Weekly Commitment

Back in September I decided I'd commit to running at least 20 miles per week. I figured this would put me in decent shape for the Dallas Half Marathon and then possibly a go at the Cowtown Marathon.

Well,  since making that commitment my total mileage is a bit over 342 miles. Unfortunately that averages out to about 19 per week; obviously shy of my goal. Not too thrilled with that big goose egg in November either.

Regardless, having a plan, even as simple as a weekly mileage target, is beneficial. It's a plan I intend to adopt for all of 2012. I'm also rethinking my race strategy and running the Cowtown half.

We shall see.
