At 47 days into 2010, that's how many miles I should have run after the end of today in order to reach my 1,000 mile goal for the year.

So far this year, I have run 49.1 miles. I'm considerably short of my goal at this point. I will need to make up almost 80 miles throughout the rest of the year.

I know that I can achieve this.

There are 318 days remaining, and I have 950.9 miles left to run. That averages out to just a hair under 3 miles per day, or 21 miles per week.

(I'm a math geek, I can't help it).

21 miles per week, I can do. I have two marathons planned for the year, I have no excuse for not running an average of 21 miles per week. Never mind that I did it last year. If I can do that much training, my speed will have no choice but to improve, and as promised I'm not even going to mention my weight.

This weekend, I'm headed to Florida to run the A1A Half Marathon in Ft Lauderdale. I'm looking forward to it, hopefully the short vacation will re-energize me.

1,000 miles for the year is quite the goal, I'm sure all who's doing it will make it. Some day for me. Different goals this year!

Good luck on the half marathon!

You can definitely make up the miles. That is a good goal.
