I like graphs.
It might be sad to admit, but I do. I like how my running makes graphs in Garmin, and other apps.
Look at this graph from my friend Grant from Wick who ran 10k a day for a month in September last year – he did it for charity and did great to keep at it and achieve it. (Not sure what happened towards the end with the blip!)
… all over the place… based on increased training around marathon time in April and October. Then reduced training due to injury / required rest.
Now, I’m on a roll with my 100 miles a month target. It’s really motivating me to get out running 3-5 times a week. I managed 100 miles in January and February, and now I’m on target for 100 miles in March.
With 7 days to go, I have 22.5 miles to go, which should be fine. 4 runs should do it.
Now I just need to see if I want to do this all year, to see if I can get a level graph (100 miles a month) for the full year. We will see!
Do you have any goals this year that are motivating you? Maybe knee that aren’t events?
