Well, I met some goals and missed some others. I can’t really complain, as I’ve been reasonably healthy and able to train fairly well. I only dropped down below 90 miles four times (all for races). My lowest week was 80, and my highest week 118. I averaged 96.6 miles per week. I’m on pace for a little over 5,000 miles. Just got to stay healthy!
Goals and results:
15km PR – Got it at Lynn Stew chase 54:13, 2:21 under my old masters PR.
10 mile PR - Missed it at the USATF 10m running 57:51, which was 36 seconds over my PR.
½ marathon PR – Got it at New Bedford with a 1:15:11, 1:37 under my old masters PR.
5 mile PR – Got it at Red Shoe barn with a 27:20.9, 1 second under my old PR.
10k PR - Missed it at the 10k US champs (James Joyce) 34:29, 2 seconds over my PR
12km PR - Missed it at the Bedford Rotary 12k with a 41:59, 14 seconds over my PR
