February training was not quite what I anticipated, but then again, none of 2020 was either. Today, March 1st, I celebrate the year anniversary of my last race. During the race, I broke my foot.
I’ve learned a lot about myself since then. As cliche as it sounds, I thought I was “ready to get fit” then. I was not. I needed time to build back up. Since taking breaking my foot and recovering, I’ve run some of the highest mileage weeks I have in a long time. Even though I have zero races coming up, I’m enjoying running more and longer. I look forward to the day I can actually showcase some fitness…who knows when that will be.
January flew by (mostly). Life and the real world definitely played a role in that. Anyway, this is a recap of my training. My goal for 2021 is to do all of the things I planned to do in 2020 and did not. Fitness-wise, that is to rebreak 1:25 in the half since the last time I did that was 2018. I did make a nice step towards that by rebreaking 1:30 in the half. Just 5 more minutes to go LOL.
I always feel like December gets lost in the mix. Like the long lost month of training posts. But December was a great month, running-wise. I’m running more than I ever have in my life, and I’m healthy.
