We’re about half-way through 2022.
How has the running year been for you so far? How are your stats looking?
Runners can get a little obsessed with numbers: How far, how fast, how often? Here’s a couple of numbers you might not have thought of:
- If you started running as a New Year’s resolution, congratulations! You’re closing in on 200 days of being a runner. That’s awesome!
- If you’re doing this year’s London Marathon, you’ve got fewer than 100 days to go – which is still plenty of time to hit the startline feeling fit and prepared.
Of course, there’s no reason why these big round numbers should be any more significant than any other. Yet there’s something about these arbitrary milestones, breaking up the slog of training, that can help with motivation.
With this in mind, we encourage you to look at your year so far.
Flick or scroll through your training logs, put your medals on, think about your favourite routes, and say to yourself…
Look how far I’ve come.
