100+ miles in September #run1000miles

It’s been a good month on the running front: 100+ miles for September. Which means this month finally saw me get through the 700 mile mark. 

2017 mileage = 714

This week I’ve put in another 25+ mile week.

  • Monday = rest
  • Tuesday = 6.4 miles at the gym
  • Wednesday = 4 miles at the woods 
  • Thursday = 4 miles at the gym
  • Friday = 3.7 miles exploring locally
  • Saturday = 7 miles – Parkrun plus a few more
  • Sunday = rest 

I’ve also tried to avoid too much running at the woods in the Fivefingers – I wanted to give my feet a rest – last week with all the dodgy surfaces I’ve been running on, it was beginning to hurt my feet a bit. 

This month I’m planning to get a bit more running on grass done – might even do a bit around the school field before leaving at the end of the day. 

The #run1000miles challenge is still within reach. I’m going to try to up the mileage in October and see if I can finally catch-up on where I should be, maybe even get ahead of the game. 


With 91 days left in 2017, the average daily mileage required to hit 1000 miles for the year is 3.1  or 27.1 miles per week. 


1000 miles still just about in reach….

Another week done. 5 days running this week. Which, when you consider it has been a busy week, I’m pretty pleased with. 

  • Monday = rest
  • Tuesday = 5 miles on the trails at the woods
  • Wednesday = rest
  • Thursday = 4.5 miles on the treadmill at the gym
  • Friday = 5 miles on the trails at the woods
  • Saturday = 3.6 miles on the trails at the woods
  • Sunday = 5.4 miles on the trails at the woods

My legs have felt very heavy and achy today, which I’m putting down to all the running on the muddy trails at the woods. Also, my feet have felt a bit sore, which I’m putting down to running in the Fivefingers on the stoney ground at the woods. Therefore, I think a bit less trail running next week. 

I’m slowly chipping into the lost miles from when I was transitioning into the Fivefingers. 


  • 311 miles left to run.
  • 98 days until the end of the year.

Which means, on average:

  • 3.17 miles per day.
  • 22.19 miles per week. 

Definitely doable (I think).
