Miles for November

November was an uneventful month race-wise. But, a big month personally, related to goals. I pounded out all of my miles on my new treadmill and loved every moment. I completed a half marathon on my treadmill, as well as a nine mile run on the treadmill while home alone with both kiddos. I have surpassed my goal of running 1,400 miles for the year and am on to my next goal of 1,600 miles. I gradually increased my mileage again this month as well as incorporating longer "cool downs" after my runs and playing with the incline on the treadmill as I recover. I'm already seeing a difference in my pants and how my clothes fit. And, I'm happy to report that I've lost all eight pounds I gained after my marathon in early-October (more on that soon).

November: 116.1
October: 105.9
September: 132.1
August: 158.9
July: 150.5
June: 101.8
May: 163.9
April: 145.2
March: 115.9
February: 116.7
January: 132.5

Total for 2010: 1,439.4

Miles 'til 1,400 mileage goal: ZERO!

  10. Great job! Can you please send some motivation my way???

  11. Way to go!!! I'm with Laura...can you send me some motivation? When I run on the treadmill, which is a staple now that winter is descending, I have to play with the speed and incline or else I go batty! The longest I ran on a treadmill was 19 miles because I was in the middle of training for Boston and the roads were iced over with no end in sight...I had to restart it twice...not the best run but felt inspired as people walked by me at the gym saying..."You're still going?!"

  12. Congrats on the awesome mileage....I know how awesome it feels to get where you want to be.

    I did a 15 and 20 miler on the treadmill last month and I know how tough it can be so great job sticking to it and doing those long runs!!!
