First Year of Running!

September 13, 2012 — Leave a comment

Yesterday was my first anniversary of running.

Day one vs. day 365:

  • 9/12/2011 workout: Couch to 5K – w1d1: 1.53 miles @ 14:52 pace [Brisk five-minute warmup walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes]
  • 9/12/2012 workout: Honolulu Marathon Training Plan – w6d3: 7.53 miles @ a 7:57 pace [pacing test run with a goal of 8:07/mile]

The six-mile difference was completely unplanned!

In 12 months, I’ve:

  • Run
    • 308 times
    • 1,392.36 miles
    • 213:55:27 (h:m:s)
  • Run 18 races:
    • 7 – 5Ks
    • 1 – 8K
    • 1 – 5mile
    • 1 – 10K
    • 2 – 12Ks
    • 1 – 10 mile
    • 1 – 11 mile
    • 4 – Half Marathons

It’s been a really, really fun year.  I’ve learned a lot and have really enjoyed challenging myself in something that I never really thought I’d find fun and fulfilling.

So, here’s to many, many more years of running enjoyment aaaannnnd…

GIDDY-UP!
