Add another 474 for velo and that's 1449 miles moving forward.

After a week off, I'll do some light running for the rest of the year; maybe 10-12 miles a week. Maybe I'll do a 5K or two before years' end but that's it for now. A spring marathon would require training to begin the day after Christmas so that seems unlikely at this point. For 2012, I'll initially plan on another half in the spring and then a full in the fall. I have some races in mind already. Let's see how I feel mentally and physically in six to eight weeks.

Dow Skids 600, Worst Day Since Credit Crisis
Senator Kerry may want to blame the Tea Party for this too. Senator, I have news for you: if the Tea Party were even half as influential and you seem to think they are, Obama would have been impeached and removed from office by now.

Running: 548 miles, approximately 86.5 hours.
Cycling: 202 miles, approximately 18.6 hours.
I'll run a half-marathon in the fall and then another marathon next year.

I did it. I ran twenty miles today in ~3:13; 9:40 pace. Pinnacle of training has been reached and the tapering begins. I feel pretty good, albeit a little sore. It rained, and rained hard at times, for the first fourteen miles. After you've run fourteen miles in heavy rain, it doesn't matter anymore if it doesn't rain for the next six.
I'm glad the big 2-0 is behind me. The marathon will be hard but I'm going to be ready.

After this week, tapering begins. Mileage is reduced and runs are more for maintenance. It's funny to look down at a ten or twelve mile run instead up at it.
It is now twenty-eight days until the marathon and I'll be ready.

My goal for the run today was 2:22:30 (9:30 pace) and I finished in 2:25:23 which isn't too bad. It's not going to win me any awards but running 15 miles at a 9:41 is what it is and it isn't sitting on a couch saying "I need to get in shape."
As I've said before, there's a big difference between "I will" and "I should."
