Running Summary Dec. 7th – 13th 2014

Still having a little right heal pain which I think is achilles tendinitis. The left knee pain has gone away. I was able to pick up a few more runs and up the mileage a little more this week. I am hoping next week will be even better.

November 2014 Summary

In November I ran a total of 51.9 miles at an average pace of 7:45 min/mile.  My mileage for November was really low because the last few weeks of the month I got sick and was fighting what I think is achilles tendonitis. My average pace has dropped to sub 8 minute miles which is excellent. I just need to build my mileage back up at that pace.

So far this year I’ve run almost 900 miles. I am hoping I can break 1000 miles for the year but with my heal and knee pain I might not be able to make it.

November 2014
Total Miles: 51.9 Miles
Avg. Pace: 7:45 min/mile

October 2014
Total Miles: 156.2 Miles
Avg. Pace: 8:01 min/mile
