I finished the month of January with about 170 miles and a little over 15K of vertical. Both are about 20% behind my monthly average to get to my goal of 2500 miles and 215K for the year. I am neither surprise nor concerned that I am a bit behind right now. My hope is to approach the entire year like one long race, start slowly and just keep gaining momentum. Things like nutrition and fat efficiency are coming back slowly. Overall, I feel like my paces are pretty far behind, but I have done relatively little speed work the past few months. Of course the constant variation in weather makes that somewhat hard to measure.
