March: Short mileage, higher speed

Here's the stats for March.

Distance: 212 miles
Average Pace: 7:35
Days run: 23
Average Distance per run: 9.1 miles

I was hoping to be around 240 this month but I'll take 212 given that my pace was :11 per mile faster then February. That and I ran a major half marathon PR without tapering. Actually, considering my academic load, 212 is awesome.

Last time, at grad school...

I was working on finishing my Master's project and preparing for finals. Still don't know how I did on the final (my prof is a really really really slow grader). I did pass my Master's project! Paper and presentation=A!

Okay, back to the real reason you are all reading this blog: running. The more I think about it, the happier I am with my half marathon PR. It gives me so much hope for Boston. My training has been awesome, I've nailed my key workouts and my tune-up race. Just one last 20 miler tomorrow and then its 2 weeks of smooth sailing. Well....two weeks of less running and trying to fight off taper-madness!

I'm trying to get a post together on my thoughts about Boston. Its a big thing for me to be running it. Hopefully that will be up sometime this weekend.

We'll see you next week. Same Bat time, same Bat channel!


  1. Awesome job babe!

  2. that is a sick pace. you are going to leave me in the dust! i'm almost embarrassed to be in the same corral as you

    congrats on the masters project!
