Goal Check: One Month Into 2012
Well January is behind us and I thought it’d be a good time to revisit how I’m doing on one of my running goals–namely, run 2012 miles in 2012. Over twelve months (which is exactly how many months are in 2012) it comes out to 168 miles per month. So far we’re looking good with January coming in at 189 miles.
Now that the 3M Half Marathon is behind me, I’m going to be getting into some serious mileage in training for Vermont. Between now and May I’ll have no shortage of miles. In fact, if all goes to plan, I’ll be closer to 250 miles per month for the next four months. That’ll set me up nicely to take the rest of the year a bit easier. Of course this is all on the premise that I achieve my other goal, which is to qualify for Boston. Dare I say, if I don’t hit my goal, we’ll be ramping up big time for an early Fall race to give it another shot.
So as of now, all systems are a-go and goals are on track. Stay tuned for some news on the race calendar front!
