Another goal of mine is to run a certain amount of miles next year. 2009. Now i have absolutely no clue what is considered a “normal” amount of miles for someone like myself. So, i am guessing somewhere around 1000 miles??? Again, i have no clue. I just know i will start counting my mileage on January 1st and keep going until December 31st 2009.
2009 is now coming to a swift close. 24 days. 99 miles. There was a point in the year that I seriously doubted I would hit 1000 miles. I am still not 100% sure that I can do it but I have decided to give it a go. And once I decide on something, I am in it.
I have had unbelievable support both on Twitter and Daily Mile. What a show of support that fellow runners bestow on each other! I have at least 3 folks actually running the mileage with me! How freaking awesome is that? Very very awesome!! Runner’s ROCK!
So, I have written out a plan of sorts for me to complete the mileage with a few days off to rest my legs. But mostly, I’ll be running. I have decided that most of my runs will be slower than usual UNLESS I feel I can push it and then I will try for a speedy run. I also want to do some hill work which means some Prospect Park ~ Central Park runs.
I have a 4 mile race on Saturday and I am not quite sure what my race strategy will be just yet. I am working on formulating that in my mind and most probably I will decide on race day. Mostly for me, its just getting in the miles at this point.
I have also decided that there will be no mega celebration upon hitting the 1000 mile mark. I will quietly acknowledge it and probably do a dance?
You know, since I’ve got two feet and all. So, you can see why that would be private right? So, yes i’ve got two feet. They work, i think.
So, 1000 miles by December 31st 2009. You with me?
It’s the athletes job to learn to do the hard things, easily!!
