Winter and spring challenges…

It has been an amazing start of the year (for running at least…).I am on track with my 2 annual challenges and way over my winter challenge.

Winter challenge: Run 200 miles between January and March

Actual miles run: 321 miles. MedalSlut challenged me to run 300 miles earlier this year, which I rejected at the time. Now, of course, my rejection looks silly. I should really listen to her next time. 🙂

Annual miles challenge: Run 1000 miles in 2012

Well on track with 321 miles done already in the first 3 months. Now, I just need to make sure I keep up the running.

Annual race challenge: Run a race each month (challenger: my running buddy S)

I am rephrasing it as “Run 12 races in 2012”. Some months are just challenging to find an adequate race (like February). So far I have run 4 races with my running buddy S: a half marathon, a 5k, a 10k and an 8-mile race. Well on track!

Now I need a Spring challenge. And I know just the right one. Now that I know I belong…. For the next 3 months (April to June) I will be focusing on improving my pace. My races are actually not about running a PR, but about enjoying the scenery. I tend to pick different races mostly. But I really want to run a PR in an upcoming 10k or half marathon. I am eying the San Diego Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon for a PR. Spring challenge accepted: run fewer miles, but up the tempo! 🙂

What are your spring challenges?

One Response to “Winter and spring challenges…”

  1. I would not recommend listening to my ideas! That’s how I ended up with my ridiculous race schedule this year… 12 races in 12 months is a great idea – especially in areas where the races are scarce in winter months! 🙂

    Great job on smashing your first goal, I’m sure you’ll make the 1000 miles in 2012 (not least because that’s one of my goals and you’re ahead of me in mileage so far!).
