• Another 100 Days of Good Karma: Day 199 (50 Mile Goal Met!!)


    Monday, January 26, 2015

    Run/ Walk/ Bike/ Elliptical (Today:  4.34 miles;  Running Total: 163.10!!! miles)

    Day 199 of *Another* 100 Days of Good Karma.

    This morning my mileage sat at 158.76 miles and I needed to get to 163 miles to meet my goal of 50 miles before surgery.

    I was SOOOO close. I just needed 4.24 miles.

    So I decided today was the day. I was going to reach 163 miles no matter how long it took.

    I started by walking 0.52 miles to gym, intending to do the rest on the elliptical machine.

    When I got to the gym both elliptical machines were already occupied.

    I silently cursed the two women chatting and gossiping on the elliptical machines before climbing on a treadmill. I gave them evil side-eye looks for 1.0 mile while I secretly wished they’d twist an ankle.

    I know, I know. Evil, right? But I had 50 miles to finish, dammit!

    When they finally (FINALLY!!) relinquished the elliptical machines I jumped on right away and did 2.3 miles.  I really only needed 2.2 miles but I did an extra 0.1 just in case I added wrong.  I needed that 50 miles.

    Sweaty and happy I finished up by walking 0.52 miles home.

    So, the math:

    0.52 + 1.0 + 2.3 + 0.52 = 4.34 miles.

    158.76 + 4.34 = 163.10 miles.

    Today’s silver lining:  BOOM! 50 miles in 18 days!

    What’s your silver lining today?  I love comments!
