How Many Miles?
When I first started marathon training, Amy asked me "SO, how many miles will you run in training to run 26.2 miles?"
Good question. But one that's maybe a little dismal to think about! But curiosity finally got to me, and I did the math.
If I include what I've already run (since starting training on March 8), and then follow my schedule exactly between now and July 11, I will have run a total of 319 miles.
Thus far I've run 69 miles. That means I have about 250 miles yet to run in the next 11 weeks.
Oh my. (I knew I shouldn't have done those calculations!)
