It would have been a lot easier to write this post if I had kept my personal excel spreadsheet up to date. It usually makes writing a monthly recap much easier. Anyway-
Miles run: About 220
Rest Days: 3
Range of Paces: 5:51-11:12-untimed
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Mercy 3 Miler (18:20)
Cupids Chase 5k (18:38)
Frostbite 5 miler (30:25)
Phoenix Half Marathon (1:22.03) PR!!!!
I’ve been doing a lot of 400s and 800s on the road which I enjoy. My favorite workout was the 400s I did on 2/14. I averaged 86 seconds which is quick for me.
With 400s and 800s, I take 400 jogging rest between. I don’t “stop moving”.
Well, after 2 years I PRed. I feel good about it, so I keep talking about it. After all, this is a running blog. That being said, the later 3 races all were good to me. I was pleasantly surprised with the Cupids Chase 5k and Frostbite 5 miler too. My training has been ticking off well, and I’ve been making an effort to recover well, rest when appropriate, and just relax.
February was my best month of training and racing in a while. I’m hoping to continue the momentum in both March and April. Obviously, not every race will be a PR, but I’m hoping for quality workouts and training this month.
