one of these months i will complete my goal of running 17 miles, but march was not that month. i gave myself some time off to deal with some personal stuff, and then we had a weeklong cold snap, so i huddled up in my room and enjoyed being lazy for a few weeks. i got back out there eventually, and although i didn’t have the time or the inclination to hit 17 miles this month, i am proud of where i ended up.
i managed to clock 10.48 miles in march, a slight decrease from my february mileage, but i ended on a positive swing. i also registered for the bluff city 10k in may, which has kicked my butt into gear a bit. i’ve not run a 10k in three years, and i am determined to complete this one without having to walk, so i have my work cut out for me in the coming weeks.
now that spring is upon us and the days are getting longer, i have a good feeling about completing those 17 miles in april. stay tuned!
