February Training:

February Training:

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!!!!

Workouts: 5
Favorite Workout: 

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.

Today I ran my fastest 5k since my burnout. 18:38 with splits of 5:59, 5:52, and 6:02.

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.
