The #RWRunStreak is now 1/3 of the way over. That might not sound like a lot — for example, I wouldn’t be happy with a 33 percent on a test. But although my legs do seem to be feeling a little sluggish, the first 12 days have gone by quickly.
I haven’t had any days where it was tough to get a run in, probably because I get out of work at 5 p.m. and it’s light out so long that I have plenty of time to run. Another thing that helps is I live very close to work, so if I need to squeeze in a mile in the morning, I don’t have to get up that much earlier to do so.
For today’s run, I ran four miles, incorporating some of the Salisbury City Park’s mountain bike trails. I prepared the only-one-ingredient-needed banana ice cream that I’d just read about in Women’s Running magazine beforehand, and ate it afterward.
It just involved food-processing frozen bananas and then re-freezing them again (I didn’t quite wait long enough for it to totally re-freeze), but it was delicious. I knew I wanted something sweet, so I added a few pinches of sugar along with a little bit of milk when I was using the food processor, but it’s definitely a snack I will have to make again.
Here are some takeaways from the first 12 days:
Miles Run: 39.77
Average Per Day: 3.31
Longest Run: 10 Miles
Shortest Run: A little over a mile — I just go a little longer to confirm I got that mile in
Races: One, Baltimore 10 Miler
I’ll check in again once I’m a little further into the streak. Even though I’m actually at 16 days because I spontaneously decided to do this and I’d already run the four previous days, It’s been fun so far!
