I did it. I ran 200 miles in March. Heading into the weekend with 34 miles left to do left ME wondering if I’d manage it, but I just kept plugging along.
Longest run: 13.3
Shortest run: 1.5 (timing my fastest mile)
Slowest mile: 12:** (slowest mile on Garmin 12:10, but I’m pretty sure I had slower on the treadmill)
Fastest mile: 8:09
Number of miles run on the treadmill: 42
Number of runs: 24
Number of runs with friends: 4 (not an acceptable number LOL, but the weather…)
Number of races: 2
Total time spent running: somewhere between 35 and 40 hours!
Likelihood that I will ever hit 200 miles in a month again: 0
This was a challenging month. Between the weather, a tweaked foot, and a busy schedule, finding time to run 200 miles was difficult. I’m not a fast runner, so 200 miles takes a lot of time. But I hit my training goals and I’m ready to go for Riverboat. Now I just need to spend the next week cleaning up everything that got dropped while I spent all my time running.
Since the training is in the bag, it’s time to turn my attention to more important things, like what am I going to wear on this adventure. Luckily, Kim has told me what to wear for the first three days. (Yes, I’m one of those people who needs serious fashion help LOL). We’ve decided to be matchy matchy, so my outfits for the first three days are based on what we had in common. For the other two days, I need to crowd source for fashion advice. Give me your opinions!!!
Day 1: Skirt Sports skirt in Oasis print with a blue Champion top and blue calf sleeves from CompresSport
Day 2: Black Skirt Sports skirt with a Swirlgear yellow top and PROcompression socks
Should I wear the yellow or the white socks?
Day 3: Navy Athleta Relay skirt with a pink Champion top and pink PROcompression socks
Day 4: Skirt Sports skirt in Paradise print with ????
Green shirt/green socks? Purple socks? Something else entirely?
Day 5: Skirt Sports skirt in Pink Crush with ????
Here’s where I really need your help!!!
Should I wear:
- Black top + black socks
- Black top + orange socks
- Orange top + black socks
- Orange top + orange socks
- Something else entirely??? (If so, what???)
I’ll admit, there’s a lot of satisfaction in rocking the training so well and reaching the point where I can focus on entirely First World Problems.
How was your March? Did the weather mess with your training?
