210 in 2010

I read about this running goal 210 miles in 2010. At first I was like whoa that's a lot of miles and i'm new to running. But then I took a second and thought about it. There are 56 weeks in a year so really that's 3.75 miles a week. OK, I didn't just think about it I pulled out the calculator. I can totally do that!  Since it is already February I need to subtract 4 weeks because I really have no idea how much I ran last month. Now i'm down to 52 weeks. Still it's doable. Just for the fun of it I looked to see how many miles a week I would need to run in order to complete 2010 miles this year. Over 38 miles a week...I think not! Perhaps if that included my spin time and running miles but that would just be too much counting for me. I am not a math person.

In other news, my mom and grandma are going to be here tomorrow! Very exciting to have so many visitors...must be the nice weather. That's a joke because as soon as they arrive it is supposed to rain for the next couple of days. Real nice Florida.

  1. I'm trying to run more this year too but I agree 38 miles a week might be a little (lot) more than I could handle. Enjoy your visit with your mom and grandma! Quite honestly I would take Florida rain over Minnesota snow right now so I'm not feeling your pain on that one. :-) Have a great day!

  6. That is really incredible - to be so dedicated to running! It's inspiring, enough to motivate me to do something. Lol. We'll see if I have enough willpower to do so.

    Thought I'd let you know though, there are only 52 weeks in a year.

    Good luck on accomplishing your goal!!

  8. Wow that would be cool to do but I agree that 38 miles a week is a lot! All though I think spinning miles should count, spinning is hard!:)
