Down to the Wire

At the beginning of the month, I announced my intention to reach my 1,000th mile (this year) by the end of September, and for the most part, I've been diligent in my endeavor.  But, over the weekend, I hit a bit of a running slump.

We were camping in the Keys -- left on Friday, returned on Sunday -- and both the prep, the camping itself, and the return left me wiped out, so I ran minimum mileage those 3 days.  So, I put myself a bit behind in the mileage.

Now, with 6 days left in the month, I need to run 29 miles to achieve my goal.  That's 4.8 miles each day.

Obviously, if I hit 1K on Oct 1st, rather than Sept 30th, the world doesn't end, so there's no "real" pressure to achieve this.  Still.  I set a goal for myself, I like to see it through.

So, for 4.8 miles a day for the next 6 days?  It's on.

I'm sure you can do it if you put your mind to it! Go get your 1k miles!

It's cooled off a bit here in Florida. You can do it!

I am sure you will get it. I am behind on my own 1K by the end of the year goal thanks to an injury

Ooh, this is almost as exciting as watching to see if my baseball team can manage to make it into the playoffs with four games remaining in the season. Good luck! Cheers!

Whoa, I think dividing 1000 by October first is the same as dividing by zero. Bad things happen. Get out there an drun!

You can totally do it. Just throw in one long run and you are good...
