3000

I just got home from the Towers Time Trial and when I added my day's 11 miles (3 mile run with Ean around the park this afternoon + 1 mile warm-up for Towers + 7 miles up and down Towers) to my cumulative miles for the year I hit 3000!  I have shot for 3000 miles the past two years, but came up short with 2348 miles in 2009 and 2725 in 2010.  It looks like I'll finish this year off with 1000 miles more than I ran just two years ago.  This has been the year of big training miles and I am hoping that this year of building lots of base will pay off with some racing break throughs in 2012.

  1. Good job, Alex. That's a lot of miles. I've almost kept (half) pace with you. I hit 500 miles for the year the same day you hit 1000, the T&H race and run to the bagel shop. I'm now a week away from hitting 1500.

  2. Nice! We still want to know what BWT and MBWT represent. We took a stab at them last week but clearly our estimates were incorrect...

  3. Thanks guys. Scott, BWT and NBWT are for Brooks Wear Test and New Balance Wear Test. I have to keep track of the miles that I run in my wear test shoes, but as you can see I have no wear tests going on at the moment.

  4. Wow, that is impressive! Do you have a rough idea of how many training hours did it take?
