After this weekend, I did it. I made a new record for miles ran per month. I am up to 83.4 miles so far in August running 18 out of 26 days. Not too bad. This beats my previous record of 81.2 in April. I broke it with a nice 6 mile run.
My goal for the month of August is 90 miles and running 23 days. I am still on track. I should have the mileage goal reached after my run on the 29th. I may reach it even sooner if I decide to go out for a run on Monday rather than taking my scheduled rest day.
I even have a chance to reach 100 miles for the month if I decide to push myself. I am only 16.6 miles away with 4 days of potential running left this month. Due to a prior commitment on Thursday, I am unable to run. While Friday’s are my usual rest day, it will be pretty difficult to take the day off if I am up to 95 or 96 miles for the month.
I am not going to reach my goal of 23 days running this month. I most likely will be at 21 with a chance at 22 depending on how the week plays out. I am not too disappointed with not meeting this goal as my total mileage for the month is a new record and closing in on 100 miles.
How are you goals for the month of August shaping up?
