January was a month of tapering, procrastinating the start of my training plan, and quite honestly, lack of motivation. Out of all the years I've trained for a race, this is the first time it's been tough to officially get started. I'm not sure why, but I have an idea. And I do know that once I get that runner's high following my weekend long run, it's all back to normal. It's funny how that works, isn't it? You wake up dreading a run, and you finish that run with the thankfulness that you did it. Plus, Dakota would never let me get away with not getting a run in. She's just a big a runner as I am. The minute she sees those running tights go on, there's no going back.
So overall, my January miles were pretty low. I didn't begin training until the third week of the month and was tapering prior to that. But I am thankful that there are miles to be counted. Because miles to be counted means I was out doing something, staying healthy, and keeping myself active. And besides, monthly miles are just a part of the bigger picture - how many miles I ran in 2012.
Is anyone else logging miles for 2012?
Did any of you keep a log of your January miles?
How many did you run?
Have a fabulous weekend!
