Logged mere 130 miles. Nothing special, just a slow start. I do compare my current work with what I did in 2007 which is my best year in running so far.
Jan 2007 175.71 mi avg.pace 9:38
Jan 2008 130.08 mi avg.pace 8:59
Target mileage for Feb 08 is 200+ mi.
Last year I had seven months with 200+ miles, won't be satisfied doing the same things and I guess still have chances to hit 3000 this year.
P.S. Thanks Paul, (Man, I lost access/pass to my ..here@y.. mail account so can't restore it, can't write there now, will visit Astana in March) yes the weather is Superb for Jan-Feb period. But this season is not over yet, as for me, I better get ready for the worst scenario in February. I always have my hat-balaclava with me, you know, wind is so quick to suddenly appear here... We have less snow than last year, so can run faster.

Bill is a clever guy, I agree with him about Beijing. He could have been Great in Moscow 80 so he knows what he's talking about.
