Run Streak: Mission Accomplished

Day 31... DONE!

Run Streak... DONE!

How I feel right now

I signed up for Run Streak to challenge myself. I wanted to see if it was possible for me to push myself out the door every day. I wanted to see if I'd get tired or sore without rest. I wanted to see if I could do it. And I have! I've spent over 20 hours out on the road this month covering 240km over the past 31 days.

My Nike Dashboard for December

I ran on Christmas Day.
I ran on the day of my Godson's Christening.
I ran the day Met Eireann issued a Red Weather Warning.
I ran the morning after my work Christmas Party.
I got up and ran one morning at 6am.
I went out running at 11pm one night.
I ran through hail stones.
I ran through puddles.
I ran for at least 30 minutes every day this month.


Right now I feel like Beyonce. No, not a strong independent sassy bootylicious billionaire lady. I feel like I have had a glimpse into Beyonce's time management scheduler or something. Now while I didn't get the chance to drop a surprise visual album on y'all this month, over the past month:

How many things have I missed out on due to running: None
What has running prevented me from doing: Nothing
How many plans had I to cancel/change because of running: None


So there you have it. 31 days of running. Challenge complete! With a new 10K personal best under my best along the way too. I feel this challenge has shown how far I have come. Considering this time last year I had never run before in my life to finishing the year with a 31 day run streak feels pretty good to me!

Day 31 of Run Streak - DONE!
