I would run 500 miles and I would run 500 more

Marina..to win an awesome piece of bling to proudly hang upon my door!  When Awesome Virtual Running Events announced a 2017 1000 mile challenge, I just had to enter, I’ve always been a high mileage man so this appeals to me immensely.

My goal for 2017 is in fact 1,500 miles and during the year I want to do a 200 mile month.  Maybe I’ll award myself the medal when I’ve done both of these things but then again, maybe i’ll just get it when I’ve done 1000 like everyone else!

I have often observed that when I do high mileage, I do my fastest times in races.  It’s a correlation but whether  or not it’s cause and effect it continues to hold true.  This doesn’t work for everyone because many of my running friends don’t do nearly the same mileage as me but run a lot faster; it’s not fair.

Although  I have been taking it easy of late, there is such a thing as being too cautious so although I wasn’t planning to run today, I went out for 6 miles.   This went well and I think a 100 miles for February is definitely do-able.
