A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

Mileage

Monday, April 30, 2012

From April 2011-April 2012, I ran 494 miles. That sounds like a LOT of miles. And it is a lot of miles. But, really, that's less than ten miles a week. Totally do-able! 


I've been thinking a lot about what my mileage is going to look like after Indy this Saturday (THIS SATURDAY, PEOPLE!). I know I want to back off of distance for awhile, but I don't want to stop running, so I plan to focus on speed. I was saying to Dan this weekend that even if I only ran two miles a day, that would still be 14 miles a week for this year. That sounds totally and completely do-able. 


So, the 2012-2013 goal is 550 miles... 550 glorious, fast, wonderful miles. And it'll kick off this weekend with 13.1. :) Indy, here we come!

  1. Where/how do you keep track of the miles you've run in a year?

    Hope it stays a little cooler for your run. Good luck & enjoy :) Bling??? Yeah, that's what I'm talkin about...show me some bling!!!

  2. When I ordered Runner's World for the first time, I got a free running log with it and started keeping track. I just recently bought a new one on Amazon (also by Runner's World -- around $10) so I can keep track there. I really like seeing how far I've come!

    Bling time... in 48 hours, I'll have it around my neck! :)

  3. Sounds like a good thing to use. My calendars are all written up with miles run or to be run and any other type exercise I decide to do.

    Post some pictures of your success & have an awesome race!!!
