01.19.2018 6 miles today, 23 miles for the week, but the foot feels better

I took yesterday off as I wanted to be smart about the foot pain.  I decided I wouldn't lose anything in a day.  Even with yesterday off, I still got in 23 miles for the week.  I consider anything over 20 for the week to be productive.

My 6 miler today was inside and I kept the pace slow and comfortable so I wouldn't overdo the foot.  I am happy to report that the foot was a non issue.  I didn't feel a thing.  That being said, I am going to move from my older Asics that I have been training  with, to my new, Hupanas from Hoka One One.  I ran only once in them so far, but it was nice, soft, and comfy.  You can read my write up on the Hupana here, from a couple weeks ago.

I am at 86 miles total for the month of January and I have at least 8 days left.  This should end up being one of my strongest months ever, as a whole.  I have just under 2 months before the half marathon.  I am going to stretch out the long run several times and hit some painful speed work sessions.  

Tomorrow, or Sunday, I am going to release my goals for the year.  They are a bit lofty, and I am happy about it.  I want to forget about the lackluster 2017.  I need to get some stuff done.
