Day: 20 of 100
Total Time: 30:35
Avg Pace: 10’06″/mi
We recently had a family emergency and I was also extremely sick during this time. I walked the miles a couple of days feeling like I was going to die. After I got better, I compensated by running four miles at a 10 min pace. Today, I decided to run a 5k on lunch since I’m officially 1/5th of the way through this challenge.
It’s still pretty tough to keep a 10 minute pace for more than two miles but I’m working on it. My cardio feels great but my knees and shins are getting raked over the coals. I’m wondering if I should start walking 2-3 miles once or twice a week.
Regardless, I’m at 44.23 miles so far, with only 80 days to go. I’ve really been enjoying the benefits of how it feels to knock this shit out every day even though I don’t want to do it.
Total Miles: 44.23 in 20 days.
