So my daily running challenge is over. I will say that I am happy to be done with it, but at the same time without the accountability I have not been running these last few days. That being said though it is freeing to be done because while not running, I have been busy doing other things. It would have been added stress to worry about when am I going to squeeze my mile in.
I give kudos to those that are dedicated to streak days, months, and years. I’ll be honest, I think I may have stopped at day 29 and not even hit 30 but I’m ok with that. Last Friday would have been day 30 and it was a crazy hectic week as they all are and by Friday I felt like a tractor trailer hit me. I think that I was dozing on the couch by 7:30. My body needed the rest more than it needed the mile.
What did I learn from this little experiment?
- That once you go out for a mile, you might as well do more if time allows
- That my body is not designed to run every day.
- That it was a good way to jump start my running/training
- That I’m glad that I did it
- And most of all, I’m glad that it is over!!!
Will I do another streak? Not any time soon. I do have some plans that I am working on finalizing and will hopefully have everything in place by next week. This will keep me motivated, busy, and running that is for sure.
So for now, I am going to enjoy one challenge ending while gearing up for a new one.
