Just came back from a 10 miler and noted that I’ve run in excess of 300 miles (482.8 km) since the year started. At the time of writing this post my running shoes carry dust from 5 countries in 3 continents.
This averages 11.5 miles (18.5 km) a week, which falls well below what I planned for the first half of the year. Though, when considering that life happens as well as: a busy business trip schedule, injuries, whether conditions and all sorts of other commitments, then I’m quite ok with it. What matters is that I have been running no matter what.
This summer I am back to training with a group. We are gearing up for a marathon in the fall and, based on last year’s experience, my weekly average mileage will double in the second half of the year. We are following Hal Higdon’s training schedule.
