february figures

March 1, 2013 at 11:06 am 2 comments

just a quick post on february numbers. last week was light since i opted to skip a back-to-back and just do the half marathon. not much worth writing about for the race. ran a 2:00:39. irritated i didn’t go sub-2 but it was hot and humid and pace hasn’t been my concern. i did come to a conclusion about racing in general but i’ll write about that a little later.

overall february was decent. 132 miles total for the month. a long of 22 and two strong back-to-backs. with race day five weeks away i’m concerned i’m not where i need to be at all but i’m not ready to concede that the 50k may be a better option. i have no doubt i could run a 50k tomorrow and for that i know i need to keep pushing for the 50 miler otherwise where is the challenge ~ and discomfort ~ i crave.

march is going to be a logistical struggle. dances with dirt relay on the 9th, mini-me’s first ice skating competition and a trip to NYC to meet my new nephew will no doubt cut into miles but i’ll find them where i can.

    I love and crave the challenge and discomfort of running as well. Reading your words just made it so very clear to me. Thank you! You are incredibly fast, even if you’re not meeting your ideals — I’m running a 50 miler in October. Or, I should say I’m signing up for a 50 miler. I have the option to stop at the 50k if I so choose, but what’s the point in that? Good luck to you! I’m sure you’ll hit it hard and come out happy — 50 miles complete.

      thanks! i keep toying with the idea of swapping to the 50k but it just doesn’t seem like enough. i think i would rather dnf the 50 miler than take the “easy” way out.
