You can tell that I sell analytics as my day job. Runners are obsessed with numbers; tracking mileage (distance,) PR's, miles run this week, miles run this year. I used to log each training run in a spreadsheet with comments on how I felt and heart rate. I still track training miles in a spreadsheet, but the later items I log in Garmin Connect, Training Peaks and on DailyMile. No need to write down my heart rate in too many places. The spreadsheet (shown in the background of #distance) shows miles planned each week and actuals. DailyMile shows that March was an all-time high in distance trained at 217 miles with a few runs left in the month.
What #distance have I covered training for this year's Boston Marathon? 571 and counting. I had my first ever 70 mile week this month. Today? A mere five miles run on a recovery day. What #distance did you run today and what #distance have you covered over your Boston Training plan?
