Time for a couple of milestones #REDBED Day 19

Yesterday’s post was a little bit downbeat. Hopefully today’s will counter that, with a couple of milestones reached in the various challenges I’m doing.

A couple of milestones

It might seem odd that Day 19 of #REDBED would be of note. But it is.

As I explained in my first #REDBED post, my run streak started a little earlier than planned. 31st October to be exact.

Today is my 50th day of consecutive running. Even Smashrun congratulated me on that!

In addition, I completed 200km of running in December so far.

My original goal was 200km for the 25 days of the Run Up 2 Christmas Challenge (for MIND) so to reach that 6 days early is a pleasant surprise. It also means I’ve got 6 days to try to see if I can get up to the top ‘award’ at 250km. But that’s just a bonus, my aim was 200km! I’ll let Strava celebrate that one!

Today’s runs

Tuesday is frequently my double-run day. I lead a session with my trail running group, Lyme Runners, on a Tuesday morning. Here’s what we got up to:

I also do my own training, with Stockport Harriers, and spend Tuesday evenings running around the track at a somewhat more frenetic pace. Today’s session was one of my favourites, which was a 5x1000m with 200m recovery between sets. If you dig into the data in Strava you should be able to make out the intervals from the recovery bits:
