It’s amazing that I can have run a half marathon literally less than a month ago and feel so out of shape. I ran a good race too. I need to get it back together. I need to get back to not being out of breath and sweating like I’ve just ran a half marathon after teaching a gymnastics class. Literally drenched in sweat today.
I remember when I was training for my 50K that I ran 6 days a week. My short run was 5 miles.
Now I’m not saying that I want to get out every day for 5 miles, but I do miss the feeling that I could if I wanted to that I could. I also know that I need to get back into better cardio shape which might help. My schedule has not been my own lately, but I’ve decided that I need to stop making excuses and get it together.
So I’m thowing down the gauntlet.
I’m going to start streaking.
Now those of you that know me personally know that I’ve really never been into the concept (for me) of streaking. I know people who have been streaking for years and I am in awe of them, but have never felt like joining in the crazy. I’ve done streaks of working out every day, but never running.
Although I do plan to limit my crazy. It will be for 30 days. Actually 28 because I started 2 days ago. A minimum of a mile a day for the next month. I think this might be just what I need to get back on track
This is really something that hopefully should be relatively easy to keep too. Monday, I start coaching elementary track 4 days a week. So it should be easy enough to get my mile in those days since I will already be in running attire and out of the house. There will be challenging days some that I already know of and some I’m sure will crop up unexpectedly but it’s only a month.
A lot can change in a month…..
