200 days

Posted by speedygeoff on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 with 5 comments
Today marks day 200 of my running streak. Training is at Dickson tonight: I shall bring something to share and celebrate.
Q: How does one continue a running streak of 200 days plus?
A: One day at a time.
It has been so cold, I have wanted neither the fire nor the cat to go out. I have had to go out though: each new day I need at least 4k, outdoors. But it is good to come back to something warm after a run.
A 2012 goal was to run 4200k. After 28 weeks, I need to average 77k per week for the remainder of the year. This looks possible.

Note: I shall be getting in touch with people to see if they can join us Saturday mornings at Acton again. And to tell them that by October when the track season starts, our Parliament House training will return to Mondays.

Song of the week: "Home", by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
Lots of energy from this band! Very different  music from that usually in my playlists.

  1. That's a lot of days! Wish I'd been there to join you. That early jog with Kym and Miranda up around Majura was fun.

  2. Today's early sprint with Colin was fun too.

    1. Knowing how fast Colin warms up, doubt I'd have enjoyed a 13k hilly tempo run.

  3. Very inspirational speedy chief. Keep on keeping on ........ :-)

  4. Wow congratulations on 200 runs in your amazing streak! That is such a huge achievement. Are you the only remaining streaker?
