January is over already! I can still vividly remember my first run of 2017, in Cloverdale, Indiana of all places! Let’s get right into January’s running recap!
I ran 55 miles in January, which is way lower than I prefer, but I spent a week and a half too sick to run and had a very busy month, otherwise. Overall, I had pretty solid runs, just not quite as often as I would have liked. My unofficial goal this year is to reach 1000+ miles again.
I started 2017 in Detroit, with Chris and his family. We had a 12 hour drive home on New Years Day, so naturally, we stopped about halfway to run a mile. I had told Chris we would have to stop and run at least a mile, because one ALWAYS runs on New Years Day! He was thrilled, just like I knew he would be. 😉
My longest run in January was 10 miles, which happened on a treadmill, unfortunately. I needed to get a good solid long run, but it was drizzly and hovering around freezing, with icy spots, so I opted for inside, and had my longest treadmill run to date.
I ran with friends a couple times, ran solo several times, and ran with Chris a bunch too in January. I had 15 runs total in January, which isn’t terrible. I like to have 1-2 days off from running each week, so I’m looking forward to picking it up a bit in February.
I finished out January with a strong 5 mile run, which felt great. My goal for February is to add strength training 1-2 times per week over my lunch hour, in addition to my running.
How was your January? Any goals for February?
