I did okay, I technically made the miles I needed this week, but I could have done better!

I am frustrated because physically I am really feeling good about running! I have found a pace that feels good, so I can run distances without feeling winded or sore. But unfortunately, I just don't have time to do it every day. It's the consequence os living in the suburbs and working in the city--it adds 3-4 hours a day of commuting time so I am only finding myself able to fit it in a few times a week.

Maybe I should just buy a brand-new treadmill? Decisions...

Check out facebook marketplace. I got a "brand new" used a couple times treadmill for $300. It retailed for $1200 so it's a pretty nice one. I don't feel badly that I don't use it occasionally.

I sort of feel like I'm cheating by doing my miles on a bike instead of running. I did 15 miles yesterday and could have easily done another 10 if my butt hadn't started going numb!

I might be wrong, but from what Jim said at the beginning of challenge...

"For anybody curious, the conversions that I have usually heard are: 1 mile run = 1600 meter row = 4 mile bike = 400 Meter swim (16 lengths of most gym pools)"

So your 15 mile bike ride is about 3.75 miles run.

I actually put my distance for example at 5, 7 or whatever and Nike run tells me when I'm half way and I turn around. I couldn't run on treadmill.

I had a bit of a fail today. I set out to run on the Prairie Path, hoping to run 5+ miles. I ended up taking a wrong turn and getting onto a side branch with unmarked mileage. Live and learn. I'm keeping up, but 50 is a challenge in 2 or 3 mile increments.

Have a great week, all.
