living in the now

Still rambling about running. Sometimes other things.

So long, February!

February was, in one simple word, successful. 

I ran more than in January and I continued lifting weights 2-3 times a week. My weight pretty much maintained - I could've and should've eaten better, but it certainly wasn't a disaster as I still have a net loss for the year of 5 pounds. 

A few highlights ... 

I'm now really looking forward to March.

In the past two-plus years, I have not had four straight months of increase in mileage, and after maintaining my patience and running pain-free since Dec. 1, continuing my streak into March will be a major milestone. 

My running miles since starting over on Dec. 1 have been: 

  • December: 14.9 
  • January: 31.5
  • February: 43.7

In February, I got much more comfortable with runs of 2-3 miles and hit 4 miles a couple of times. In March, I'd like to focus on having 3-4 miles feel "normal" again, and get to 5 miles by the end of the month. 

Let's do this!
