Dec of 2011 when I had began training I ran 38 miles in just that month. My best month ever! 2011 total was 72 miles.
April 2012- April 2013 I didn't run. The full year after my half marathon. I believe it was out of fear since I had heart rhythm issues at the finish line. I think I may be a little crazy on this but I told my husband I'd like to wear a monitor next time I run a half in case I have an episode again. We will see. I'll discuss that with my cardiologist.
Anyhow so after a good table discussion about races with cousins at Christmas I think I'll be doing the half marathon in my hometown over mothers day weekend. I have one cousin planning to do it as we'll. maybe more will join in. Or some friends. Not sure but a goal /race ahead of me should get the mileage up again.
I would like to set a new goal of a years total of miles as well. So hear are the goals below:
May 10th: half marathon
2014: 200 miles total (I'm hoping higher but want something completely attainable and 200 is more than 2011-2013 put together)
I also dedicated a drawer in my dresser today to running things: hats, gloves, socks, earbuds, etc and a workout clothes drawer too. Hoping that helps me have quicker prep time for getting out the door or packing a gym back in the morning.
Loving how the runkeeper app lets you set goals now for tracking.
