I Gotta Get to 1000 in 2012!

My goal for 2012 was to run 1200 miles but due to my injuries this year, I know that is not going to happen. I just realized on Wednesday that I am 90 miles short of hitting 1000 for the year so I readjusted my goal. Based on the plan that I am kind of following, I think I will slide in right around 1000 miles! I really want to make it happen so if I can stick with it, I will be happy :)
I am still hoping to run the Surf City Marathon in February if I can stay injury free and feel that it is safe to proceed. I am not sure if I will meet my sub-four goal but I am going to go for it anyway. This weekend I am planning on a 15 miler so we will see how it goes. I think it is safe to go for it since I ran a half marathon last Sunday and felt fine afterward. I have another half marathon coming up on 1/13/13 so the 15 miler will be a good training run for this race.

I have to get going on the race recap for the Holiday Half Marathon but haven't been doing  much blogging or reading your blogs. I am behind and need to get caught up. My time has been consumed with funeral arrangements, phone calls, and just keeping a close eye on my Grandma to make sure that she is hanging in there.

 What is your goal mileage for 2012? Are you on track to meeting or exceeding your goal?

  3. Nothing like some fun pressure to get you where you wanna be :) I'm in a similar boat, so trying to get to my little goal too.

    Good luck to us both!!

  4. I had hoped to hit 1200 this year.....and with 2 weeks left, 1100 is going to happen, but 1200 is out of reach (would have to average 8 miles a day to reach it). Considering that I ran 2 marathons this year, I'm pleased with where I'm at, so I refuse to consider it a "fail".....just another goal to slide into next year!

  5. No goal mileage for me--I haven't kept track at all this year!

    I love your goal, though. Get 1,000 for your grandpa. Thinking of you, Sandy.
