The scent of happy running is in the air!
That was me for the first month of 2017
The foot pain is gone as long as I am taped up. I have been able to get back to my regular training speed without any pain. And have been able to add up the happy miles.
All miles have felt good, so I have started back to running 50 miles a week. I do try to give myself a mini rest day. Since I do my long run on Sundays, I have tried to focus my Saturday run to be slow and short – somewhere around 3 – 5 miles. But again, at a slower pace.
My next scheduled race is The Love Run Half Marathon which is in 54 days. I feel ready for this race, and am excited to get back on the course.
As long as this race goes well, I plan to register for the Delaware Full Marathon in May, a race I love to run every year. So fingers crossed, my feet stay well, injury free and The Love Run is a great experience.
So here they are – my miles for January
Total miles: 240
