1000

Inspired by Jess, Mel and Marcy's recent posts, I decided to take a look at my mileage for this year.



Not surprisingly, March was my lowest month when I was sidelined with an IT band injury and August was the highest, being one month before my marathon.

So, what's the verdict?

1427 KM this year to-date = 886 miles.

I would have to run an additional 114 miles by December 31st to hit 1000 for the year, or 183K. Out of curiosity, I took a look at my program and wouldn't you know it - I'm scheduled to run 185K. Seems to me it's meant to be.

So now I have added motivation to stick to the plan this month, even through the holidays - I'm going for 1000!
