4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

Jan 2011 in Review

I haven’t posted here in awhile, I guess because I’m sort of in-between at the moment.  My big winter race is done, and now I have time to kill before my succession of exciting spring events.  And with all the snow we’ve had, I just haven’t been putting in a lot of running – also not stressing about it at all…

Running – 83.9 miles over 11 runs.  Half of those miles came in the first 9 days!  The highlight was running the First Light Marathon on my 40th birthday!  In all, a nice healthy start to the year though, and continues my streak of now 14 months in a row of 70 or more miles.   I’m certainly ahead of schedule for the year because I have set NO particular running goal for the year.  So invigorating!

Races – 1 (First Light Marathon – 4:37:10)

Biking – 0

Swims – 0

Gym workouts – 3 (the start of a new habit???)

Softball – 0

Injuries – Tweaked something in my lower back mid-month, but not a big issue and did not hold me back much

Sicknesses – None

Weight – will start reporting my progress here so I can be held accountable.  My weight and body fat is the worst it has been since Jan 2007, when I first started recording such measurements.  I have a long way to go to simply get back to where I have been much of the last couple of years.  This month serves as a baseline, and I hope I see it going down from here.
