1,000 miles in 2018

This morning I was out the door for 9am, led by Fit Girl, to complete out last running miles of this year. I was aiming to complete my 1,000th mile of the year.

We decided to get it over and done with first thing, and after another very long sleep… (I’m getting 10 hours on average each night – who knows how I’ll manage getting back to work??!) … we were up and out for 5.4 miles around the Clyde.

It was pretty blowy but thankfully we’d chosen to run west to east to start out so the wind was at our back on the way out, and we were sort of sheltered on the way back.

So after all that, I managed to run 1,000 miles in 2018. I honestly thought with the light cold I had and the need for rest in December that I might not make it, but I scraped the miles together.

If you want to set yourself an annual mileage goal, get the number, divide it by 12, then set yourself a rough monthly mileage goal. Monitor it each month, and particularly in the last few months of the year so that your goal remains achievable.

You don’t need to stick to your monthly goal every month, but maybe overshoot it some months and keep it lower in other months (like months you’re on holiday or not well).

And it doesn’t need to be 1,000 miles like I did this year, it could be 300, 500, 600 or even do it in kms so that the number is / seems higher. (1,000km is about 621 miles) Or try for 2019km, 1,254 miles?

Now I wonder what I’ll get up to training wise in 2019?
