Well. I have been slacking.
Not only have I not posted in, you know, forever, I have not been as motivated to exercise. Wonder if the two are connected? I mean, this blog is kinda my accountability. I am going to guess the answer to that is a resounding yes!
But, just in time for all that yummy holiday food, I am back!
I have a new treadmill, and Runner’s World is doing a holiday run streak from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Thirty seven days of running. The suggested streak is you commit to just a mile every day and then do whatever more you can as time/energy allows.
I did the spring streak and really enjoyed the sense of accomplishment at the end. I think this time I am streaking 2 miles a day. I feel that part of my problem of not running as much is that I allowed myself to get into the habit on running only a mile before work. Not that I couldn’t run more, either time or energy-wise, it was just easier to convince myself that was all I needed to do.
I think that a 2 mile commitment will get me back into the running mode. And back into a bit more shape! I admit that running is not quite as fun as it was since it is not quite as easy as it was. Just lets me know where I need to go!
So before I go to family to eat, drink an be merry this Thursday, I will be running at least 2 mile 🙂
