Monday 01/28/19: 2.25 mile run
I warmed up for half a mile, then ran an ENTIRE MILE at 9:40 pace, then ratcheted it up to a 9:20 pace for a quarter mile, then cooled down for a half mile. I’m slowly but surely getting my speed back.
Tuesday 01/29/19: 1 mile run + hip strength and mobility
Vera was up at 4:30 am and I was a tired mama, so I did the bare minimum. 1 quick mile, followed by some clam shells, reverse clam shells, leg lifts, fire hydrants, and donkey kicks.
Wednesday 01/30/19: 1 mile run + hip strength + stretching
I was up late for rehearsal, so I just stuck to a nice easy pace for this run. I also did some of the same hip exercises from Tuesday, plus a 12 minute split stretch video. Gotta get my flexibility back!
Thursday 01/31/19: 1 mile run + hip strength + stretching
I squeezed in a quick mile for the final day of January, plus the same exercises and stretches as Wednesday.
Friday 02/01/19: 2.25 mile run + stretching
I’ll be honest, guys, the streak almost died today. I was tired and Vera was being super needy and cranky all day. But when she went down for her afternoon nap, I realized I needed some me time, and a run was just the ticket. I did some fast and slow intervals to keep it interesting.
Saturday 02/02/19: 1 mile run
Just a nice, easy mile for Saturday.
Sunday 02/03/19: Rest Day
As you probably saw in Instagram, I quit the streak today due to twinges of discomfort in my right knee.
Weekly Mileage: 8.5
Total 2019 Mileage: 48.75
After 33 days, the streak is done. I’m having a lot of feelings about it, but mostly positive ones. I’ll be talking about it more later this week, but for now I’ll say, I’m very glad I did it, and excited for what’s next!
