1,000 miles running target for 2018

Those of you who have followed me for a while will know that in 2017 I set myself the challenge of running 100 miles a month.

I found it very motivating to do, and by the end of the year I managed it (with a slight rearrangement for July and September to account for holidays, and running too much in July).

I did 1,200 miles for the year (an avg of 100 miles a month) and I got a pretty cool Garmin graph out of it:

This year I decided not to do the 100 miles a month, but instead to aim to round up my monthly miles to the nearest 5 or 10 miles. Still motivation to run, but more flexibility and not the need to cram it all in to one month.

Here’s where I’m at with it:

Jan: 100
Feb: 105
Mar: 100
Apr: 80
May: 75
Jun: 50
Jul: 90
Aug: 80
Sep: 70 (after this Sunday)

So that will be … 750 miles in 9 months.

And if I want to run 1,000 miles this year, which would be nice… I have 250 to go, in 3 months = about 85 miles a month.

In winter it’s easily to maybe do less running with the cold weather and shorter days, but hopefully this target of around 85 miles a month for the next three months will keep me on track with it.

Ps: can you tell I like numbers and graphs?
