February Mileage, and thinking about my next trick.

I usually post this on the last day of the month. But on the last day of February, uh, hello, I was running a marathon.
 
February miles: 172.09
Number of runs: 19
Total time: 23 hours, 25 minutes, 56 seconds
Pace: 8:13 minutes/mile
 
Total miles for 2009: 366.84
Number of runs: 40
Time: 2 days, 1 hour, 43 minutes, 36 seconds
Pace: 8:07 minutes/mile

This morning I ran for the first time since Cowtown, waddling through a three-mile run in 27:41. The first mile was ugly brutal, a 10-minute-mile, as my legs tried remembering what it is they used to be so good at. By the middle of Mile 3, they had warmed up somewhat and I was able to move along the Trinity Trails at about an 8:30 clip. I was soooo glad to stop.

I think I'm done with marathons until at least the Fall I think. But there are some half marathons I want to get signed up for and I think the first will be the Oklahoma City Half at the end of April. This has a companion Full Marathon (OK, its the Oklahoma City Marathon with a companion Half Marathon) and it is put on in memory of the bombing of the federal building there in 1995.

I usually take 2 weeks off from running (I know, it kills me). One week completely off and one when I cross trainined. Fall marathons yeah...that sounds interesting

I'm thinking about doing the OKC full after running the Cowtown full. Might be too much but I think I'd be a bit more leisurely up there.

I haven't yet run since Cowtown b/c my foot's killing me. It's about to drive me crazy!

the first run after a marathon is usually tough! it always feels weird to me, like i've never done it before or something. i like your month/year breakdown. it's a cool way to look at it! enjoy a break from full marathon training, and kill your half pr? hmmmm....
