If you are lucky enough to have a husband who turns the AC on in your bedroom to cool it off and fills your water jug while you are out running, so both are ready to cool you off post-run, I suggest keeping him 😉
Simple gestures can have the most impact!
3 miles in the books for today – the sun isn’t out but I still sweat like crazy when I run, so these gestures are always extra appreciated!
Y’all know I love to challenge myself, and I do best when my goals are clearly laid out…
Summer 2018 Challenge is… 175 miles!
Worth noting that 2 years ago, I would have seen ‘175 miles’ and basically said “fuck that, no way”….
And 1 year ago I would have seen the number and given it some consideration (and overanalyzed it) and maybe done it, maybe opted not to.
Now? I am like shit, yeah! SIGN ME UP!
Do I think I will RUN 175 miles over the next 2 months? No, but the beauty is that you can walk, or bike (3 biked miles = 1 tracker mile for this) and I KNOW I can do that – it breaks down to 2.5 miles per day – I can totally do that!
So, since today is day 1 of the 2018 Summer Challenge, I ran. I didn’t run super fast, I didn’t run super far, but I ran; I got myself on the board.
I can do hard things. YOU can do hard things.
Still time to join me and some friends who are doing it!
Today wasn’t a 5k but, because I want to run at least once a week, I went out for a two mile jaunt.
I also shocked myself by apparently crushing incline?! Haha, running never ceases to make me shock myself!
It’s important to note that years past I would have insisted that my Map My Run app was broken and I didn’t REALLY run a 6.5 minute mile… but I’m tired of always taking away from my own achievements. I’m always encouraging others to own their badassery, time to walk that walk!
