500 Miles

I reached a small milestone today. 500 miles! Of course, my goal for this year is to run 1,100 miles, so it means only 45% of the total mileage, and another 600 more miles to run to achieve my goal, but as a matter of fact, I am sticking to my 20-week program, and based on the amount of mileage that I am supposed to run with it, I’ll probably achieve my goal early September, if not, before the Boston Marathon Registration opens. I am pumped up and going to keep the momentum going to successfully complete this program! And the end result is the Boston Marathon qualification.

It took 141 days.

Or 58 hours and 48 minutes.

Of course, it represents only 45% of my goal. But like I talked about it before, my 20-week program ends in the week in August when I am going to run the Santa Rosa Marathon (August 23), my first target race as a Boston Marathon qualifier.

And then 3 weeks later, I would be running the Ventura Marathon (September 13), the other qualifier. Considering the amount that I would rack up during the time between the two races, I have no doubt that it’d help me surpass my goal easily.

And then, there’s this year’s Long Beach Marathon (October 11), which I’ve already signed up for in the name of ‘unfinished business.’ So, I am confident that I will achieve my goal well ahead of the year end.

Tonight’s 4 miler didn’t go down easily as usual. I could tell that my body was quite fatigued, and it is from yesterday’s interval runs. My legs were simply not up for it.

I am a bit worried about tomorrow’s 7 miler, but hope tonight’s sleep will help. I’ll call it an early night tonight.

How was your run today? Any mile stone to celebrate?

Thanks for reading.
