I hit my 2013 mileage goal. I made it over 1000 miles for the first time. With winter and a busier schedule, my running has dropped off a bit since. Only 20 miles (plus biking, skiing, and walking) in Janury. Hitting 1,000 was satisfying and rewarding, but it kind of required a relentlessness bordering on obsession. I want to get back out there and get the miles in, but I am deliberately not setting a high specific mileage target at this point.
It is already Feb and I have not really formulated new goals for the year. I think I will work in more cross training and plan to do a triathlon or two this summer? There is a nice triathlon here at West Point in August, as well as a few 5 to 10k running races.
We do not rise to the level of our expectations. We fall to the level of our training.
