1,000 Miles

I set myself a goal of running 1,000 miles this year - thanks a lot Aliza. Last year my aforementioned enemy friend mentioned she had a goal of running 1,000 miles and then so I was all like "i can do that" and now I'm at the last two months of the year and I have a little under 300 (281 to be exact) miles to go so that means about 35 miles per week. However I'm not so sure I can do that. During peak marathon training I ran 36 miles in a week and that was with a 20 mile run. I can't be doing 20 mile runs every weekend. I mean I could, and I could end up in really great shape. But I also could end up injured. So I'm trying to figure out if there is a doable schedule for me to get those miles in.

Any ideas? If your answer is, get up every morning seven days a week and run five miles, thanks. I'll take it under advisement.

Two-a-days four days a week? Will give you mini-recoveries between runs and theoretically less chance for injury.
