Well, it’s been 26 weeks, 182 days, 6 months, and I’m almost half way through my goal. My goal to run 500 miles in 2015 has been a challenge, certainly filled with ups and downs, but I’m proud to say I’m just about on track.
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted an update, but I’ve been very good. Two weeks ago I was a bit sick on that Saturday and was unable to do a planned 5 mile run, so I ended up short with just over 8 miles. However, I’ve been trying to be as aggressive as possible to make up for the few cold winter weeks that I slacked off. I’ve decided to try and do two “long” runs on the weekends of 5.3 miles each day. That way I get my baseline of 10+ miles in every week and then anything during the week is gravy.
So as of now I’m 190 miles in, which is 38% of my goal. As you can see from the graph below, I’m still not on target. In order for me to get back on track, I need to reach 250 miles by June 30, 2015. That’s another 60 miles in 21 days. That means I’ll need to run 20 miles a week. I doubt I’ll do that, but another few good weeks and I should be able to get there.
