2017 will be the year of the runs 🏃💩 for me

What does that mean?

Run...
  1. To extend or persist, statically or dynamically, through space or time.
    1. (intransitive) To extend in time, to last, to continue (usually with a measure phrase).
      • The sale will run for ten days.  The contract runs through 2008.  The meeting ran late.  The book runs 655 pages.  The speech runs as follows: …‎

I am going to run at least 1 mile (though often more than that) every day for 2017. I am not going to have just a run of runs I am hoping to:

  1. Run at least a mile
  2. Cycle at least three miles
  3. Continue my Duolingo Welsh streak: https://www.duolingo.com/plodtv
  4. Continue my Free Code Camp streak: https://www.freecodecamp.com/plod
    Commit to github daily: https://www.github.com/plod

I will/have started some of these runs (streaks) before 2017 but the important pledge is that from the 1st of January = until the 31st of December I will have an unbroken run of these things.

This is going to be very difficult to juggle. I think the cycling part maybe the bit that falls hardest by the wayside. To combat this I have signed up for the Audax uk Mileater Award for the year http://www.aukweb.net/results/mileater/.

Mileater Diary

I am going to use this to record my mileage for both running and cycling.

We have also sorted out a strava club for those who are doing just the running part of this challenge: https://www.strava.com/clubs/yearoftheruns

I am also hoping to get my favourite instagram picture of the weeks activitys printed and inserted into the diary. This is a new challenge for me, and it will be a challenge to complete next year. Here’s to challenging ourselves 🍺.

And now I’ve tweeted it in the public domain I’m tied to doing it.
