For a while now, I’ve been playing with idea of going on a run streak. As it is the time of the year for New Year’s resolutions, I thought the time was right. So come January 1, I will attempt to run at least 1 mile a day, for 31 days. And who knows, I might keep going? After all, there are people out there who have gone for 50 days or 48 years(!).

At the same time, I have also joined the Strava Run Base Mile Blast. My goal is to hit the 125 mile mark and here’s how I’ll try to do it:

  • run home from work 2-3 times a week (5 miles)
  • do another 12-15 miles on each of the four weekends
  • complete at least 1 mile on the other days

That should be doable – providing of course I don’t get injured.

To complement all that running, I have finally signed up for my first session with British Military Fitness. I’ve heard nothing but good things from friends who do and swear by it and thought I should finally have a go at getting screamed at by ex-military personnel. We’ll see how I feel about that after the first free session on 5 January.

Best of all: as I’ll be spending a week in Philly in January, I’ll be able to run a few of those 125 miles with Georgie and Momo – clad in glorious neon, naturally.
