Miles to Go

Quick post as I have about 3 minutes to BLOG..

August Total Miles= 89.71

Year to Date Total= 687.77

When I set out in 2009 I did not have a Mileage total in mind...heck I didn't even have a 1/2 Marathon or Marathon in my plan...but looking at the numbers and doing some simple Math..

1,000 - 687.77= 312.23

312.23/4 (months left in 09)= 78.05

If I run just over 78 miles per month for the next 4 months I can reach over 1,000 miles in 2009. Being my first FULL year of real running, I would be PROUD to reach such a milestone.

GOAL SET
Tall Mom will run 1,000 miles in 2009!!!

That's my goal too! I have to avg like 87 miles per month but I still think it's doable.

Way to go!

Running, kind of. said...

Is there really only 4 months left in 2009!? Where has this year gone?

Awesome goal! Too bad I have no way to go back and count up all my treadmill runs from earlier this year. Guess I will keep to my weekly goals for now then 2010 set a lofty goal like yours!!!

Great job!

GREAT goal!!! It is my goal too! However, my August total was next to nothing due to my injury. So, I have to kick it up into high gear to make it!!

MCM Mama said...

Great goal! Watch out though 'cause now next year you'll want to beat this year's goal LOL.

I hit 1010.10 (yeah, I have a thing for numbers) last year, so now I have to beat that and I want a cool number, but not sure I can manage 1111 LOL.
