Just a Little Behind

The last week has been kind of busy, mostly due to my travel schedule. I got back on track today, running 4 miles in about 40 minutes. I felt like I could have gone a little longer, maybe a lot longer, but I had to get back to work. Plus, I have a wicked sunburn and running with a sunburn sucks.

I haven't given up on 2011 in 2011. It was meant to be a long term running plan, and I knew I would have a few hiccups along the way. I managed to run 76.2 miles in January, which is 76.2 more miles than I ran in December. I won't be winning any marathons any time soon, but I'm at least seeing progress.

I have been spending some time in the water, though. Yesterday and on Friday I spent about two hours snorkeling in Tumon Bay, hence the blog with the fish photos.

So I ran 4 miles today, bringing my total miles logged for 2011 to 80.2. With 327 days left in the year, I have 1930.8 miles to go before I reach my goal of running 2011 miles in 2011. Right now I am 41.8 miles behind on overall goals -- so I'd better get running.

Just wanted to chime in and say thanks for the inspiration! I live on Guam and have found that I've let my healthy habits go since I moved here... Here's to a jog this week! (Hey, gotta start somewhere...)

Cheers!
