I set my goal to run 1,000 miles in 2008. so far I am averaging 91 miles a month. I have run a total of 918 miles this year. In September I ran 137 miles. In October I ran 122 miles. My longest run so far is the 30 mile trail race that I did on October 18 in Palo Duro Canyon.
I am getting comfortable running trails at night with my green flashlight. I can comfortably run 10 miles in about 2 hours. A 10k (6.2 miles) run is just a warm up run for me now.
What I am dealing with now is how to get fuel into my body at mile 25. I have been experimenting with eating PPJs, protien fruit smoothies and gels, but they do not last. I am going to try a product called Spiz next. I have placed an order with a local doctor and I will get it next week.
