Some numbers

It’s the 20th Feb.

I’ve officially run further than I ran in January already! And I’ve run over 100km this year!

In January, I ran 42.86km. There was an injury in there where I was off for 9 days, and I was just getting back into running. Still, there were 31 days in the month and I’m pretty happy to be able to beat that only 18 days into Feb.

So far in Feb, I’ve run 58.41km. YAY! There are still 8 days left this month!

In total this year, I’ve run 101.27km. I’m pretty proud. I’d love to break over 1000km this year. Maybe it’s not heaps for some people, but it’s a pretty big deal for me!

    That’s bloody awesome!! You should be stoked!

    I’ve made it my goal to run more than 418km this year (last year I clocked 417km). Seeing as currently I am up to 8…I have 410kms still to go. Oops. Must get on to that!

    Keep it up, you are going to NAIL it!

      Thanks! I’m trying to make this year about being consistent with running. I’m pretty good with exercise generally but I find running pretty tough so it’s easy for me to go “oh, I’ll skip the run today”.

      I’m so proud that this year, I’ve skipped 2 runs only – for being really, really tired. In the scheme of things, that’s not really a big deal and I still have to listen to my body.

      417km last year is amazing! You’ll totally nail it this year. I’m loving your Nike training session posts by the way – so jealous they don’t do them here because they look like so much fun!

    Okay… flipping rock. You inspire me so much. I really want to run and will probably go back to one of your original suggestions re: C25k hang on….not couch to 25k!! 5K Ness…..I might even try running from the zombies.

      I think the thing about running that people forget is it’s actually really freaking hard. I can now run a km at a time, and in a few weeks will happily be able to run 5k without a walk break, but the process of getting from walking to running takes quite a long time. It’s so easy to get disheartened, and seriously, if it wasn’t for my A-type spreadsheets, I probably would have given up by now. It’s pretty hard to get on a treadmill and run but not really see changes from day to day. Then at the end of a week, I can look back and go ‘actually, my pace improved! I ran an extra 200m! I walked faster during my walk breaks!’

      It’s slow, but I’m slowly getting there. And it’s easier to stay motivated knowing that in 6 weeks I have to haul my ass around 10km of forest!
