My goal this year is to go 1000 miles. I can run, bike or walk or do whatever I want to get there but I have to get in 1000 miles this year. For any of you math peeps out there, I am obviously a bit behind where I should be. 1000 miles divided by 12 months is 83.33 miles per month. In January I had 53.35 miles and in February I had 59.32 miles. So I definitely need to make up some ground here. I need to go roughly 88.733 miles for the next 10 months to reach my goal. I am starting to wonder if I am out of my league here.
I track my progress and my standings in this challenge on Endomondo.com As of today I am currently in 134th place out of 236 people. I personally don’t think the standings are all fair since the top leaders are well over 1000 miles already and are all bikers. But whatever! Guess I can go out and bike 10 miles and make up some ground but I probably wont. LOL
I am running faster and I am feeling much more comfortable with my runs. I am hoping as the year progresses that this will only become easier to do and that I will be running 6 miles in an hour soon. LOL YES I know wishful thinking right? But this is still my goal and I plan to continue to work at it until the end of the year. And if by chance I don’t make this goal then I think I will be pretty damn proud of the miles I did get anyways. Hell I am pretty happy with having 126.77 miles in already. I think that is an accomplishment all in itself.
I also plan on signing up and running a 5K race soon. The 5K in Houston was a walk not a race so this would be my first 5K race for the year. I also plan on being able to run as much of it as I can. So we will see how that goes. I am building my confidence up and think it will happen sooner than later. 🙂
