- I ran all seven days.
- I ran at least one 10-minute mile each day.
- I ran more than 15 miles for the week.
Here's how it happened:
And the challenge recap so far:
This was a tough week for me. Running every day isn't as easy as I thought it would be. Without a full off day to recover, I am finding that even some of the shorter runs feel slow and awkward. My Friday run was the worst. It was the first time that I wondered if I might have taken on too big a challenge. By the time I got home, my shins hurt so bad that I was limping and I thought, "damn it, what if I can't do this?"Fortunately, my Saturday run was better and I knocked out my mile with no problem. But the bad run made me realize how big this challenge is. I need to put some real thought into it and not just dash out the door each morning to run.
For week 4, I am planning this:
- Sun - 6 miles
- Mon - 1 mile
- Tue - 3 miles
- Wed - 1 mile
- Thu - 6 miles
- Fri - 1 mile
- Sat - 1 mile
That will give me nearly 20 miles for the week, and that is well above my challenge minimum. It will also ensure that I am getting down time between my longer runs. Hopefully, I will feel strong and remain injury-free all week.
And the Summer of Run continues!
