It’s been 20 days now since I started the Advent runstreak, and 22 days in a row overall.
As with the last streak, my legs are offering up some complaints about the lack of rest days heading into week four. Specifically, it’s some minor shin splints that have returned. I’m not concerned as I know why it’s happening and also that when I quit with the daily running, things will heal up fairly quickly.
As of today I’m at 1,769km for the year. That means I’m just 31km from my goal of 1,800km. With 16km planned for tomorrow, I’ll be able to hit that number on Christmas Eve with a few 5km runs on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
I’ll keep running in the week between Christmas and New Years, just not everyday.
Marathon training starts with the first long run of just 10km on January 18th. Resting, but staying active three or four times a week is the plan. I’m rolling into training for the 2015 Ottawa Marathon in really good shape. It’s going to be a great year.
