Ok, here is my day 17 through 23 recap:
Monday, Day 17: I was off work for MLK day, so ran in the morning and then hit up yoga in the evening.
Tuesday, Day 18: Nada, No miles, Not a One. Instead of working out over lunch at work like I do a lot, I went to lunch at my friend's to visit with her and her sweet little 3 month old. And after work, it was cold, I was tired and just lost my motivation. Oops.
Wednesday, Day 19: Ok, feeling more energized today to get miles in, even DESPITE a giant white out snow storm that came through today. On my way home, I stopped at the gym that is only 2 miles from my house. Got my miles in, and then it took me 30 minutes to drive those 2 miles home, but I ran.
Thursday, Day 20: Still recovering from the snow storm, I worked from home today. By the afternoon, the roads were a lot better. I had a doctor appointment, so on my way home from that, I hit up the gym again for a few miles.
Friday, Day 21: Back at work, freezing cold, crazy busy. Ok, what I'm trying to say is, I let every little excuse stop me from working out today. So I got no miles in. But did see The King's Speech with my hubs - and that was a really good movie. I understand all the nominees and awards. :)
Saturday, Day 22: Knowing I skipped Tuesday and Friday, I knew I was going to have to make it up this weekend. So I hit the gym mid-morning to get in at least 5 miles - succeed. Then I hit up brunch/lunch with a group of girl friends. Yum.
Sunday, Day 23: Again, mid-morning, I drug myself to the gym to see how far I could get. I knew I wanted to do over 4 miles, but hoping to have enough patience to do 5. Well, just a little over 4 miles, I hoped off and rushed around to the grocery store and then to meet a friend to see Country Strong. A good movie, I enjoyed it, and I understand why it's not nominated. :)
So adding up the 5 days I did run - I got in 21.09 miles. Add to the 51.21 I have done in the first weeks - I'm at a total of 72.30 miles down and 27.70 to go...in 8 days (Average of 3.46 a day). I can do this.
How are you all doing?? EIGHT MORE DAYS!
