This year compared to last
by on Wednesday, April 3, 2013  (3 comments)

Just wanted to put it out there that this year while inconsistant is leaps and bounds over last year at this point.

Last year 1/1 through 4/3 I had only run 22 times for 83.83 miles and I still had a pretty good racing year.

This year 1/1 through 4/3 I have run 40 times for 258.63 miles.

I know I should have had nearly 500 miles so far but I have plenty of time before my goal races to step it up and work extra hard. Looking forward to the five races I have planned for the year.

You're ahead of where you were last year, without a doubt. How far ahead you will be when summer and fall roll around, there's only one way to find out. Let's make sure the answer is very far.

As for where you "should have" been, there's nothing you can do about that now. Look forward, not back.

I think it is okay this time of year to be a bit behind. Just make sure you get the miles in from now on and you will get where you want to be.

Thanks Ryan and Charlene,

April is shaping up to be a very good month. Feeling well and feeling pretty strong. I think I am going to skip my May race as they have not answered my questions regarding some safety concerns (kids/ walkers in the running path.) So May can be fully dedicated to train for my June 2nd race - that one is a minor focus of mine. I have moved in my age group from 3rd to 2nd so I hope to do that one more place up this year and take my age group. Never know what tomorrow will bring.
