Oh, Lord. Somehow, I noticed that I can run my hundredth day of the year on April 30, but only if I run every day for the rest of the month. [For comparison, the 100th days of the first three years of JogAmericaBlog have been June 6, 2006, May 16, 2007, and May 21, 2008.]
Now, this is a silly goal. I've been doing quite well, running five or six days a week, but when I try to stretch it to over a week straight, that's when I tend to burn out. And I'm supposed to start marathon training at the beginning of May, so this is a terrible time to try stretch my limits. And, ultimately, it's a silly goal. I mean, who cares if the 100th day of the year is April 30 or May 1 or May 3?
So, I'm going for it. I doubt I'll make it. I imagine that next Monday or Tuesday, I just won't feel up to running, and I'll take a day off, and the 100th day will come at the beginning of May. But I have to try.
It may help that I didn't run far this morning. There was a cold drizzle, so I ran 3.7 miles, just to say that I did it, and then came in and warmed up.
