August Masters Miles Awards (Read 420 times)


MM #5616

    If one could run without getting tired, I don't think one would often want to do anything else. - C.S. Lewis

     

     

    Okay, masters, time for the monthly miles recap!  Hope it's been a good month for everyone.  Post your running, biking, swimming, walking, hiking, and/or skipping miles, and any PRs or other notable achievements.  Awards as usual for most miles, fewest miles, average, median, cool totals, and prime numbers.  I always look forward to everyone's posts!

    I hammered down the trail, passing rocks and trees like they were standing still.

      Beautiful trail photo as always, Carolyn, and probably one I could actually run on, since it's nice and flat there!

       

      I think I win the award for first poster in the thread, though not anything else....

       

      August = 157.7 miles

      YTD = 1034.9 miles

       

      Thanks once again!

        August 550 miles

        YTD 4,486

         

        August included my 1st 5k run since 2007 (?) in 18:27 - Man did that hurt the whole way

         

        It also included a dramatic taper to prepare for the 24 hour race this weekend - It's time to make a big withdrawl on that training and blow it all in the next 48 hours.

            Shocked I'm almost embarrassed to post this after seeing what DoppleBock's totals are but - as my 8 year-old nephew always says "Aunt Jeanne, you get what you get and you don't have a fit."

                  OM, that trail is nowhere near flat!  Here's the elevation profile from that run.  I think that picture was taken at about mile 2.4 on the little tiny flat part.  But you could certainly run on it anyway!  It's much more runnable than some parts of the trail I took you on.

                  I ran 200.5 miles in August, my 2nd highest month ever.    I considered doing a short run this morning because I only needed 1.8 miles to set a new record, but decided I really need to start tapering at some point for this darn marathon on Monday... so I'm taking a rest day. Smile   I slept an extra hour this morning instead.

                   

                  ETA:  a highlight for the month was meeting Tramps and Tribee!

                  I hammered down the trail, passing rocks and trees like they were standing still.


                  just a simple cat

                    181.9 miles (after tonight's run Smile )

                      2. Open pantry. Nothing to eat.

                      3. Lower standards & repeat.

                        August running: 136 miles

                        YTD: 896.7 miles

                         

                        2 races in August 1AG in both: 2 mile run (PR, first time at this distance) and a 5K

                         

                        cycling: 109 miles

                        Go DB

                          212.6 for August, just under 6 miles shy of the highest mileage month in a year. As it is, it's the second highest. After the June and July I had, I'm very happy with this, and the fact that I feel pretty good.

                           

                          1354.3 for 2012 YTD, and ahead of the 2k pace bunny once again! Yay!

                            112.1 miles for August, a 12% increase from July, so I'll take it.  I am hoping to increase by 10 miles per month until I am maxed out.

                             

                            Go DoppleBock!!!
