Another Six Mile Run on Janathon Tuesday 18th January 2011

 I enjoyed today's run far more than yesterdays. I did the same distance 6 miles but whereas yesterday was a trial and I wanted to stop today I felt I could run even further. Why should that be? I have no idea,the weather today was cooler and bright and I did manage to get my run in a little early than yesterday so that would be a part of it.  Time seemed to fly by and I didn't look at my Garmin until 45 minutes and 5 miles had passed by.

I only meant to do 4 today so I am up on my weekly target of 32 miles  with just 20 miles to do over the next 5. I have a busy few days so having the miles in the bag should pay off as I do some shorter runs starting tomorrow.

 Thanks Maggie, Lena (fellow Librian) ,Ian, Martyn,Stan,Shaz,and Kenley for stopping by and commenting on my blog over the last couple of days. Its always good to hear from fellow runners. Regardless of whether I do manage to complete the Janathon event and succeed in running every day in January it is this contact and the  sharing of  thoughts and progress that makes it all worthwhile and feel like a community. Keep on running.

    ..and day 18 is done. Sounds like it was fun if you didn't look at your watch until 45 mins in. Enjoy tomorrow.

    no problem on visiting the blog! Its a good read!

    Ive introduced swimming into my training plan so you may want to included that if you cant run. But by the sounds of it you can keep on running!

    Great work!

  3. Yep... love dropping in and reading what you've been up to. Definitely a good run if you don't look at your watch until you're nearly done! I love those sort of runs! Keep up the good work... we're over half way! yay!

  4. we are well over half way now, and you're doing great. nice gentle increases, help prevent injury.
    Thanks for your tips on my weight quandry, I checked out that website and feel a little better. Thanks

  5. I just discovered your blog recently and was happy to add it to my list of fellow runners. Running every day for a month is a tough goal, at least for me, so I wish you the best.
