This was a good week for me. I ran 5 days for a total of 17.40 miles. I did not want to miss any runs because I signed up for The Run Across Illinois Challenge and I am still participating in Deborah’s Run Bet Challenge. I don’t really care about winning any money. I just don’t want to lose the money that I entered in the bet.
It was sunny on Monday but must have been cooler since I had a heavier jacket.
I run in the morning before logging in for school but this week I ran twice in the evening. It was warm on Wednesday and I have no idea what I was thinking. I overdressed and wore pants and a long sleeve top and then regretted it. On Thursday morning it was raining with thunderstorms and I knew I couldn’t get out to run. I waited till the evening when it had stopped raining. It was humid but still comfortable to wear shorts and a tank top.
Saturday morning I had to run 5 miles. I took it easy but still struggled to get it done. I went out later than usual and while it wasn’t too warm, it was sunny which I guess wore me out. I saw some pretty flowers along the way. Later I went to do laundry (I used to go on Sundays but now prefer Saturday). I must have been more tired than expected and so I took a nap and missed the Bloggers Zoom Call. 🙁
Another rainy day on Sunday. A big difference from Saturday. I did not want to go but then remembered the challenges I am doing and I was out the door. It wasn’t too bad. And yes I was warm again.
Of course I wanted to stay home like Mateo. I cannot imagine him being comfortable but I guess he is.
I did my 5k for the Uncancelled Project. This time I am determined to get it done each week.
Something I am excited about is The Great Run Across Illinois that Wendy mentioned in a post. I even got Marcia to sign up and we created a team – Bloggers Outrunning COVID. Our goal is to run 210 miles. I didn’t realize that we had to get it done by the end of the month. I honestly thought it was 70 days but that is for solo runners doing the challenge. Yikes! But we’ll get it done, right Marcia? 🙂
Are you doing the Uncanceled Project 2? What about any other challenges?
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
