Day 642 -- Jogger's Progress

Time24 days, 5 hrs, 23 min
5 days, 15 hrs, 48 mins

Tomorrow being a scheduled cross-training day, it's time to take a look at Jogger's Progress.

It's been a pretty typical month. My average mileage since I started keeping careful track has been 124.6 miles per month, and this month I ran 133.7. The average number of days per month has been 21.4, and this month I ran 21. (This is the third month in a row that I ran 21 days, for what that's worth.)

I feel good about it overall, although frankly, I wish that I had had a better run today. It's a step-back week, so I only ran 8.4 miles for my long run, but it didn't feel very "only". It felt like a lot of work. It felt like I don't know how I'm ever going to run three times that far. I guess I just have to trust that the overall training program is making me stronger.
