All the Little Runs
August's mileage has been a bit disappointing. For the first two weeks of the month, my weekly mileage was in the teens, and excepting yesterday's 5 miler, I haven't run anything longer than 4 miles.
That means I'm going to barely coast through the month by meeting my 100 mile minimum.
I could blame the heat, Norah's birthday, the start back to school...but last August, I managed to run 150 miles, and I had all the same factors then as now. Dammit, guess I can't blame anything or anyone but myself for logging so many short runs.
Oh well, it's nothing really to complain about: I keep on streakin and doing my best to log the miles I need, and that's what counts for me right now.
However, I do already have my sights on September's potential mileage because I'm nearing in on 2013's 1000th mile. If I meet my mileage expectation for this week, and round out August, and te year so far, with 880 miles, that means I -- obviously -- have 120 miles to run in September to hit 1000 by the end of that month.
120 miles, 30 days, an average of 4 miles a day.
It'll be my new challenge.
