I didn’t get to run as much as I would have liked this week, but I’m already at about 179 km so far this month which feels good! It’s funny, a lot of people struggle to get outside this time of year but January last year was my highest mileage month ever with a total of 371 km. I must feel refreshed and refuelled after Christmas holidays.
I started off the year with a bang by doing the Club Fat Ass “New Years Day 50K and Freeze Your Fat Ass Off Swim.” But technically that didn’t happen this week. It was a slow, fun run having to navigate slippery conditions and stopping at a couple Starbucks along the way. I recovered quickly and had a fantastic week following it filled with lunch runs and trail time.
I’m on track to finish the year with a total of 3,000 km if I stick to running on average just over 10 km per day. I felt stronger this week than last and my road runs have been on the faster side for me. It seems that I’ve also found myself in an unplanned run streak of 14 days so far. I wonder how long it will last?
My goal is to hit 3,000 total km for the year by December 31. To do this, I have to average about 10 km per day. Last week I only did about 50 km so I had to make up for it this week in order to stay on track. I ran every day at lunch plus did a couple 20+ km trail runs on the weekend. My legs felt suprisingly good considering this was quite a high mileage week for me.
