At some point I’ll post up exactly what run training I’ve done. But hey, I’ve gone through a major milestone. 100 consecutive days of running and an average per day run time of 55 mins! That’s only 25 mins per day more than the target (which was 30 mins per day). After the marathon we’ll slip back into just (sorry) 30 mins per day. As somebody pointed out that leaves only 265 days of running to complete the goal. Now that’s a proper running streak. None of this running 1 mile per day American stuff that is supposed to count as a running streak. I’ve got to say it’s a lot harder than I imagined. There have been a few occasions now where I’ve been tired, it’s been late and I’ve simply not wanted to go out. The challenge of the streak and the pressure of publically declaring it keeps me going though. I did convince myself the other night at 10pm at night that I was ill and needed a break. Then I put my kit on, stepped out the door and felt fine once I’d been running for a few minutes. The mind is a strange tool that sometimes seems a little disconnected from the body.
I’ve detailed some stats below. It’s pretty much got every step logged in it. I’ve been using the Garmin 310XT religiously and it’s a fantastic piece of kit / tech. Feel naked when I’m not wearing it.
