2012, Welcome!

Well, its officially 2012. Time for everyone to make new year resolutions. Halfway through 2011 I had decided to shoot for 1,018 miles ran. Come mid November I was set to blow that out of the water, then injury set in and the remainder of the years running was a struggle at best.

I finished with 954.32 total miles ran in 2011. If it hadnt have been for my injury I think I would have gotten close to 1,200 total. Oh well! For my first full year of runing since high school (which was 10 years and 40 pounds ago) I wont complain....

Heres my break down by week...

Week 1 - 10.4 only ran once, two day week....
Week 2 - 5.25 miles. Suffering from dropped cuboid from running in huaraches.
Week 3 - 0. 00 dropped cuboid...
Week 4 - 11.67
Week 5 - 20.54
Week 6 - 7.39
Week 7 - 21.33
Week 8 - 15.34 Ran my first ever half marathon!!! It was my first race since high school, my first half marathon, and my first bare foot race. The Livestrong Austin half marathon. My finishing time was 1:57:36
Which beat my goal of 2:00:00.
Week 9 - 13

Week 13 - 18.99 Ran my third half marathon, the Hermann Memorial Sugarland half marathon in 1:42:39
Week 14 - 10.13
Week 15 - 15.37
Week 16 - 6.27 my first 5k, ran in my VFFs in 20:43 and stepped on a rock with my right foot, causing a bad rock bruise and eventually leading to seismoiditis.... Damn shoes.....
Week 17 - 30
Week 18 - 11.02 competed in a 3.5 mile mud run and took second.
Week 19 - 20.57 did my first sprint tri in 69:02. Not bad for a runner that doesn't swim or bike....
Week 20 - 26.08
Week 21 - 15.17
Week 22 - 2.13 suffering from a sinus infection.
Week 23 - 3.18 still down with sinus issues...

Week 27 - 28.38
Week 28 - 6 down with another sinus infection.....
Week 29 - 24.12
Week 30 - 29.76
Week 31 - 2.5
Week 32 - 17.53
Week 33 - 13.23 4th, and final half marathon of the year, The Hottest Half. Worst race ever, very disappointing to say the least...

Week 41 - 22.8
Week 42 - 17.52
Week 43 - 28.22
Week 44 - 50.68 ran 2 back to back 15 milers on the weekend, this is where the seismoiditis finally started to catch up with me...
Week 45 - 35.98
Week 46 - 34.44
Week 47 - 44.28 ran 2 back to back 20 milers and felt great the whole time! Unfortunately the seismoiditis caught up in a big way....
Week 48 - 0.00 miles. My right foot has gone completely numb due to an alteration in my gait as a result of the seismoiditis. Im at 882.69 miles for the year at this point, 1,000 seems easy!
Week 49 - 0.00 again... Right foot still numb.
Week 50 - 5.02
Week 51 - 11.79
Week 52 - 43.77 in hopes of pulling a miracle out of my ass I shoot for 2 50 mile weeks to hit 1,000 for the year.
Week 53 - 11.05 after a good 10 mile MAF test monday I realize that 1,000 isn't going to happen, and its not worth further damage to my leg.

So, there you have it, my first full calender year of running, 99% of which was done fully barefoot!!!

Hopefully my legs starts acting better soon and I can start taking 2012 down one mile at a time!

  1. Get your crap healed so you can run the 50 and keep my laughing instead of crying... so much. Good job. Given both of our injuries lately I think we will both be in pain. I say we make a promise not to let the other bitch.

  2. Lol, I have to bitch about something our else I don't feel right... I still feel confident that I can finish 50 miles, I'm just not sure about my finishing time now.

    I think we've got it man, just gotta keep on trucking and don't stop till we cross the finish line.
