1,000 Miles Progress

One of my new year resolutions this year was to do 1,000 miles in 2013.

Running a thousand miles in a year requires 2.74 miles/day or 19.19 miles/week. That is beyond my ability. But I do some cycling on the weekends. So I decided to count my cycling miles at one-third.

Let’s see how I have done since January 1.

Running: 4.26 + 4.05 + 5.1 + 4.19 + 4.04 + 3.22 + 4.11 + 4.2 + 6.04 + 4.31 + 4.25 + 6.16 + 4.2 + 4.29 + 6.33 + 4.07 = 72.82 miles

Cycling: 29.5 + 31.5 + 40.3 + 28.9 = 130.2 miles

Adding them up, we get 72.82 + 130.2/3 = 116.22 miles.

Today is February 6, the 37th day of the year. So 10% of the year is gone. To keep my pace for the 1,000 miles, I needed to do 100 miles till noon today. Thus I am on track.
