I can’t believe we are heading into our fourth week of run streaking! It feels like we just started, but we only have 13 days left! How have I done over the last week?
Thursday 12/12: 2 miles outside (yay for an outside run!)
Friday 12/13: 1 mile on the treadmill
Saturday 12/14: 1 mile on the treadmill
Sunday 12/15: 7 miles outside at Forbidden Drive (in the snow!)
Monday 12/16: 1 mile on the treadmill
Tuesday 12/17: 2 miles on the treadmill
Wednesday 12/18: 3 miles on the treadmill
Total miles for the week: 17
Total miles for the streak: 49.1
This is my largest week of milage EVER and I’m so happy! I definitely met my goals of adding at least one mile this week and running outside at least once this week. I’m so proud of my 7 miler in the snow on Sunday (a distance PR for me!) and I’m hoping I can repeat it this weekend!
The bad news is that ever since I finished that 7 miler, I have been soooooo tired and sluggish. Maybe it’s all the cookies I ate at my company fundraiser on Monday. Or the fact that I go to bed around midnight every night for no logical reason except that it’s the holidays and I’m trying to fit baking, run streaking, blogging, and holiday events into my already busy days. Whatever it is, I’m feeling very tired and my last 3 days of running have been pretty slow. I’m hoping with all my days off next week I’ll be able to bounce back and gain more energy! There were a few days this week that I wanted to give up, but luckily this run streak is keeping me accountable and I don’t think I can give up now. But to be honest, I’m not sure if I’ll keep streaking once January 1st rolls around. I’m glad I’m doing this right now (otherwise I would have skipped, oh, the last 10 days of running) but I’m ready for a rest day.
My goals for week number 4 are going to be pretty tame because I’ve got a lot going on! My sister is coming home from Milwaukee on Friday, my husband’s birthday is on Monday, and we all know that Christmas Eve and Christmas are going to be tough days to fit in a run. So here are my goals: continue the streak no matter what I have planned, run at least 14 miles, and try to run outside at least once. With the heat wave that’s coming to Philly this weekend, that shouldn’t be a problem!
How is your run streak going? What are your goals for next week?
