Jeff’s Post – Looking Back and Looking Ahead!

Considering I was dealing with a nasty head cold the past few weeks, I was happy with my running in January.  I ran 26 times (7 outside -the rest on the treadmill) and covered 148 miles for the month.  Tamara and I were also able to get some nice relaxing scenic runs in so that was fun.   I said I wasn’t going to compare this year to last year but I will and I can happily say that I ran 50 more miles this January than last.  That sounds good but the 148 is one of my lowest monthly mileage numbers.  I plan to keep pushing that monthly total into the spring.  Speaking of spring – We have had some unusually warm days in Maryland this month which has me itching for spring already.  I’m missing the race/expo weekends and can’t wait until our first event of 2012 – RnR USA in March.  Tamara and I will be running the ½ and I will be looking to PR and get under 1:40 for the first time.  I really hope to get a few 13+ mile runs in during February and want to be at my peak for the first race of the season.  Tamara and I are focusing on stepping up the speed so it will be interesting to see how much we can push each other during the next few months.  We are both super competitive so it should be fun!!  – Stay Tuned!!
