I ran this morning (that's two mornings in a row!) so I have officially logged all the miles I am going to log for the month.
Total August 2017 miles = 153.14
I am ok with this number. I can't change it, obviously, but I also know that it should have been higher. August was a rough month.
Focusing on the positives:
1. I logged at least 100 miles this month, making 8 months in a row of 100+ mile months.
2. I was only 4.22 miles short of the total mileage for July, so although I didn't increase, I maintained.
3. My August 2017 mileage was a 129.1% increase over August 2016 mileage.
My goal is still to PR the half in October. I PRed the half (and broke 1:30) last fall after a less than stellar summer of mileage so while this training cycle hasn't been as tight as my marathon training cycle was, I still think it is an improvement upon last year and that my consistent mileage this year is a big benefit to the race. I want to be in 1:28:xx land for the half. Strava says my best half-marathon effort right now is 1:28:23. I'll take it!
