Run Miles for the year: 528.7
Projected total miles for the year: 1026.5
Run Streak: 40
Number of runs that were one stupid mile: 1

Notes: Scheduling, exhaustion, capitalism, a six month old, and a slightly ganky left foot all conspired to once again keep me from getting to forty miles.  Better luck next week I guess.

 

Have you noticed that the chart above keeps getting longer? No, you haven’t, because “you” do not exist. The only person who reads these posts is me, ergo, you have not noticed any change in these posts because there is no “you” who reads them.

 

Anyway, it amuses me to do these, and to keep adding silly things to track.

 

Let’s not focus on the negatives, though. Here’s what went right:

 

  • For the first time in, oh, for fucking ever, I got in (a little) Hebrew study. Tracking that here should incentivize me to do it more, and more consistently.

 

  • I’ve also started to reincorporate some minimal bodyweight work.  Its shocking how fast you can lose the pull up if you don’t train. I’m trying to get in 50 push ups and 10 pull ups a day.  Eventually, I’d like to have that up to 100 push ups, 25 pull ups, but we’re not there yet. I’ll start tracking the bodyweight stuff here as well. 

 

Goals for next week:

  • 40 miles
  • One work out
  • Six total hours of exercise
  • Seven blog posts for the week.
  • Two hours of Hebrew
