I was looking back at my running log comparing to where I was last year to where I am now. I noticed that last year, most of my runs were around 3 miles with the occasional 4. Maybe, I went 5 or 6. Once in a while I would go 7, but no that often.
I have noticed that this year, I am doing more 4 and 5 mile runs with the about a run of at least 7 once a week. I have completed a few 9 mile runs and even made it to double digits once. This shows as through the first 6 months of last year, I ran 403.4 miles. This year through the first 6 months, I ran 528.5 miles. That is 125.1 miles or about 21 miles more each month ran. This is also over 124 days running this year rather than 112 days last year or about 2 more days each month.
This averages out to about 4.3 miles per run this year compared to 3.6 miles last year.
How does this year compare to last year?
