Running Streak Day 120

This week marked a new milestone – 120 days of my running streak!  Some of the new stats for the streak:

  • Total mileage: 713.55 miles
  • Average daily mileage: 5.897 miles

I definitely noticed some fatigue this week. Saturday, my legs felt like lead and my feet were starting to hurt. I keep saying I’m going to cut down the weekly mileage and take some days off — or just go 1 mile to keep the streak up — but then something happens and I don’t. I’m proud of making it this far, so we’ll see how long this goes for. 

This week brought 40+ miles again: 

Some highlights:

Sunday, LM (and B) slept until 9 (!!) so FW and I got in a stroller run for bagels before they even got up. 5ish miles, including a pickup of bagels, was a perfect way to kick off the week.

I got in 2 7-milers this week! This one was under 10 min/miles, an accomplishment for me lately.

I saw plenty of deer, including these just sitting down/hanging out.

And look at this! I think it was a cicada? Saw 2 of them this week. 2020 just keeps getting more fun!

Some questions for you:

  • Have you seen cicadas?
  • Do you find that if you take a day or two off from running, you come back stronger?

I’m linking up with Deborah and Kim for the Weekly Run Down.
