Week One: 23 Miles

Saturday was a tough run. That lightness in my step that I wrote about in my last post wasn't there. It was back today, though.

Today's run was short. I went for a 5 mile walk along the Potomac with some friends this afternoon and then took a nap when we got back. I ended up running the Golf Course loop at 8 PM in 29 degree weather. I rocked it, though. And then sat down to a nice chicken curry meal I put on the burner right before I ran out the door.

2011 in 2011 is now one week old and I've run for 8 straight days. I'm going to keep track of my per week total, adding up my miles from Monday to Sunday. For the first week of 2011 I managed to knock out 23 miles. That's only about 1/100 of my annual goal, but it's 23 miles more than I've run in most other weeks. Added to the 2.75 miles I ran last Saturday, I've now surpassed the 25 mile milestone.

Go me!

So I ran 2.75 miles today, bringing my total miles logged for 2011 to 25.75. With 356 days left in the year, I have 1985.25 miles to go before I reach my goal of running 2011 miles in 2011.
