10,000 km of running .. oh my !

Went for a 15km run this evening. When I got home and uploaded it to Strava, I realized that I crossed the 10,000km mark, for 831 recorded runs in all. That kind of snuck up on me, to be honest. I was running outside for at least a year before I got my first Garmin GPS watch, but judging by the training volume I had at the time, I am maybe 1500km out in terms of captured volume.

3400km of that have occurred in the last 18 months as I have seriously increased my mileage due to the 6-days a week training of the Hansons Marathon Method as well as a general re-dedication to running after having a number of disappointing marathon results in 2012 and 2013.

Here is tonight’s solo 15km run:

I also have over 31,000km of riding since the fall of 2009 (though maybe less than 150km of riding that year; most of the riding started in the spring of 2010).
