Monthly Recap & Goals - May

Eek!  It has been over a month since I have posted, and a lot has happened since then.  However, I want to at least address progress toward goals for the month of May before I dive into two more exciting race reports for June.

May Highlights: 
  • Total miles run: 205.71 miles (first time with over 200 miles in a month!)
  • Total number of workouts: 24
  • Fastest training run: 6 miles in 44:54 (7:29 pace) on May 17
  • Longest training run: 16.07 miles run in 2:11:35 (8:11 pace) on May 19
  • Race: Twisted Ankle Trail Marathon in 5:43:01 (13:06 pace

I also had a record 60-mile week right after the Twisted Ankle, so, even though my pace was very slow, I was able to recover from a 26.2-mile run with relative ease.

Meanwhile, I also decided to bump up my annual mileage goal from 1500 miles to 1800 miles.  I honestly think I might hit 2000, but I'd rather have some padding just in case I sustain a minor injury along the way.

This month I have really enjoyed running with several friends: Cyrille, Sang, Rob C., Francis, Shawna, Katie, Elise, Isabel, Charlie, Libby, Danielle, Tom, and Paul.  They are all great athletes, and it has been wonderful getting to know each of them better!


  1. Over 200 miles in a months is amazing!!!!

    1. Thanks! I'm about to start an 18-week marathon training program that calls for 55-70 miles per week. Soon, things are going to really start to get interesting!
