Earlier this week I was looking at my workout log and realized how close I am to breaking 2,000 miles for the year.
The past 2 years I have broken through that number, but in 2009 it wasn’t until December and in 2010 it wasn’t until November.
Looking at this number got me thinking, what if I could break it this month?
That was on Tuesday.
As of yesterday I am at 1,859.7 which leaves 140.3 miles to go before the 2,000 mile mark. With 19 days left in October including today, that is about 7.4 miles a day if I ran every day.
Well I don’t plan on running every single day left in October, but seeing how close I am to this number has presented a fun challenge in my head and we all know I like a challenge.
Can I get 140+ more miles this month? I know if I was in marathon training this would be no problem with all the long runs, but being in the off season might make it a little more difficult. But I think it can be done, and since I am putting it out there for blogland to see, I am definitely going to do my best! I have been running a lot lately and loving every minute, so I think this would be a fun way to celebrate that.
Let’s see how it goes… 19 more days including today! I better go out for a run.
Are you getting close to any big milestones for the year?
