I am on target for my January running agenda.  I set a goal for the month of 140 miles.  Before today's run I am at a total of 110.5 miles for the month.  

 

I am also 5.2 miles ahead of pace for my 2017 year goal of 1600 miles.  I have averaged 4.61 miles per day so far this month.  Not bad overall.  I have not completed as many longer runs (6+ miles) as I had hoped this month.  A couple minor pain issues along with a few snow/ice days got me a little off track.

 

I have also been successful at banking $1 for every mile towards a simple vacation fund to be used in the future.  I round up from whatever my daily mileage is so I have banked $124 towards that project so far.  

 

Gonna be an interesting year...

I was doing 6+ miles two times per week until I started getting terrible shin splints. I would like to say make sure if you start having pains to take care of it, otherwise you will end up having to take even more time off. Like me. And I am feeling stir crazy, but it's all because I did not listen to my body. Anyway, those are awesome goals.

I finished January on track...

 

Goal: 140 miles 

Actual: 140.2 miles

 

After the first two days of February, I am 7.4 miles ahead of pace to my annual goal of 1600 miles.  

 

Target for February is 130 miles.  That's 10 miles less than January but there are three less days so it's actually a slightly higher daily average.

I would never discourage anyone from more exercise, but please, keep a close eye on your knees.  I know too many guys around my age who have permanent damage to their knees from running too much or too hard.

It's amazing how being sick for several days can get you off your game.

 

I came down with a sinus cold on Saturday and it has affected my running up until today.  I ran every day but I ran short on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday just so I could keep my running every day resolution in place.  I am off pace for my February goal of 140 miles by quite a bit.  I won't be able to make it up.  I am just about dead even on my 1600 mile goal for the year.  I will try to up my goal in March.  I am trying to up my daily average just a little each month.  I was shooting for a 4.65 mile average each day this month and being sick has downed my average to 4.19 per day for the month.  I can make up some of it but not all of it.  I will set the March target to 4.8 miles per day / 148 miles for the month.

I wanted to post to add to the knee comment. And nip the upcoming  cliche in the bud. Yes, you can hurt your knees riding a bicycle. I did it. Higher cadence is much better for knees not mashing on the pedals like the one speed, starter bike days. Think spinning.

 

I'm a bicycle guy. Mind you,  not the skinny 6 ft. 4. 170 pound type, ride 20 mph, 100+ miles per ride, $5000 bicycle. Expensive apparel.

 

I ride according to heart rate, on a $1000 flat bar road bike. No colorful jersey. Same gearing as a low end road bike. Roadies look at me funny cause I like the flat bars not the typical drop down bars- drop bars seem to be an informal way of determining if you are a serious rider or not. That's a misconception.

 

Just like us using a  Kamado style grill. How can we possibly smoke/cook on a device that's egg shaped, using a temperature probe?

 

Keep on keeping fit any way you can.

I worked in a bike shop that sponsored a bike racing team. We sold basic to high end bikes. I loved putting together the high end bikes.

 

At any rate knee injury is very common and well known in the biking community. We heard of a good number of cycling vacation trips being cut short.
