I ended the Run Streak with 100.11 miles in 39 days. I was set to finish up with like 98.3 miles but I really wanted to reach 100, so I doubled up yesterday. I am so glad I found this challenge, and excited that I was able to complete it... I might do this again in the future, though 2012 is out due to my race schedule!
My run today was a 5k for the Resolution Run hosted by Amanda at Run to the Finish. Many thanks to Amanda for organizing this run, its exactly what I needed to start off the new year the right way. My resolution: To get back to healthy eating and finally reach my goal weight! I was VERY sore this morning when I woke up. I have been doing some yoga and pilates and the only thing I can think is either I am a wimp and that out of shape or I have been doing something wrong and have injured my mid back. Luckily it didn't hurt too badly while running.
It was overcast and dreary but I rolled my butt out of bed this morning to get the run in before the weather got too much worse. I felt like I was dragging though... the winds this morning were between 15 and 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. I am not sure if it was the winds or just my body needing a rest day, but I can't wait for a 5k to feel easy again!
I ran my typical loop around my neighborhood, there weren't many people moving around but I guess I am not terribly surprised since most people were probably still drinking off their new years celebrations! (Off topic, but I only had two drinks last night.. proud of myself for not overindulging!)
As per usual, here are my splits and a few photos (ignore that I look horrible, I was still half asleep):
