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:
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.
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?
