Keeping Up

I've been slacking. The last two months have been packed with college leaving me little room to run. Fortunately, I have found a way to keep myself motivated. I'm going streaking!

For those that don't know, a running streak is simply running every day for a specific amount of time/distance or more. Right now my goal is to run at least three miles every day.

On the days where the weather is really bad(lightning storms) I will run in place for 40 minutes. This is almost double the time of my fastest 5K. The reason being it is not as hard of a workout, but it is boring. It gives me incentive to just run outside. During these runs I will probably watch Rugrats.

So far, I have run two days in a row(yes, such a big deal). Yesterday's run was ~10.5 miles and todays was a 5K.

The 10 miler went great. My RunKeeper messed up, but I think I got the path correct. I know the time is right. It looks about right...

Today's route was completely new. I started at the same ol' spot, but went through some REALLY hilly neighborhoods. Once I reached the top of the hill at 1.2ish miles I felt like a king.

One section of this was through town. I was running on the sidewalk and a car was pulled over it waiting to pull out into the road. The driver was nice enough to back up and let me pass. I guess he felt I didn't really want to run on gravel. It would have been fine, but I appreciate the thought! He probably recognized me from The Nugget. It was a great run. A little hard on the hills, but I feel great right now.

Well back to studying Discrete Math. AdiĆ³s!
