1000 Miles in 2016 Update



Good Sunday Morning!!! I had a glorious sleep last night and even got to sleep in this morning and have been super lazy since I got up. Actually I have been catching up on a ton of stuff online, which has been great. I have neglected some of my Influenster and BzzAgent stuff and finally I have gotten it all together again. I have been quitely drinking my coffee and cleaning up the apartment a bit. It has been a great morning and shortly I will be running to the mall to get something and then planning on spending the afternoon with the TV off and a book or two in hand.

But before I log myself off, I wanted to update my 1000 miles in 2016 challenge I have given myself. Starting on January 2, I set a goal for this year to run 1000 miles in this year. While the first half of the year has been a bit rough, and I still have some ways to go, 8 months exactly. I know I can do it. I just have to buckle down but I am so proud of how many miles I have covered so far.

January: 50 miles
February 42.97 ( rough month)
March: 45 miles

After 3 months I am at 137.97. Now I am calculating just running miles, not walking or cross training. I have to average around 108 miles per month, which I know I can totally do. After Iron Girl next week, which is 13.1 miles, I have no more halves on my plate until the end of the year. So my running will be all based around just how I am feeling and I love long distance running, so I am positive I am going to run just for the heck of it and a lot will be just long runs.

I am determined and motivated and inspired to complete this goal by December 31. Plus for every mile I run this year, I pay myself a dollar, so any even more bonus to get out there and get moving!!

Any goals you set this year and how is your progress thus far?
