I can run 500 Miles in one month! (Well...maybe...) (Read 2125 times)

     I am a mathematician, but we do make mistakes.

     

    When I was in high school pre-calculus I had a teacher that was mean spirited and not very popular.  I had gotten marked wrong on a question on an assignment.  I raised my hand and stated to the teacher that my Dad had reviewed the question with me and my answer was correct.  The teacher's snide response was "is your Dad a mathematician?".   It felt really good to respond to her that, yes, my Dad had a PhD in mathematics.  Unfortunately, my Dad had made a mistake and I had answered the question wrong so the high didn't last very long.

        Just so that you realize. 1 + 2 + ... + 31 = 31*32/2 = 496. So, you will have to throw in 4 more miles.

         He's right it is actually 496....

           He's right it is actually 496....but ummmmm thats 6 more miles. 

           

          No, he meant that Blaine needs to run 4 more miles to get to 500 for the month.

             He's right it is actually 496....but ummmmm thats 6 more miles. 

             

            I think that he meant that if 496 is the total, 4 more will be needed to hit 500.

             

             

            Anyway, I got to 215 by 1/15. I can't imagine hitting 250 by 1/15 much less 500 by the end of the month. I suppose I could get to 430 by 1/30 and then run a 70 miler.  No.

             

            Go Blaine, go!

              yeah I figured that out as soon as I walked away.

                Go Blaine, go!

                 Well by 1/15 if you were to do that one more mile method you would only be up to 15*16/2 = 120, so you are doing better than the one more mile. I am going to be stoked when I break 100 miles in a month. I think I finally have figured out my injury issues, and hopefully will be able to continue to progress.

                    I can't imagine doing next week, much less the one after Smile

                    It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                       Hell, I haven't even done the mileage he did in the first week.

                         I am a mathematician, but we do make mistakes. However, let me prove it to you.

                         

                        Actually, I proved it to myself a day later, just haven't had a chance to come back and admit I was wrong...heheh.

                         

                        Oh well, just means I'll be around 510 or 520 when I finish...

                        Thanks!

                         

                        I'm still going, got 5 miles in this morning off a day pass at a gym to use their treadmill, I'm hoping the snowmobilers get out and pack down the 8 inches of snow we got over night so that it's easier going this evening. I don't trust the plows around here, even if they *did* start to slow down a little after killing a guy last year.

                         

                         

                        By the way, I don't have this week's contest up yet, but I'll get it up later today and it's going to be a good one.  Will link this afternoon...

                          I'm still trying to grasp the final week....... one word: hardcore.

                           

                          Still the daily graph is looking really cool. Smile

                            Yeah, that graph has been amusing me something fierce for about a week now, heheh.

                             

                            Last night was the first real tough run where I just had zero interest in running while I was actually out there running.  Thankfully, this morning was much better, and hopefully my lunch time run and my evening runs will both be fun too since they'll be nice and short (well, relatively, anyway...)

                             

                            I just put the third contest up on the website, so if you want a free pair of recovery socks, all you need to do is leave a comment:
