November Miles

I did get out last night for a short 3 miler (29:17), and I even managed to fit it in between showers, so I didn't get rained on at all. But it was WINDY! So, with that run, my mileage for November was 90.5. Shucks. If I had actually done an 8 miler yesterday, I would have tied my mileage for January, which was my year's highest mileage in a month (95 miles).

Total mileage for the year is 746, and I don't think I'll have a problem getting 54 miles in during December to round out the year around 800 miles. Originally, at the beginning of 2008, I had kinda thought I could aim for 1,000, but incredibly low mileage in June and July prevented that from happening. So, I suppose it will have to remain a goal for 2009.

Always something to aim for.

Anyway, it is still cloudy and blustery today, and it's Monday, after a 4 day weekend, so...yeah...I SO have a "case of the Mondays"!

800 in '08 ain't too shabby, but 1000 in '09 is totally doable!

Great job on your yearly mileage...and good luck with all that grading..sheesh! I used to think wistfully that teaching was the way to go...summers off, etc., until, that is, I taught biology labs in grad school and realized teaching is a job with no end...a job with homework! I give you credit!

I can't imagine doing 1000 miles in a year, that's a great goal!

Wes said...

90.5? Just damn. That IS amazing. Nicely done!!!

Marcy said...

800 is a nice number! Actually now that I look at my year to date numbers we're really close (I've got 742) I think I might just join you in the 800 quest.

Very nice, and great goal for 2009.

We're having a gloomy day here with wet snow and lots of BLAH. I'm also having a case of the Mondays. Poop.

Awesome mileage for the eek, month & year (so far)!

Viper said...

You'll nail 800, no problem. 1,000 is proving to be more difficult than I thought it'd be. Oh well.

Great mileage!!! My November running miles sucked. :<(

Jamoosh said...

I've run 1000 miles in my head. Does that count for anything?

I think that's really good for November! And there's more to take note of than just number of miles. Think of those back-to-back HMs! Impressive stuff. :-)

I was sooooooooo hoping for 1000 this year, but NOPE. I guess it's a good goal for 2009.

Steve Stenzel said...

800 miles is still GREAT!!

MCM Mama said...

800 miles is awesome! Those back to back halfs really helped your numbers.

November was a pretty low month for me, so I'm going to have to rock December to make my goal.

Cara said...

wow that is a lot of miles. could start calling your forest gump, during his running years ;-)

Laurel said...

I hope you hit 800. You can totally do it.

Cassandra said...

You'll hit your goal! That's nothing compared to what you've already done! 1000 in '09! How great. I am going to shoot for half of that. :)

teacherwoman said...

You can do it! :)

Viv said...

Go for it jess and round up that number. At least you will be insome cooler weather in Dec and that should help. Even though the cold freaks me out, I feel like a fish outta water.
90.5 is a big ol number for a month. I thinkg that is like my quaterly number.

Only 56 miles between you and 800! Go for it!
