14 days and 100 miles

Day 1109 - January 14, 2012

This is a first. I don't think I've ever gotten to 100 miles in the first 14 days of the month. 104 miles for 2012 already!

I should have listened

Ever have that feeling that your body is telling you today is not the day for a long run? I should have listened. I had a feeling I wasn't properly hydrated for today's run and after about 9 miles, I knew it. There was no way to shorten the run either. I had my wife drop me off at the Target shopping center and I was running a direct route home and I forgot to bring my cell phone. So, no short cuts, no bailing out and getting a ride back. I was able to finish without cramping up, but the last couple of miles were really tough and way off pace. I hit the 17 mile mark and walked the last quarter home.

Probably was bit more than I should have attempted given that today's run puts me at 54 miles for the first week of the year. Too big a jump.

Day 1100

Funny. It seemed so impossible that I would get to 1000, now the 1100 mark is like - eh, no big deal.

Glad I've kept it going and been able to stay healthy.

Good start for 2012

Day 1096 - January 1, 2012

Felt strong today and had great weather for a January long run. 15 miles in just under 2 hours.
