Totals for January 2010

Mileage: 102.30
Time: 16:15:17
Avg Pace: 9:32 min/mi
Avg Speed: 6.3 MPH

So far, January has been a good start for 2010. I put in some decent mileage, PR'ed at the Manhattan Half Marathon, and set the tone for a good year. I made the decision to forego a spring marathon (didn't give in to peer pressure), but rather to focus on my short distances, and accumulate races to complete the 9+1 Guaranteed Entry into the NYC Marathon as quickly as I can.

That way, I'll go into the start of fall marathon training feeling strong, fast and motivated.

I also made a concerted effort to branch out - and find more running buddies to keep me going through the winter. I joined the New York Flyers, and have been regularly attending their weeknight runs, as well as leveraging the club for weekend run partners. I also hooked up with a group of NYC Tweeters, courtesy of my old friend Ansky - so there are a lot of people to make plans with when I don't feel motivated to leave the house.

Next race: NYRR Gridiron Classic - it's a 4 Miler, and I don't plan to PR there, since I'm feeling a bit under the weather these days. Just planning to go out and have a good time (but then again, that was my plan at the Manhattan Half as well).
