Announcing Project 90

I'm a very goal-oriented person, and I think the lack of a specific goal these past couple of months has done me no good, no good at all. So, I gave myself a goal: 90 miles in June. I realize that so many other runners log that many in just a week or two, but that's not me...yet.

So I've cut myself off from logging any miles in Daily Mile, and beginning June 1st (rather, actually, the 3rd, due to extenuating circumstances much beyond my control), I have a plan. This plan goes over the 90 mile goal, but only just barely, so that in case something happens (injury, puking in the heat, whatever), I can remain on track.

It's going to be a stretch for me, I'm sure. But I know that if you achieve more than 50% of your goals, you're making them too easy. I know I CAN do it, but will I? There's the rub!

I also love to calculate statistics, and that 50% thing is something that really intrigues me. If I achieve this goal the first month I set out to do it, maybe I'll try for 100 the next month (well, maybe not...I'm going on vacation in July), or maybe the month after that!

This will be my "hold myself accountable" space where I will either scold or applaud my efforts, abilities, achievements... It's going to be great.
