After a mentally trying end to 2013, the idea was to make January all about getting back after it. The specific goal was just to get healthy and run as consistently as possible. Feel good about the month overall. After taking a nasty little spill on the trails that banged up the left shin good enough to force a few days off, the last 2/3 of the month was a model of consistent (albeit modest) running. Good enough to end the month with 24 runs and just over 131 miles. If someone had asked how I'd feel about those numbers at the beginning of the month, I would have been thrilled. So, time to work on a real base over February & hopefully be able hit long runs approaching 20 miles by month's end.
