Melissa - I wouldn't go looking to set a mileage target for a year. You'll end up doing runs against your better judgement and for the sake of hitting an external target which does not relate to how you feel about running and life in general at that time.

Just run the amount you can week to week which helps you progress towards your targets.

Yes, hilly, as BR says, take it easy if racing at the weekend. You could do treadie running, but I wouldn't do the twice a day running with a cold.

There's a bloke at our club who did quite hard running through a cold one year, and ended up in hospital with pneumonia and restricted training for the next 3months. I have to take it easier during colds as my asthma gives me one of those horrid, annoying (to everyone) coughs!

Melissa - try for regular and consistent running, if you can. I've improved my times and fitness this year due to consistent training, and am subsequently enjoying my running more!

Didn't get to try the bike out in the end due to the snow.

May as well do the mileages now.
Run : 350
Bike : 7325

Would have been more if all of December hadn't been wiped out.
