February 3, 2016
Week 5, I finished the first month of the #2016in2016 Challenge. The Run the Edge challenge has a great online tracking system to capture your daily miles – so I don’t know why I was surprised to see I was 18 miles away from hitting 100 miles with only 3 days left in January. I mistakenly thought that maintaining a running streak meant the 100 miles would be completed on-time – but I knew I’d get there.
I pushed the last 3 days of the month & made it happen even though I was a mile over 100 mile – I – got – it – done. I felt amazing (and tired) as I walked into the house on the 31st knowing that I did it!
As I looked to February, I figured 6 miles/day will get me back on-track, it will definitely be a push but it’s doable.
Obviously, life can get in the way & there are things that are more important than running BUT pushing yourself to accomplish something you’d never done before gives you a sense of achievement you can’t buy & no one can take away from you.
My fitness motivation for February is to keep my big fitness goals in front of me & push to achieve them. I won’t ever be the fastest but I will finish!
Until next time, keep moving whether you walk or run, remember to RunUrOwnRace!
