TITLE: An Unusual Running Month in Review AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: January 31, 2010 9:06 PM DESC: ----- BODY: A month hardly deserves its own review, especially when it contains no Running on the Road reports. But after so many months off and on, and a November/December stretch of downtown that killed the momentum gained from running my sixth marathon, I am happy simply to have a month of running to report. Five consecutive weeks of increasing mileage, with steady 27-29 mile weeks the last three. The cold snap last week drove me inside for lap running, which means faster miles and more fatigue. Fortunately, they have not led to a return of the symptoms behind my months off and on. My goal for February is steady running; my hope is to increase my mileage slowly but steadily into the mid-30s, where I like to be in the winter. My next big trip is planned for SIGCSE 2010 in Milwaukee, which has a river and a riverwalk. I love to explore new cities on foot. -----
