20 days down, 10 to go

In 2013 I embarked on a run streak of 3km everyday for 30 days. I have since tried many a time to repeat this feat only to drop after about a week. The closest I’ve come is 20 days in a row….

This year Capra a local running store in Squamish offerred the Capra 30/30 which is 30 minutes of running everyday. It can be fast , slow, inside , outside, trail , road you name it. You just have to run.

I’m now on day 20 and I must say…i’m feeling quite confident this time that I can finish strong.

Day 1

I ran after work. I made a lovely snapchat monologue about it. It wasn’t great but it was a solid start to the challenge.

Day 2

This was the start of lunch runs. I am now finally in a fortunate position that I get a full hour for my lunch so I decided to start using it properly. I also work not too far from the seawall so this helped a lot as well.

Day 3

Hill Repeats. A love hate relationship. It’s perfect for this challenge since you essentially just aim to do as many repeats as you can in a short amount of time..but they are hard as heck especially by yourself.

Day 4

I went for a run around my neighbourhood. Nothing very exciting.

Day 5

Jeremy (Mr Tall) joined me a run along the dyke in Ladner. He even indulged me with some mid run selfies with a stunning sunset.

Day 6

Another lunch run

Day 7

I did hill repeats but had to modify them slightly, either way I got my run done!

Day 8

Treadmill Intervals. Pretty straightforward. I put something to watch on my phone which was nice too.

Day 9

More of the same. I’m trying hard with this challenge to mix up my runs as best I can.

Day 10

Ran outside in the beautiful cold sunshine. Vancouver really is quite beautiful some days.

Day 11

Intervals and a shakeout run. Didn’t wanna push it too hard as the next day is a race…!

Day 12

Fall Classic 5k. It was wet , cold but a fun day overall!

Day 13

My body definitely was a little sore and tired after sunday but still managed to get out there with Mr Tall by my side < 3

Day 14

I opted for the treadmill since I needed a break from the wind and rain…and I was glad I did just that.

Day 15

The Halfway mark! Intervals on the treadmill heck yeah!

Day 16

I titled this run a shuffle since that’s what it felt like as I was lapping around the track but it got done!

Day 17

More treadmill fun times. Thank goodness for entertaining videos whilst I run!

Day 18

A saturday in which I could run in the daylight. I ran to Deer Lake and back and was pretty content. I definitely felt a lot better post run mentally.

Day 19

Ran my minimum 30 minutes in torrential rain. My legs took awhile to warm up despite a scalding hot shower.

Day 20

Treadmill antics again. Aimed for sprint intervals but found myself running out of breathe.

With 10 days left I feel confident with planning that I will complete 30 days in a row..oh and i’m looking at another run streak challenge as I’m trying to hit a certain mileage mark by the end of 2017…which is right around the corner!

Hope you’re having a great monday !
