4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

August 2010 in Review

Running – 80.8 miles over 13 runs.  The number was only respectable because I had 2 long runs!  Hard to get a lot of miles in as I had 2 family mini-vacations in the month and a 12 day trip to Nairobi, where I only managed 14.2 miles over 4 treadmill runs.  Will need to step this up in the next month as I get ready for Chicago marathon.  I’m at 680.1 miles for the year, still slightly ahead of 1000 pace for the year!  Most impressive stat of my year so far is that I’ve run at least 70 miles every month, even through the worst summer months.  Never ever came close to doing this before, in 17 years of running.  Also, my average per month of August going back to 1999 is only 37.5 miles, so blew that away!

Races – 0

Biking – 10.5 miles over 1 ride.  Not a problem as I was away a lot and otherwise focusing on running.  Looking forward to getting a bunch of bike miles for Sept, as I am signed up for a triathlon on Oct 3.

Swims – 0

Gym workouts – none

Softball – none

Injuries – Nothing really to speak of!

Sicknesses – none
