Janathon day 31.
So to the last post, well for Janathon anyway.
Janathon completed; 31 days run, 31 blogs, 125.14 miles in 20.6 hours.
When I started Janathon, I expected to have a good go at running every day but wasn’t sure whether I would be able to. Once started, I got caught up with the wonderful community of Janathoners and my personal challenge to complete what I’d started. I’ve been very lucky not to get a cold or injury and most of all I have been surprised how much mileage I was able to do.
Thanks to Janathon: My runs now feel easier, I enjoy running in the dark and in the rain, I know my neighbourhood much better and have even ventured out running before dawn (just the once). I love taking my camera with me to enjoy my surroundings on scenic runs so long runs have become as enjoyable as a Sunday walk.
I will try to maintain my weekly mileage (with rest days) but I won’t be going for evening trips around the block on days when I’ve already been to BMF! I’ve also learned how to blog and intend to continue to blog occasionally and maintain the conversation with fellow janathon bloggers.
Most importantly I’ve a had a good time, found a great bunch of people, January has flown by, and I LOVE RUNNING!
I couldn’t decide how far to run this morning for my last day. My total mileage was 119.51. Should I follow Shazruns and finish on a nice round number or copy Fortnightflo and try to find a mileage with a good pattern? I settled on rounding up to a suitable point. My legs said no thankyou very much to the thought of 10.49 miles and as 0.49 was hardly worth putting on my running shoes for I finally trotted out, after a little bit of encouragement on twitter, to run 5.49 miles. Well just over. I can’t run while looking at my garmin too much without worrying about tripping over and as I was feeling like finishing in style I had a little sprint finish and overshot at bit. Honestly where was everyone with the finish line at 5.49 miles exactly?
5.63miles 51.13 minutes.
Thank you Cathy for all your hard work in making Janathon happen.
Tomorrow I will have a rest day and a much overdue haircut. I will be back at BMF and running on Wednesday and Thursday!
