Here's my too precise by half answer. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
My plan is to run 1500 miles in 2008. If you do all the math, that means I need to run 127.05 miles (don't want to forget those 264 feet!) in January.<br><br>
I found a <a href="http://www.runtheplanet.com/trainingracing/marathon/plans.asp" target="_blank">plan that ORRC put together for basebuilding</a>. I'd like to do slightly more in the way of long runs. I put myself right in the middle of the beginning plan (approx. 30 miles a week). I'd like to think I could handle the intermediate plan but as much as I made huge progress this year, I'm just not there yet. A man's got to know his limitations. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> Anyway, that comes about to 140.11 planned (with a half marathon in place of one of the long runs).

Hoping to build a good base of long slow miles in January. My target is somewhere between 160-200 miles, depending on the snowpack.

Yep, I need to lose that dress size too <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Five weeks to my first marathon of a busy year - and I need to lose 10 pounds and get up to 100 miles this month as I set preparations <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Happy New Year all

I just joined Weight Watchers last week so want to lost at least 8 lbs. in Jan. for the beginning of my 40 lb. weight loss.<br>
Work up to 20 miles per week. I was at 17 before the holidays but went backwards.<br><br>

I was hoping for around 150 miles in January, but now I'm thinking 180 is a reasonable target. I did run 213 in December, but I need to step back a little. Certainly better than last January, when I had hernia surgery and only managed 50 miles.
