August: 118 (That might be a record for me!)
Total for 2012: 766. I can feel my 1000 mile goal getting closer and closer. The only issue, is that I started nursing school this week and I suddenly feel that my life isn’t my own anymore. That is another topic for another day, but I am going to have to work really hard to maintain my momentum heading into the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon…in 37 days!
I need to run another 234 miles to reach my goal. I will need to average 58.5 miles in each of the last 4 months in order to reach my goal. I don’t think that will be a problem for September. I’ll be starting off the month tomorrow with a 22 miler! I am a little concerned that things may slow down post-marathon.
August races: None. *sad face*
Biking: Only one 20 mile ride this month. I usually ride the day after my long runs, but I started to experience some pain in my hip, so I laid off the biking for a while. I’ll pick it up again in a couple weeks. (fingers crossed)
Pushups: I think I was in Week 4 of the 100 push ups challenge at the end of July. I am currently in my second (and a half) time going through week 5. This program isn’t easy, but I do feel that I am getting stronger. So, I’ll keep going, I just won’t get through as quickly as most people. There is also a program for sit ups and squats. I may try those after the marathon.
Looking ahead to September: 22 mile training run, Tough Mudder Wisconsin, and tapering for a little thing called a marathon!
What’s on your schedule?
