50 day running streak and HBBC week 3 summary

I was reading a story yesterday about a guy who decided to run everyday for 50 days to get his "running mojo" back. I thought that might be a cool idea for a New Years resolution, but then I thought what the heck? Why not start today?

So I did.

The only rules are:

1. At least 20 mins per day
2. 50 days in a row

Yesterday was day one, I have a head cold right now so I decided to do 20 mins of intervals- 1 min at 6.0 and 1 min at 7.0. I did my 20 mins and didn't feel super tired yet so I kept going. I ended up doing 3 miles in 27:30, and jogging for another .25 miles to cool down. It felt good to work up a sweat!

This morning I got up early to get a quick run in before Will and I headed off to the states. I got in 3 mi again, this time in exactly 27:00, my fastest time ever for 3mi! I did a .25 mi cool down again.

2 days down, 48 to go!

As for my HBBC week- It was pretty pathetic. I got my 7 servings of fruits and veggies in everyday, but my exercise was almost non existent! I have plan for next week though, and I'm pretty sure my running streak will help me to stay on top of it!!

HBBC Week 2 points
7+ servings of fruits & veggies
Seven days- 7 pts
30 day shred X1- 1pt

3.25 mi run -3.25pts

Total points for week 1- 24.5 (16.5 + 8 bonus pts)
Total points for challenge- 88.5

Hoping for a better week 4!


  1. Great job on committing to the 50 day running streak!

    HBBC is such a great way to get your 7 servings of fruit and veggies in. I really need to work on that!

    1. Before the HBBC I really thought I was easily getting my fruits and veggies in most days... not so much! haha I'm definitely paying more attention to it now though!

  2. Good luck on the running streak! I love that instead of waiting until the New Year you jumped right on it and started immediately!

    1. Thank you! I've always been one of those "I'll start tomorrow" people, and I figured it's time to change the habit!

  3. Definitely think a running streak will help and I love that you laid it out so specifically! not just i'll run every day, but here is for how long..awesome

    1. Thank you! So far, so good! And thank you for the extra motivation your challenge provides!

  4. Great Job this week!
