1000 miles (Read 737 times)

    I did it yesterday. Pretty stoked. Fall marathon fell through, but still running consistently. Really excited considering last year I only did 696 miles for the whole year.

      I will be hitting 1k tomorrow, assuming I don't lose a leg or something in the meantime. Nice work, Ryan. Smile BTW, what happened to your marathon?

        I trained for about 3-4 weeks, and then I was away from my home for three weeks straight, which doesn't sound bad. The first week I was at a conference in WV, no biggie, could have trained then. The second and third week I took the youth group from my church to church camp....ever tried to train in the middle of being in charge of teens? That's part of the reason, plus I still have some other big trips coming up this fall. I just had too much going on to try to fit in a marathon. I love running, but I never want my life to fit around my running...there's too much pressure there. I was getting too stressed the day before my first week away and just decided I can still run, maintain a good base, and feel good about it, and then train come spring time.

        Consistently Slow

          Congrats. Hope to break 1000 this year. Run < 500 last year. 500="" last=""></ 500 last year.>

          Run until the trail runs out.

            Ahhh...Ryan, I totally get that. With my injury issues I have pretty much come to terms with the fact that until I am at the start line, there is no 100% guarantee that I will be able to run the race I am currently training for. It really bothered me for a while, but then I started looking ahead at the possibility of a Spring Marathon if this one falls through. There's always another race. Smile

              Yeah, plus it gives me a chance to look at shorter races. To my credit I have 2 marathons and a 15k. Before Christmas, in my immediate area there is another 15k, a 5k, a 4 miler, and a half-mary...to which I am considering running all of them...why not? Good luck to you zoomy.

                Ooh, those shorter races are some of my favorite distances. I think the alternative sounds awesome. Big grin I hit 1k tonite. Now just 500 more for the year...barring injury it shouldn't be a stretch. Smile
