I hit my miles goal for the year (Read 336 times)

    Last year, I set a miles goal of 2,500 and fell just short.  This year, my goal was 2,600 and I crossed that line yesterday.  Next year, I have set it at 2,750.  Don't know if I'll ever reach 3,000.

    Short term goal: 17:59 5K

    Mid term goal:  2:54:59 marathon

    Long term goal: To say I've been a runner half my life.  (I started running at age 45).

        That's great, LTH!

         

        With 2 weeks to go still, I should be over 2650 miles for the year myself. With 6 marathons,  complete with 6 tapers and 6 recovery periods low on mileage, I think it isn't too bad!

                          You can easily hit that goal using this formula:

                           

                          Run 51 miles on your 51st birthday

                           

                          Run 25 miles on Dec 25 in honor of Christmas

                           

                          Run 30 miles on Labor day in honor of all those who work hard

                           

                          Run 4 times on July 4th, 6 miles each

                           

                          And run 20 miles on the ides of March and you'll get 2750.   Easy as Pie.

                              I did not and will not hit my mileage goal for the year. Anyone want to console me?
