This is the breakdown of the types of runs that I did:
It still looks pretty good.
In the past couple of years, the Saucony Kinvaras have been my favorite for long distance racing. They're lightweight and cushioned. This year, the Saucony Virattas came out. They're even lighter. They're my new favorite. I wore them during the BQ race. Another favorite is the Brooks PureGrit, which is a trail shoe, but it's very cushioned and lightweight. I haven't tried any of the other models in the Pure* series, but I look forward to trying more of them in the future. I initially purchased the PureGrit because it was mocha colored, and could pass for walking-around-town shoes when I went on business trips, but they're so nice for running, that I use them on the treadmill, too.
Total Mileage: 921.5.... Since I accomplished the 1,000 mi goal last year, I didn't' feel the need to repeat it this year. That's about 2.5 mi per day on average.
Total Time Spent Running: 5 days, 6 hours, 41 min, 51 s... about 20:45 per day on average.
Total Time Spent Cross-training: 2 days, 14 hours. This consists mostly of body weight strength training and recumbent biking in the gym. That's about 10 min per day on average. This means that in all, I spend about 31 min per day working out.
