January Roundup

January is a month filled with hope! So many resolutions, goals, and dreams. I hope that feeling of hope that everyone has in January extends through the next 11 months.  I’m going to quickly recap my running in the month of January.

January 1st FUN RUN with Amy!

I previously posted my 2015 running goals, one being to run 1100 miles in 2015. With a month down, I’m happy to report I am right on target, finishing January with 90 miles.  My longest run in January was 8.2 miles, on January 18.  My highest mileage week was the week of January 19-25, with 25.45 miles.  I ran with the KCRC Groupies 5 times in January, and my pace with the group has been getting faster each week.  I completed one race, the Groundhog Run 10k, and PR’d by over a minute!

In addition to running, I began taking a yoga class once a week, and couldn’t be happier with my class and instructor.  I’ve recently been able to do an assisted headstand, which I’m really excited about.  It makes me want to do more and more and get stronger and get to the point where I don’t need to use the blocks!  I am confident that yoga will continue to help my running, my mind, and my body become stronger.

Did you set any specific goals for January? How are you doing on your resolutions or goals for 2015?  Happy February!
