Yes, Allan is still running even though the Allan Running blog has not seen a bit of activity since the 1st day of the month. I thought I would post a summary for the month of January since I knew it had been a while since I had posted and was surprised to find out just how long it had been.
It turns out that I ran 16 times during the month of January covering a total of 59.79 miles. A pretty respectable start for the year and just enough miles so that I am not falling behind on my goal of running 700 miles this year.
Also stated in my running goals on the right sidebar is to successfully implement the Galloway running method. I have had success using the Galloway method on my long runs as evidenced by this 12.4 mile run on Sunday January 12th. The walk breaks are real easy to locate on the pace and heart rate graphs.
I also had the opportunity to travel during January and of course took my running shoes along. On Sunday January 19th I got in this 4.10 mile out and back along SE 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale. Then later in the same week, on Thursday January 23rd, I disembarked the Royal Princess at the Caribbean island of St. Maarten and got in this 4.25 mile out and back along the boardwalk area. (switch to satellite view for a better representation of the actual route)
Tomorrow I will start February with a run along the beach in Jacksonville Beach. I hope it won't be a month before I post on this blog again.
