Running 125 miles in January – at least 1 mile a day

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(!).

Momo may need sunglasses with all the neon

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.

  1. this sounds like a great plan and very similar to my own, should I see you out and about running I’ll be sure to doff my buff to you :)

  2. Spurred by your plan I’ve logged 34k over four days and hoping to keep the #runstreak meter ticking over. No plans to target such a big chunky monthly figure like you. Run long and prosper. Here’s to 2013. G

    1. Hi Gavin – good to hear you’re off and running this year. Nicely done. As for chunky numbers at the end of the month – that really is secondary. Keeping that #runstreak is my main goal for January. 2 miles today, nice an easy, nothing mental.

Thoughts? Let me know in this here box.
