The streak is alive

I’m not sure when I ran four days in a row last, but the April streak has started off well, despite the challenge of traveling over Easter weekend and keeping very busy. My mileage hasn’t been what I had hoped, but that’s not the point right now. I wanted to start off slow and not burn myself out.

Day 1 was supposed to happen around 6 a.m. Thursday, but I slept to my normal time and ended up running 2.2 miles that evening. Since I traveled on Friday, I got up the next morning and ran 3.5 miles — perhaps the first time I’ve ever ran twice within 12 hours. At least I don’t recall if I’ve ever done that. Also on Friday, I spent much of the afternoon at the North Carolina Zoo, which is enough exercise for two days in itself. I capped off the day by playing cornhole for about 2 hours.

Saturday morning I got up and ran 2.1 miles in my brother-in-law’s hilly neighborhood. I wanted to do more, but I was flat-out tired from the day before. Then last night I had a decent run of 3.8 miles. Four for four.

Just a reminder that this week I am participating in Relay for Life. Click here for the details. The more you donate, the more I’ll run.

    You’re off to a great start. Do you have an overall mileage goal for the month or you just working to keep the streak up?

    Steve, my goal is to stay on pace for 1,000. While I’m ahead of pace, my main goal is to hit the mileage to get there — 83.3 miles, which for this month is just under 2.8 miles a day. Since I have some goals that I haven’t written about on here yet, that should easily happen. In fact, it’s possible that I’ll get 100 miles this month if I train properly for those unwritten goals. 😉

    Keep it going! You are doing a great job. And, yes walking around the NC Zoo is enough for 2 days!!
