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.
