Today is day 1900 for me. Alas, I am not in shape enough to run 19 miles to celebrate it, but I am setting a goal for myself.
On day 2000 (which by my calculations should be on June 21st) I will be back in shape and will celebrate it with a 20 mile run.
I ran about 9.5 miles this morning and it was kind of tough. A year ago at this time I was knocking out 13 milers a couple times a week like they were nothing, and a 9 miler would have been a piece of cake. Hell, last year, I barely counted it as a real run if it was under an hour. Now, I feel woefully out of shape and want to get back to that feeling of being able to knock out long runs with ease.
2013 Goal: 2013 mi.
Why do you feel out of shape? Is it just because you have been running shorter mileage recently?
Congrats on 1900 days ! I am approaching 100 for the first time ever, so again, the commitment it takes even to make it to 100 makes the 1900 achievement really impressive! Over 5 years! What was I doing 5 years ago? Not running at all, ever, and being a lazy a$$. I expect that 5 years from now, it will be a different story.
The Plan (the big parts)→ /// April 20th: 24 Hour Race Hampton, VA (PR of 76.25 Miles) /// May 19th: Three Days at the Fair (12 Hour) in NJ (PR of 55 Miles) /// Sep 21st: NC-24 Hour Race in Ohio /// Nov 23rd: JFK-50 in MD /// Dec 31st: Peanut Island (12 Hour) in FL /// ∞
Congratulations Jeff! What an amazing streak you have!
