There was lots of proposing going on in twitter running circles today. Proposing we went for a leap year run. After all we won’t get the opportunity to run on 29th February for another 4 years!
So I checked my February mileage. 92 miles. Guess what… Yes, 8 miles it had to be and take advantage of the extra day! Rather than being totally crazy and going to BMF and then running 8 miles I wore my garmin for the class so I would only have to make the miles to 8.
Leap year run part 1. A good BMF class, lots of running, mainly fast intervals and I got my daily twitter boot camp (50 squats, lunges, press ups, situps) and plankaday knocked off in between runs. The class clocked up 3 miles running and I debated whether to carry on while I was in Hyde Park and run the remaining miles. However I was hungry and my legs were already beginning to feel wobbly after not enough breakfast to fuel those sprints! So I came home and ate lots before going out this afternoon for a more gentle paced 5 miles with the Bee Gees. Leap year run part 2.
So that’s 100 miles run in February and 255 so far for 2012. February is my 4th highest monthly running mileage and only behind totals for months when I have participated in Janathon or Juneathon and run everyday. This month I’ve had 12 rest days!
Now I’ll think I’ll have a little sit down…
