14 Miler – January Has Been a Beast

I ran 14 miles on saturday,  we having a serious freeze going on.   It was 15 degrees out when I stared my run,  I wore my KSO’s with the Nu-wool Injinji socks,  this combination is great so far.  The run went really well, I am trying to run my long runs at a slower pace, but always start off to fast, and my pace really takes a significant dip towards the end, I want to be more consistent.

January has been a beast!   I think we have had about 4 snow storms this month alone, the temps have been freezing to the bone, and sickness has been getting the best of me.  My four year old  came down with a stomach bug which just ripped through the rest of the family like the movie “outbreak”.    My weekly mileage has definitely not been up to marathon training standards.   This week I only got in 27 miles, but whatever,  between work, family, and now school starts this week,  I do what I can.   I have two more senior semesters to go, looking at graduation in May, it’s been quite a journey.

  1. January has been downright evil this year. The wool Injinjis have been my savior, except for that time I went out already having cold feet. That kind of idiocy no wool sock can fix.

My reactions exactly. Happy Birthday to my boy Andrew who turns 11 today.  There he is at 3 joining me at the finish of my first marathon.  I was about 50 yards from the finish line, spotted him in the crowd and wave and out he shoots to join me to the finish line. Such an awesome memory I will never forget. This is great! The Cove. Barefoot running and gravel paths!? Call it a nice massage on the feet. I never tried or thought about deadlifts when younger. Now at the ripe age of 46 I discovered how awesome they are.  With 3 weeks in I hit 190lbs for 5 reps on my last set. Thanks to my son for the recording.
