Welcome to the newest followers--Yay!! Hope you enjoy and please chime in and let's hear your comments!! Make sure to check out the Legs Do it Challenge going on this month too workouts posted here!
January was not the best month in light of meeting my milage goals. For this, I am going to blame the weather. It's a bit of a cop out, but I am going to use it and going to have to step up my milage during the week even if it means logging miles on the dreaded treadmill. I should be running about 75 miles a month or 18 a week. If I only run three times a week it's a six mile run and less if I run 4 days a week.
January was a "free" month for me, meaning I was not training for anything specific yet and haven't been following a plan, so I know that has something to do with it. I think I need to start scheduling runs and not just waiting for the spirit to move me!
One method I am going to try as well and that is using "Meet Up"! My friend Adam has been running weekly with a group of people that he found on the Meet Up site and really enjoys it! So I signed up and am looking forward to hooking up with a group that runs the lakes by my house at my pace.
It should help with upping my milage and not running alone either. I have wanted to find a few people who run at my pace and that I can really connect with in our running and life! I have a few people that I love to run with already: Jason, Jenna and Adam (who runs with Meet up already) and am hoping to get them to come along.
Do you have more than one running partner? Do you like to run alone?
