OK because of this stupid challenge I did the following
- Conference call at 9 am
- Option to drive to work and get ready for it and not work out
- Got on treadmill at home at 8:30 am
- Did a hard run (for me) 22 minutes, ending at 8:52
- Outside it was minus 6 C so went out to my car in my T shirt and turned car on and ran another 3 min cooldown run with a Tshirt on in minus 6C
- I was instantly bone dry and now at 25 min for the day
- Entered the car at 8:59 am
- Dialed into call and drove to work
- Finished call in my office
25 min running done, will do the last 5 minutes when I go to pool at lunch time probably jogging around the parking lot as a warmup for my swim.
So a perfect 100/100 day. My 22 minute run was actually pretty high quality with 10x1 min intensity surges (for me).
I still have to do my final 5 minutes, but without 100/100 this would not happen and that's exactly the type of behaviour that we want the 100/100 to impart on the time limited athlete! So in the last 48 hours I'll end up with 1:15 of running that otherwise would have not happened. Hopefully all this stupidity helps me in 10 weeks at the Dubai 70.3 I'm actually going to layer on some of this approach to just hopping on the spin bike at home just to accrue some base buildinig bike miles vs sitting on the couch.
This is exactly the type of behaviour we have come to expect from you Dev - love it! So pleased to hear you are able to do triathlons again.Your journey has really inspired me :-)
I entered the 100/100 challenge today and completed my first run. I've been injured since May with a bulging disc pressing on my sciatic nerve. Thought I would give this challenge a try and see how far I get, I'm hoping to atleast attempt 50 runs. Today I managed 5km without pain, which made me feel really positive!
