3.08 miles/2,293 vert./1:02:39 (38:25 up)/131 avg. HR Garmin Data
Went very easy on the up and down, just taking my time and enjoying the lack of wind. Made things feel a lot more peaceful and less hurried/urgent.
Also found a cool way to query weekly/monthly/yearly stats on the Garmin site which saves me a ton of time, as I do not have to keep up on my Excel spreadsheet or mess around with the calculator (both things that I have no time or desire to do anymore).
So, below are my stats for January. I was able to get out for a run on every day of the month (certainly my longest streak ever), even if it was only for a few miles from the house or on my lunch break. I am working on getting over my "if I can't run up a mountain I'll just do nothing" attitude, not even for "training" reasons, but more to just stay fit and healthy (physically and mentally). Because of this new found attitude, I am finding that if I am determined to do so, there are really very few days (if any?) where I truly can't get out for at least a short run (though as things warm up and dry out, I hope to transition to the bike 2 days per week). The hardest part is often times just getting the motivation to suit up and complete the first mile. Even on my worst days, once I am out there and get a mile or two behind me, I want to just keep going. Since it is only January, I have been keeping the intensity appropriately casual (hard for me to do typically).
