December: 115 (this proves that I can have a 100+ mile month when I’m not training for anything)
Total for 2012: 1171
I have to say that I am pretty excited to have met (and exceeded) my mileage goal for 2012. I have set the goal to run 1000 miles for each of the last two years. In 2010, I got pregnant with Logan and that ended my goal for that year…and the next year. This year, everything worked out. I was able to run well all year. I remained injury-free (knock on wood), and didn’t have to take any significant time off. Training for a marathon didn’t hurt those mileage totals, either!
December long runs: None to speak of. I did a few run-for-an-hour days on the treadmill. I’m just working on maintaining my fitness so that I can head into half marathon training in January.
December races: Hot Chocolate Fun Run.
Push ups: I have completely fallen off the push up bandwagon. It just wasn’t fun any more. I may try to do some other type of arm/back work…or maybe just bicep curls.
Sit ups: See above! Actually, I hurt my back (more accurately, my trapezius) doing crunches earlier this month. I think I will stick to planks. I’m working on a goal in regards to planks for 2013. But first, I need someone to time me to see what my baseline is.
Upcoming races: I’m working on my race schedule for 2013. There are a lot of races that I want to do, but finances may be the limiting factor.
How was your December?
