I haven't run this much in my life but lately I've been pushing at least 3, maybe 5 or 6 miles per run with a goal of increasing mileage each week for the next month or so.  I'm trying to train for a half marathon. There's one coming up in late November--which is about 4 weeks away.  But if I don't make that one, there's a few more early next year.  And a half marathon is my next goal. I know I can do century rides with ease now but I'd like to push myself to running some distance.  I didn't always like running because I get tired easily, usually within the first half-mile.  So to get up to anything over 3 miles is quite an accomplishment for me.  The most I've done is a 10K which is 6.4 miles and it has been a year since I've done that.  This year, I'm shooting for a half-marathon which seems like a huge jump from 6 miles.  We'll see...
As long as I stay injury free and as long as my gout is kept at bay, I will continue to push for that 10mile marker.  I'm a big believer in having a goal to keep me motivated in seeing my numbers (speed and distance) go up.  And an even nicer metric is seeing my body's numbers go down (blood sugar, uric acid, blood pressure, and weight).  I first witnessed this correlation when I started training for STP (Seattle to Portland's double century) and I've been hooked since then.
