February Goals (Read 125 times)

    1)  Have a successfully surgery and begin the long road to recovery.

    2)  Watch a lot of movies.

    3)  Try not to get too fat.

     

    My month was "successful", I guess.  I should be able to start biking in March.  I've got two more zero mile months ahead of me.  *sigh*

      - stay healthy

      - run what my coach says

      - focus on absolutely obliterating my 10k PR on March 17 and doing what I need to do over the next 6 weeks

       

      The only glitch on February was that I experienced some achilles discomfort, so of course I made a PT appointment right away (with a guy who is a runner of course). He mentioned a hip imbalance was leading to some extra pressure on my left achilles, which was starting to show the beginnings of tendonosis. Hopefully I nipped it in the bud early enough, otherwise the month has been non-eventful and I hopefully am on pace to completely destroy 38:27.

      2014 Goals and PRs:

      5k - 17:59 (18:17);  10k - 37:00 (37:54);   HM - 1:21:59 (1:24:21);   FM - whatever (3:05:46)

        Miles to go

          I just remembered that I almost put PR monthly mileage, but decided that might not be practical in a 28 day month. Instead, I think I had my mileage PR by the 20th.

          PRs: 5K: 25:35 / 10K: 53:03 / 10mi: 1:26:15 / HM: 1:55:02

                Bonus from February - set a 5K PR (26:23) in the Heart & Soles 5K in a race which I did not plan on running till 1 week before the race date.

                Wickedly Average

                  I'm not going to get too fancy with my goals for February. I've made specific goals the last couple of months, but missed a few of them. Weather and a lack of daylight are having an impact on my running schedule (though the days are getting noticeably longer now).

                   

                  Anyway,  I plan on continuing to follow my Ryan-esque training plan for my March 15K, which includes a couple of big hill runs and 3 or 4 interval workouts. I also intend to get at least 3 long runs in, preferably with a fair number of miles at 15K pace in each of them. And, I can see 110 miles for Feb, as I begin my taper right at the end of the month for the March 9 race.

                   

                  We'll see how it goes...

                   

                  Well, I learned one thing in February - by setting vague goals, I find that it's easier to meet them!

                   

                  Let's see - I ran 111.3 miles in February with 4 interval runs (though one included only 1 X 1 mile interval. 4 long runs. I did hit some modest hills on 3 or 4 runs, but not the major training hill that I wanted to hit. It was just too muddy out and I don't want to soil my trail shoes. Smile

                   

                  Pretty good month overall. Although my training was a little haphazard and unstructured, I think it was still fairly effective. I'll know more on 3/9 when I run a 15K.

                      - Get back into regular training this week

                      - work on speed and hills with a little more intensity

                      - stay within 60 and 70 miles per week

                       

                      -Training is going well

                      - I run my intervals a bit faster now and I had a good tempo run last week. Hills? Meh... Been doing baby hills, nothing spectacular.

                      - 312 miles for the month = 78 mpw. Happy with that, especially since those weeks were part of my post-marathon recovery. I'd say my legs recovered pretty quickly. Big grin

                        1. Finish the toughest 4 weeks of marathon training healthy.

                        2. eh, who am I kidding? I only have one goal this month.

                         

                        Mission accomplished. Now to taper without getting hurt or going crazy.

                          People list it because being injured sucks so folks make it a "goal" not to end up there, even though injuries are often out of our control.

                           

                          I think injuries are a natural part of running.  You can be as smart with your training as possible, but there is little you can do to prevent the inevitable muscle pull or tendon flare-up.

                           

                          +100

                          Injuries do suck, if I have to be sidelined then people around me are going to need to give me space, my sanity needs these runs and it makes me much more socially functional Evil
