January Boomer Miles (Read 674 times)

    beautiful pic Wildchild - some pretty impressive january totals i can add 88.38 for the month of January - my goal is for 100 miles/month - will have to stop letting that little thing called work get in the way - reading all these posts totally gives me inspiration and motivation!! away with the january blues and on to Fabulous February!!


      40.7 miles. A personal best for me, for running that is. Do I get a certificate or something for making you all look so good? I expect that my mileage will increase through the year as I'm just a humble newbie coming off an injury. I'm shooting for 1000 km in 2008.
      Have you got a flag?
        fbgrrl - as a Back of the Pack-er AND a Lowest Mileage on the Masters/Boomers thread kinda girl, I really appreciate you posting your miles. I'm so glad to have some company in the 40-50 mile per month (vs. per week) bracket. I'm also aiming for 1,000K this year - that pace bunny sure is a great motivator. Eliz

          Foiled again Evil grin I thought I would be the boomer with the lowest miles for the month, it seems I tied Tet. Drat 3.2 miles for me, but Hey, I did set a PR. the most miles of any month in 2008! I promise to have a bigger month in February. Hey, It's a leap year so we have an extra day to run! Dave

            I never though I'd ever have the same PR as divechief! Smile but not to worry as you were out running on the Resolution Run/Dip 3.2 mile race course for six less minutes so I'm happy to defer Minimalist-of-the-Month honors to my favorite boomer brother. Besides, I got it in December. Incidentally, are you thinking doing the Gaspy cold turkey as I got to do with Dr. Vivian (in six hours) in last year's Valentine Marathon with you and arf?

              I am only registered for the 1/2, and yes, my only "training" has been some time on the elliptical, but I will be quick to drop if the foot acts up. My real goal is to enjoy the Florida weather, and to spend some time with my best friend. Dave
                Thanks, wildchild. Smile 67.5 miles for me. Dark Horse

                        Only 68 miles for me, 109kms, lowest since the heat of August. Due to a bad cold followed by an ankle injury if you are taking excuses! Simon.
