Another great week – 18.4 miles and closer to my goal

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.

Lazy Routes for the Lazy Runner

I have a a few loops around the streets of the little town where I live. Even though I live on top of a hill (which can make my runs more challenging), there are plenty of permutations to stretch or shorten my routes. Most of the time I lazy, but sometimes I’m not.

Having a few routes in your repertoire is never a bad thing. In fact, for the Lazy Runner, this gives you plenty of chances to be lazy, but still get a good run in. I also find that knowing exactly how much time and effort each route will take, helps to overcome your laziness.
