My first race of 2018 is coming up in a very short time: the PR Mile on Jan. 13. So this past week I got out and did a couple of faster mile runs. If I want to beat my last year’s speed of 6:51 I will have to keep pushing, as I was running an 8:00 and a 7:50. But it still appears doable.
I also worked on my bicycle miles. My annual goal is 3000 miles, and I was right on tempo Dec. 1. Today I still have 168 miles to go. So the next two weeks I have to do a bit more than 10 miles a day. Still doable again, but tighter to the goal than I wanted at this stage.
