Day 27-28 - Jason - Swim Cooldown
My mane is Jason ward. I am doing this marcothon thing because I like challenges. I completed this challenge last year but a few of my runs were on a treadmill. My foal in 2014 was to run exclusively outdoors no matter the conditions and to run 5k. Thus far I have been fortunate as the weather here in the midwest has been quite mild, only seeing a couple runs in sub 30F temps.
I have stayed true to my goals and have executed a 5k each day of December outdoors including Christmas day. If I do this challenge in 2015 I will have to up it a notch. Possibly increase the daily mileage to 4 miles or add a biking requirement of 10 miles per day. Well, I have 11 months to figure it out.
My run tonight was a 1-way trip to the gym where I met my wife with my gym bag for a bit of a swim. The run was cold but the water was a balmy 83F. Might have to make this run more often although it is slightly less than 5k I resorted to a short detour. In addition I lost about .25 miles due to the fact my Garmin was paused unknowingly.
Here is tonight's run:
