Masters Running


July Masters Miles (Read 48 times)

    When I saw WildChild's post yesterday with the Prime Number table, I had to do something.  So I ran to and from the Mailbox last night to add 1/10 of a mile to my monthly total.  So ...


    71 miles for July.  Count me Prime!  (That is *really* Lame.)

      Thanks, Carolyn!


      Pretty sure 183 isn't prime, so


      July: 182.9

      YTD: 1309


      PRs in 200m (34.8), 600m (1:58.5), 1500m (5:39), all on the track for the local running club's summer track series.

        July: 204


        Posted a PW half the second half I was a wimp. Yeah.

        I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day. (for now)


          thanks Carolyn!   what a beautiful picture.     I love the yellow flowers, they're so perky.


          I haven't posted monthly miles in a long long time!      will slip in here because, it's the first time I've hit 100 in a long long time, & because I'm just 1/2 of MilkTruck.


          a non-prime 102 for July.   I have no idea of ytd miles because I've been sketchy at logging ... only have 17 in for june right now & I know that's not right...    did hit the 5000 mark a couple of months ago.


          I've had some major rehabbing for the last year or two... it isn't over yet ( is it ever?)   but is at the manageable state.   I do have to watch it, my back is hurting as I type... so the duct tape brigade has my permission to intervene.... within reason ; ).


          yay everybody!

                          Well, I had no PR's and I had one of the lowest miliage months in a very long time, but I did meet a lot of great people and ran the best course I've ever run on at the Light at the End of the Tunnel Marathon!  Oh, and I had prime number...which I would have never known about if it weren't for wildchild...
