Hitting 2k lifetime miles at the turn of the year made it really easy to calculate what I wanted my goal mileage for this year to be...
[Nike+ isn't working tonight, so I just did a LOT of math by hand]
Here's what the last few years' totals have been:
2010 2011 2012 2013
283.7 697.43 559.0 349.74
That's not an upward trend. That's a downward trend. And what's even more upsetting is that the month-to-month comparisons are all over the place. So this year's goal is to establish a routine of running that evens out my year. I'm planning to average 10 miles a week. That's a pretty simple goal. So there it is.
This week was my best week in a few months- 13 miles! So far, here are what my Januaries look like:
January 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014
0.0 89.9 42.3 8.54 22.1 (so far)
I'm right on pace. Yay for me!!
