2011 Running Recap

I have repeatedly said here that I am a low-mileage Ultrarunner.  For example, here are my summary stats from last year:

  • 1186 miles (average 99 miles/month)
  • 173 runs
  • 6.9 average miles per run
  • Longest runs: a pair of 50K races (May & Oct)

My training has been like this for years and has enabled me to decently complete 50K, 50M, and 100M races.  So you don't have to sell your soul to the sport to be successful, provided:

  • You have a long base (in my case, running since 1979), and
  • Long runs in prep for specific events (i.e., three or four 35 milers to get ready for a 100M).

Good luck in 2012!
