I missed you too

Oh Dailymile how nice of you to let me know my friends miss me.  If you want to be my friend on dailymile feel - click here.  A little disclaimer, I am pretty lame on the DM as I just track my workouts and then write about it here. :) Either way the choice is yours.

This week starts 7 weeks until my half. I am starting to freak out as I do not feel ready. Yes, I know I have 7 weeks to get there I am just hoping my ankle can hold up.  After taking a week of from Cardio last night I jumped on the treadmill for 2 miles.  I know not much in the grand scheme of thing, but it was more then last week so I am happy.  What's up next 5 miles and then Spin Class on Wednesday - I am more excited for Spin then I am the 5 miles.

How do you track your mileage?


  1. I'm a complete list freak :) I track my mileage in an Excel sheet, I use a Dutch site because you can add the shoes you used so you know how many miles you ran on them, then a few blogger friends mentioned Dailymile and I track there too plus I use the official Garmin site to download my running info.

    Take it one week at a time, no use in freaking out for something that is going to happen in 7 weeks. Evaluate every run how your ankle is feeling and don't feel bad if you have to make the decision to skip this half.

  2. I am very low tech :) I track on a paper calendar :) But hey...it works for me :) haha

  3. I track my workouts on Daily Mile too .. but don't write too much there as far as how I feel. Glad the ankle is feeling better. How was it after the 2 miles, you didn't say?

  4. @ Fran - love that you are a list freak. I am a little bit of a list freak also. While I track on daily mile, I have a my plan written out on a list andd on my whiteboard.

    @ Kerry - thanks for asking - I iced right after and wore my compression sleeve. This morning it is a little thight and only hurts if I touch the sore spot...so I think it is doing better.

  5. i have been using daily mile as well and it really helps me keep track! glad to hear you are feeling better and hope that your ankle allows you to get back to a routine this week!

  6. I have how many miles I'm supposed to run on a google calendar, and I write in my blog how many I actually ran. That's as close as I get to tracking them.

  7. I use daily mile too...I like the ease of tracking.

    I am kind of freaking for my half too...its on Oct. 29th...thank goodness hubby is doing it with me.

    My ankle hurt after my Sat. run of 10 miles...I didn't do any thing (but eat ;-) for two days and then I tried running again today...made it for 4.5...and so far so good with the ankle.

    Good luck with yours.

  8. I'm already your DM friend - and yeah, I missed you! Glad, though, you took time off to rest!

    I use runnign2win.com and also dailymile.com PLUS on the top of my blog I have a training page where I keep track - OCD, mmm yeah, maybe a little!!!

    I agree with Fran's advice - one week at a time, one run at a time, one mile at a time!

  9. You did two miles!! That is more than everyone who did NOTHING! Way to go! I am also on DM and it is where I track my workouts. I swore I would not go "online" to do so and would keep a pen/paper log, but I switched over earlier this year. I love the support of the online community!

    See you there! ;)
