Stats as of 31 August 2010

August 2009
76.4 miles
16 hours, 37 minutes
Avg Pace: 13:16/mile
Annapolis Ten Mile Run 2009:  2:01:47 (12:11/mile)

August 2010
75.7 miles -- .7 miles less than in 2009
16 hours, 14 minutes -- 23 minutes shorter than in 2009
Avg Pace: 12:53/mile -- 23 seconds faster than in 2009
Annapolis Ten Mile Run 2010:  2:00:54 (12:05/mile)

Total running for the year, 477.3 miles, 12:50 per mile pace.

My total mileage isn't that much lower than my 2009 stats.  I was really thinking the difference would be bigger.  Last year, I was training for a full marathon.  This year, I am not.  So, for the rest of the year, I'm likely to be WAY under the total miles for each month than I was last year.  That's ok, though.

This month, I faced a lot of motivation challenges.  I was feeling down on running.  I think things are getting better, since the Annapolis Ten Miler made me feel pumped for the fall.  Cooler temperatures, beautiful changing leaves!  It will be awesome.

I'm only two weeks away from my target race - Rock and Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon!  Hooray!!  I am very excited for the race, but I'm left with one question - what am I going to do after that???  I have a relay on October 2, and then I plan to do a Five Mile Fun Run in December, but basically after Philly, I am race-less.  I need one.  I need to think of what I want to do.
