Remember how close I was to a new monthly mileage high in January?
Remember how I really considered going on a 5 mile run just to beat that old high by a fraction?
Remember how I said that I decided not to because I had a feeling February was going to be a good month?
And remember how I said I would rather beat that monthly high by a lot instead of a fraction?
Turns out I was right about all those things. Even on a short month.
My new monthly mileage high AND first time breaking 300!
I bet my previous monthly high by almost 40 miles and it was a short month!
So what exactly happened in February?
Pretty much a lot of running with a lot of friends in some beautiful places. I didn’t have as much time to blog as I would have liked, but I got the important stuff in. Between running, fueling said running, recovering from said running, working a full time job and spending time with my family, pups and friends, there wasn’t a whole lot of time left!
I finally crossed the marathon mark and ran my longest run yet – 28 miles! This should hopefully only be standing for another week and a half.
I had a blast at the Lake Chabot 30k and enjoyed my last cutback week of training before taper.
It was a really great month and I feel stronger than ever and still so excited about it everything. This ultra-training was exactly what I needed to find the spark in my running again.
March is going to be another big month with 3 big peak weeks ahead of me and some really fun races too. It is always one of my most favorite months so I am excited that it’s here!
