Joggling Journal – Streak Day 46

On a quest to joggle at least one mile every day for 1000 days in a row.

Weather: 27 F, Sunny & cloudy

Distance: 6.82 mi – To the Lake and Back

Time: 3:15 pm

Run time: 53:45

Listening to: The Moth Podcast, Skeptoid, Point of Inquiry, This American Life

Weight:  191 lbs

Drops: 1

Condition: Felt average.  Stomach cramps, sore knees, and feet went numb.

Summary: This was my longest juggling run of the streak and longest since the Chicago Marathon.  It was good to get a longer run in.  I was also satisfied with my speed.  Sub-8 min miles, not bad.

While running, I marveled that I ever did 50 miles.  How was it possible?  On the way home, I raced a bus.  I caught up to the bus with about 2 miles to go.  We went back and forth with the bus passing me and then me passing the bus when it had to stop for passengers and red lights.  In the last half mile, it forged ahead, made it through a green light and beat me.  A little more traffic and I would’ve caught that bus.  Also had my first drop of the year.  Darn.

  1. Nice run. I did a long run, and it was sure tough too. 2 1/2 hour joggle. It really was tough b/c I was wearing my old shoes, and it hurt my knees I think. Overall, felt strong though.

  2. Yeah, I am pushing hard and trying to really get in some good long runs. I cut out speed workouts because I starting getting heal pain from inflexible calves and not enough stretching. Now, I stretch a lot more and follow runner’s world magazine leg exercises to help prevent injuries.
