50 Day Streak

When?

Start: 26 December 2016
Finish: 13 February 2017

What?

I am trying something new with my running – a 50 day streak. One where I do keep my clothes on 🙂

So a streak is?

For me, running a minimum of 5 km, every day, for 50 consecutive days.

Why?

My first race, a half-marathon, is on 4 March in Palić, with a few more over subsequent months, and a focus on the Firelighter ultra (for charity) planned on 1 September (see below results for sponsorship link). So I thought I would try something new with my training as I still have time to change to fit in more with the races.

week8of50-5I ran the 5.3 km with my 12 year old son on Day 50*5, then continued to run each day and the last day of the week was the 50th day of 2017.

Stopped my streak on Day 60 (see picture below) – just fancied a rest; so took Friday and Saturday off.
Then ran 12 km in exactly one hour on Sunday (with 191 m of elevation).

I’ll do another streak, some time, some distance as it was good fun 🙂
