January Recap stats

I can't believe it's February already...

Miles/km planned / ran: 150 miles/240K planned / 70.8 miles / 113.4K ran (I was forced to take two weeks off from running due to The Foot, and forced to take it slow when I could give running a try again)

Rest days planned / taken: 9 / 8 - thanks to cross training a lot! :)

Highest mileage week: 33 miles / 53K (again...due to The Foot)

Long runs planned / ran: 5 / 3 (yep...stupid foot...)

Pace workouts / speedwork planned / ran: 4 / 1 (this is getting boring...The Foot...no speedwork!)

Crosstraining workouts planned / taken: 4 / 11

Donuts burned: 72

Current shame-inducing guilty pleasure: Uhm....am I this boring? I can't come up with one single shame-inducing thing to share...

Current obsessions: Shrimp curry and french cheese

Current drink: Fennel tea and the good old diet coke (again...bad girl!)

Current song: Katie Perry - Firework - I can NOT get this song out of my head!

Current need: New running shoes. My good old GT-2150's look tired...and ready to retire...

Current triumph: Keeping my chin up through this injury rut I've been in lately and kicking cross training (cycling AND swimming) into gear! Hello, I didn't even like swimming!

Current bane of my existence: This injury rut I've been in...

Current blessings: Those early morning runs with my dog.

Current excitement: Don't start me on this one! Uhm... Swiss Alpine Marathon?

Are you sure you are just not over training and that is causing your foot to yell at you? You are putting in a TON of miles for just running for around 1 year. It seems like you may be putting in to may miles to quickly.

@ Kevin: Uhm...I consider a 150 miles month an easy month... my body actually likes me during those months. ;) And The Foot...well...my PT blames it on the calf strain + new inlays. ;)

@ LaVonne: I am taking baby steps on this one. Trying to be as patient as I can! How is your recovery going?

@ Emz: Ha! Too bad I did NOT actually eat those donuts... Mehhhh... ;)
