Running in 2011 – I Managed To Run Over 1000 Miles In One Year!
Altogether, last year I managed to run 1370 miles in 2011. It should have been more but I took it a little too easy in December and have now put on 7lbs.
Still, I’m very pleased with how last year went in terms of mileage. Maybe not so much in terms of speed…
This year I hope to run at least 5 half marathons including 3 in Northern Ireland and the Great Scottish Run too.
I’ve signed up for the Belfast Marathon 2012 and am starting training this coming Monday. It’ll be a blast. I’ll maybe even get to do Dublin this year, after annoyingly getting injured in the last week of training in the Algarve last time around.
Overall though I want to keep on enjoying running. I think if I started pushing myself too much I’d end up hating it and just give up. Defeatist I know, but I am a lazy bastard.
I have just made my way through an entire Tesco Cheeseboard. This is not good form. But I’ll burn it off, so I will.
