I'm not talking about math, although I've always been pretty good at math. In fact, my wife's always impressed at how quickly I can do calculations in my head. Right now I'm talking about stats. Training stats. Lately, Lani's been catching me just looking at my training log. I'm liking what I see. I've never been a really intense runner, at least in the sense of putting in mega miles each week. I'm a believer in the less-is-more training approach. Quality over quantity. Looking at my numbers for March, the quantity of my quality has taken a significant jump. And that is pretty sweet.
March was the very first month in which I have run over 100 miles. I ended up with 114.9. The last time I ran over 30 miles in a single week was in October 2006, the week of my last marathon. During March, I also logged not only one, but two consecutive weeks of 30+ miles. I guess this is a milestone for me, not that these are mega miles or anything. I'm feeling pretty special. Not because I reached any magic number, but because I am feeling really good. I've had some really great runs lately. A lot of confidence boosters for Boston. Just over two weeks to go, and I'll to have some more numbers (not to mention the experience) to be proud of.
