Timing Those Runs
Posted by Bucky Taotaotasi
So I timed myself for the first time today. I did the 3.5 mile Fat Boy Flit trail in about 36:00 flat. It is a short jog before the start and end of the trail, so I actually ran the 3.5 miles in a little under 35:00, which is a 10 minute mile pace.
Not to shabby for a fat guy.
Speaking of being a fat guy, I also picked up a bathroom scale. I'll weigh myself in the morning and report on how it goes. I actually started gearing up for 2011 in 2011 on the last day of November, right after I got back from the Philippines. I only ran a handful of times in December, but I haven't been drinking (regularly) since Thanksgiving. That's got to count for something, right?
So anyway, I was tipping the scales at about 220 lbs when I started this thing is all I'm trying to say and that I weigh less than that now.
So I ran 3.5 miles today, bringing my total miles logged for 2011 to 46.75. With 350 days left in the year, I have 1964.25 miles to go before I reach my goal of running 2011 miles in 2011.
