February 2011 Running Recap

The shortest month of the year, and one of the “lightest” running months in a while. February started off with a couple of severe winter storms, featuring ice, snow, and record low temperatures, which meant quite a bit of treadmill running. The month ended with unseasonably warm weather. Unfortunately my race was at the end of the month (more on that in a separate post). Despite the winter weather early in the month, I was able to get in most of my key workouts, and the ones I missed on were typically due to a busy schedule, not the weather.

Here are the stats:

  • Total Miles: 151.4
  • Total Time: 22:59:27
  • Average Pace: 9:07/mile

Additional Notes

Reviewing my training log, the month looks pretty good, and I ran consistently. I even had a string of running 7 days in a row, which hadn’t happened in some time. If anything, I didn’t run easy enough, or take the time to rest and recover properly.

  • Easy: 11
  • Tempo: 2
  • Intervals: 3
  • Long: 3
  • Race: 1
  • Shortest Run: 4 miles
  • Longest Run: 14 miles

You might notice that I didn’t do any hill workouts in February. That probably wasn’t the wisest move, given the hilly Cowtown Half Marathon course. Live and learn. Anyway, this month was the 19th consecutive month over 100 miles, and the 7th consecutive over 150 miles—barely.
