It has been an amazing start of the year (for running at least…).I am on track with my 2 annual challenges and way over my winter challenge.
Winter challenge: Run 200 miles between January and March
Actual miles run: 321 miles. MedalSlut challenged me to run 300 miles earlier this year, which I rejected at the time. Now, of course, my rejection looks silly. I should really listen to her next time. 🙂
Annual miles challenge: Run 1000 miles in 2012
Well on track with 321 miles done already in the first 3 months. Now, I just need to make sure I keep up the running.
Annual race challenge: Run a race each month (challenger: my running buddy S)
I am rephrasing it as “Run 12 races in 2012”. Some months are just challenging to find an adequate race (like February). So far I have run 4 races with my running buddy S: a half marathon, a 5k, a 10k and an 8-mile race. Well on track!
Now I need a Spring challenge. And I know just the right one. Now that I know I belong…. For the next 3 months (April to June) I will be focusing on improving my pace. My races are actually not about running a PR, but about enjoying the scenery. I tend to pick different races mostly. But I really want to run a PR in an upcoming 10k or half marathon. I am eying the San Diego Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon for a PR. Spring challenge accepted: run fewer miles, but up the tempo! 🙂
What are your spring challenges?
