and I’m looking forward to just focusing on the positive. I’m running Shamrock Half Marathon in about 2 weeks which is one of my favorite!

Questions for you:
How was your month of training?
What is your favorite month of the year?
Very impressive accomplishments and goals! Enjoyed reading this post 🙂
Great job Hollie! You’re always an inspiration to keep running and racing.
December & September are tied in my book. I love December because it’s my birthday month AND Christmas. But September is my favorite weather/scenery.
Glad to see you around Aimee! I’ve missed following your training and life. 🙂
The grind WILL pay off. It seems ( of course only from reading) that you are rarin’ to go for a race and unleash your speed. I will hope for good weather for you at Shamrock! You and all that races’ devotees deserve it.
My favorite month is July. It is full-on summer which I love.
I love following your training. Thank you for sharing and can’t wait to see you at Shamrock!!
Mercedes and Shamrock are on my list!!
I’m a summer runner–I just don’t do cold very well and winter running is just not fun for me.
Looking forward to your spring training!
I was excited to do 50 miles this month wow impressive!!!
Oh yeah, I can totally relate to February being a grind. Nothing fancy or glamorous–just putting in work now so we can perform well later. 🙂 I’ll have another few months of grinding, and hopefully the “fun” will start in May. Keep it up!
