June 10K Everyday

My latest - and last planned challenge of this year - is done! I've been running at least the mileage of the month number every day of the month, so:

  • at least 1 mile every day in January,
  • at least 2 miles every day in February,
  • at least 3 miles every day in March,
  • at least 4 miles every day in April,
  • at least 5 miles every day in May,

and at least 6 miles every in June was so close to a 10K per day, that was the June challenge!

Today I finished ...

Metric Mile Math

It's too bad the conversion between miles and kilometers is just over 1.6 (closer to 1.609 kilometers / mile). At just under 1.6, closer to 1.592 (just 17 less meters) we'd have:

   5 km / 1.592 miles/km ~ 3.14 miles

Or as we in the maths field like to say, π (pi) miles.

And then of course, my 10 km a day would be:

   2 * 5 km = 10 km / 1.592 miles/km ~ 6.28 miles

or 2π miles, to take this full circle.

10K .. every day .. for 30 days .. half way ..

I just passed the half way of running 6.21371 miles (10K) for every day in June - the sixth month of the year; hence, 6(+) miles every day. I'm getting tired and it's a bit unexpected.

Rhode Run Ultra

Is it possible to go out tomorrow, and with my base fitness run 50 km with no specific training for that distance?

No ...

... because I just did it today!

Guarding Against Extremes

I'm reading "The Wizard and the Prophet" and see them as the extreme viewpoints of an answer; one campaigning for one side of the solution, the other one advocating the opposite; bouncing us back and forth between extremes, getting no closer to a workable answer.

February Calendar Club-lite

I completed my February running goal of the "Calendar Club Challenge" for the first half of the month. For those that don't know, the "Calendar Club Challenge" is running a mile for the date of the month. So for example, February 1st is 1 mile, February 10th is 10 miles and February 14th - Valentines Day - half-way through the month, is 14 miles.
For reasons that will become clear later, I actually ran 2 miles on February 1st and I thought the extra 0.1 miles on the 12th, 13th and 14th made a nice trifecta of half marathons to start that week. I'll continue to keep the rest of my daily February mileage above 2 miles as we move towards March and the Goggins Challenge.

No More Laps

Just completed the Nick Symmonds #OneMoreLap challenge!

Started mid-January after I realized I was already on pace with my normal daily road runs and finished today on the track with 31 laps!

On (Off) Track with One More Lap

After looking at my running for the first two weeks of January, I see I am on track - that is to say, mileage wise - with the Nick Symmonds #OneMoreLap challenge.

Of course, this is all on road for me, not actually the track, but I'll just keep adding 1 mile starting January 17th (to be 5 miles that day) and every fourth day thereafter to keep pace and complete the challenge.
