51. run 6 miles

At the end of February when I finished the Couch to 5k training that I began in January, I thought I’d use the momentum I had going to begin the Couch to 10k training.  My goals were to be complete all the training {3 scheduled workouts a week} and cross off one of my 101 in 1001 list, run 6 miles. Last week I completed both {and actually did the 6 miles 3 times}!

During the six week training, I walked/ran 86.89 miles, and also did an additional 27 miles of walking to hopefully meet my one of my April goals/101 in 1001 goals of walking 3 miles a day!  That’s 113.89 miles total!  This is the most consistently I’ve ever kept up with running {3 months, 8 days, and counting}.

For the final run of the training, Gary and I headed to the Augusta Canal Trail and did the trail 3 miles out and 3 miles back.

This was our first time running on this trail so it was a good way to end the training – especially since the course was flat and shaded in alot of areas.  The views, sunshine, and other runners also helped a little!

What was I thinking?!}

ps – let’s give a big round of applause for G who did 6 miles twice last week without training.  #WhatAStud
