Didn’t I just write a Feb recap?? Is this what happens when you get older? Times really flies!
The month included a lot of coaching, loads, a few miles, lots of work hours, a November Project workouts, a visit to the Asics showroom, my birthday celebrations, a few Facebook Live Chats, the big United NYC Half Weekend and race, Club Night, lots of runs with friends, and two races: the United NYC Half and the Central Park Spring 10K this past two weekends. Now that I think about it, I see why my mileage was so low… makes sense!!!!!!!!!!!! Hoping Spring makes things easier and I can get out there more. I need to figure out a way to not need that much sleep…!
Here is my training for March:
- Total Miles: 127
- Races: two! (6 total for the year!)
- Ups: had fun. The NYC Half!!!
- Downs: Not super up there with the splits or the mileage.
- Balance: move on March, April is coming!!!!!!!!!!
hello March! I have no idea where these weeks go!??! I actually freaked out a couple of weeks ago, because I realized it was too late to train for the United NYC Half… these weeks are faster than any of my races!
Well, the month started with the Gridiron 4 miler, which I totally phoned in. What a loser I am sometimes. Actually, that’s why I freaked out, because, seriously Elizabeth, get it together! Why show up at a race and not even try? UGH. I frustrate myself so much sometimes! The next weekend, pre-Valentine’s Day, Juan and I spent some romantic time in the city, NO MORE DETAILS of course. The weekend after that, we raced a relay triathlon, as a Valentine’s Days Weekend thing: the Lovie Dovie Triathlon at Chelsea Piers. That Thursday was Club Night. a fun event to celebrate NY’s runners. Fun. And last weekend I raced the Al Gordon 4 miler, which went a bit better than the first 4 miler this month. Very busy weeks with lots of events and work and life stuff. All of it fun.
Here is my training for February:
- Total Miles: 131
- Races: three!!!
- Ups: it was almost summer.
- Downs: I need more time before the NYC Half PLEASE!!!
- Balance: Someone please slow down time. seriously.
went by ridiculously fast. So fast I didn’t even notice I didn’t post a recap for the Half I did. I literally started the year racing. Or running on a race course.. We did the Midnight Run, which happens right at the stroke of midnight on January 31st. I was signed up for the Kleinerman 10K because I had a little head cold and decided to focus on my health first. I was moving two days later so I didn’t want to overdo the weekend. So, I changed apartments, and I also started a new job (and career). Life got busy. I am also still coaching a lot. I renewed my CPR and AED cert. I led a few runs and coached many biomechanics 1x1s. Then we went to vacation to Antigua, which was more necessary that I had time to realize. January was a bit crazy. But we made it, with decent mileage, 118 miles in. The United NYC Half is dangerously close…
- Total Miles: 118
- Races: one (Manhattan Half) though I wasn’t really racing.
- Ups: a vacation. And feeling the need to RUN on vacation. Who does that?
- Downs: January was busy so I wasn’t really paying attention…
- Balance: meh, in a holding pattern for now
Wow- you are seriously busy! I like the way you make notes on each of your runs. Do you see patterns over time?
