100 not out

8 August 2011


This is my 100th post. To celebrate I went for a run (of course!), taking in an appropriate Islington street in a slow but steady 8 miles.

This post means that I have now been for more than 100 runs in 2011 (I’ve run more times than I’ve written about running). It’s odd to have a record of that number. I now know that I run every other day. 3.2 times a week. I’m not sure if I’m proud of this, embarrassed to have run so much, or annoyed that I haven’t run more.

Running is a relative concept. I’m not aiming for any ideal mileage. How pleased I am with it depends on how fit I am, how far I ran last week, what I had for lunch, whether I’ve got a hangover, how fast Mr Notajogger is at the moment…

However far I run though, however fast or slow, whatever I’m training for, I’m still running. 100 not out.

    Congrats! Thats an excellent milestone to reach! I also get what you mean – I can run the same distance, in the same time – but one day its a “good run” and another its not.. Odd.

    Congratulations! I’ve certainly enjoyed reading your posts. Such a wonderfully diverse collection of running experiences and locations. Looking forward to the next 100!

      Thank you! This means a lot to me – I have enjoyed writing it very much, but suffer periodic episodes of self-doubt so it’s good to know that someone is enjoying it other than my husband, who has to like it. xxx
