100 Days, 100 Runs

Week 1

Hope you don't mind me starting this discussion, Jill...

I just had to say that on day 2/100, I was supposed to "Rest" (according to my half marathon training program) but I figured doing just one mile was pretty close to resting, so I'd do it. But, if I'm going to do a mile, I'm going to give it everything I've got.

As it turns out, I must not have much to give -- it took me 9:06 to complete the mile (my average 5k pace is about 10:15)... so not the greatest.

Now I know something to build on for the next 100 days!

Again, great challenge!

  • I say take it easy on your 1 mile days, Karen, especially if you are training for a half. You don't want to get burned out. Good luck to you!

  • First, I don't mind at all that you started the Week 1 thread.

    Second, I agree with Chris... if you are in training for a specific event then feel free to make your 1 mile runs easy-peasy. I'd hate for you to do anything that might mess with your upcoming half!

  • I had a little set back this week due to some health crap -- I missed 2 days. But I'm making up for them. I did two runs today already, and I'm planning another two tomorrow to make up for it... hope that counts!

    Good job Karen.

    I did my runs for the week, I did have to do a dual-day since I was traveling all day on Thursday. However, I'm concerned about Week 2. I'm having some pretty severe pain in my hip/glute/hamstring/something... I need to work that out, but my 10K yesterday hurt.

  • I had a great week with the challenge. I thought I might get worn out with running everyday, but that wasn't the case at all. In fact, it motivated me to work out a little more. It was a case of "well, I have to run a mile anyway so I might as well also do some weight training". Besides, I have never been good of warming up before weight training like I am supposed to do. The 1 mile days as I like to call them, took care of that for me.

    On to Week 2!

  • Made it through week one. Was recovering from a bug that's been going around, but, I think that's finally going away. Next week should be better and I'm hoping to increase mileage a little.
