I'm up to a touch over 416 miles as of the end of April, which means I'm pretty much exactly on, possibly a smidge ahead of, schedule. This last week or so has been a "light week", as I'm trying to prevent my legs falling off on Saturday morning while running a 5K race, my sixth day in a row of running. The next weekend, the 19th, I have a 10K, so this will probably be an "easy month" compared to the last two.
Run Like You Stole It is going pretty well. 218.84 miles completed as of March 11, so I'm not exactly ahead of schedule, but then, I'm not exactly behind, either. If I slowly increase weekly mileage at the same sort of clip as last year, I'm more than set to hit 1200. Even if I maintain, I'm probably set. This is assuming no major illnesses or injuries. Thankfully, I've been blessed in the lack of injury department.
Had my best weekly total at 26.66 miles just last week and I've finished Maskerade and Feet Of Clay in audiobook form, mostly while on the trot or crosstraining in some fashion.
I've also thoroughly enjoyed the new running app/g
Got so stinking close to getting 100 miles right off the bat, despite the cold temperatures, getting back up to (ha!) speed after some holiday time away from running and the craziness that is Stuff I Have To Do In January At Work. Topped out at 94.54 miles.
I am trying not to be annoyed that my usual five-mile-and-a-bit run would have put me over the top or near enough as to be rounded up even by Rufus Drumknott. Especially as I actually overslept one warm morning and didn't get a run in that day.
Still, the legs are working, I'm cross-training a bit and I'm listening to those audiobooks, and we've even had the occasional morning where I c
For anyone who might actually be interested, I did manage to complete my slightly Discworld-themed 2011 resolution to perambulate at some speed 1000 or more miles before the year ended. That's apparently the distance, round trip, between Ankh-Morpork and Lancre. http://fwm.kintera.org/ladysybil
Having braved snow, sleet, rain, sun, humidity, triple digit temperatures, hills, marauding trolls, my own klutziness in the form of stubbing my toe and scraping the same knee twice within two months (I did this in two separate states, even, and thoroughly scared the bejeebus out of some random stranger in Nashville by skidding along the sidewalk, I'm
Happy New Year, folks.
As is traditional, I've got myself a fitness-related New Year's Resolution in place. It's sort of a Discworld-themed one, oddly enough, and it's for a good cause. I plan to run from Ankh-Morpork to Lancre in 2011, which Wikipedia tells me is 1000 miles.
A lot of the enjoyment I get out of running is simply because it's a time set aside not only to keep my body in good working order (and listen to Terry Pratchett audiobooks), it's a time set aside to feel grateful that I'm physically able to run. So I thought it rather fitting that I tie it in to a modest fundraising goal on behalf of Free Wheelchair Mission, an organi
