The month of January was a cold month, sprinkled in with some warm days which I took advantage of for my marathon training. It’s always a nice treat to run some days in the winter time when the temperatures are above freezing. Overall I was happy with the month. I will be happy when warmer weather returns for good though. Below are some highlights of my month of training.
|January, 2018:||380.0 mi||12.25 miles a day average|
Biggest week of training: 101 miles
Shortest week of training: 77 miles
Longest run: 22 miler on January 20th it was 36 degrees out a nice day.
Days off: 0
Best workout: January 30th a 14 mile tempo workout on the treadmill with 10 miles in 59:44.
Worse run: January 18th was really cold and windy gutted out an easy 10.5 miles at 8:42 pace.
Races done: One. I Disqualified myself at a local 5k since I got lost and went down the wrong road. Wasn’t my fault except I should of studied the map a little more. No volunteer or arrows telling us to cross a major intersection and I turned right and went until I saw a stop sign and turned left. I had huge lead. It happens. I had 3.5 miles on my watch before I got near the finish line. I tore bib and didn’t cross. I did the honorable thing since I didn’t follow the correct route. At least I got a good workout in.
