as a result of the june north/south mileage challenge at the "letters and opinions" runners world on-line forum, i decided to recap my june mileage stats. it's easy enough to do since i started using the running ahead on-line training log to record the data. i just added the mileage widget to the sidebar!
i logged a total of 241.7 miles for june (27 running days out of 30). june is well below my 2008 high of 307.9 miles logged in march, and well above the low of 190.3 miles run the prior month, may. i finished the first half of the year, as of june 30, with 1,410.2 miles.
i ran 6 races in june, from 1 mile (w/katie) to 50 miles, with a trail marathon to kick off the month. the june races totalled 98.5 miles, almost half of all my june miles. for the first half of the year, i ran 28 races. the 2008 races totalled 490.8 miles, almost one-third of my first half mileage.
looking ahead, while i'm a bit short of 1,500 miles at the half-way point, i'll try to finish the year with 3,000 total miles.
update: results of the l & o north/south challenge:
North 22879.41 total miles (200 of 216 posted = 92.5%)
South 24229.67 total miles (204 of 218 posted miles = 93.6%)
Congratulations to Team South!!
