Today marks the fourth Saturday in a row I was able to get in a run. It was a bit nippy, but warmed up quickly as the sun came out. This also marks three weeks in a row of a full running and walking schedule. This week’s running was good – to relatively fast 5 milers – a long 8 miler and what I believe I could call today’s run – a recovery run.
This week I was able to cover 27 miles – in two walks and 3 runs. Which brings my monthly total to 86.5 miles. This makes me really happy. Why? I have now beat November’s total of 78 miles. This means this is the best monthly mileage since June of last year where I ran 93 miles. Only two other months in 2015 saw more mileage – April with 92 and March with 100. As you can see, I am a scant 14 miles from my best mileage in a year. I really want to break June and April’s totals – which could be done with a walk and a run – Monday and Wednesday’s runs should do it.
So I am making progress and persevering. Let’s all press on!
