Sticking To The Plan

Today is day 18 of the daily workout challenge that I started with my virtual running-buddy. I’m not going to tell you that everything is going great but at least I’m sticking to the plan. We’re almost at the end of the first month of running and it doesn’t feel like I’ve made significant progress. It doesn’t help that it’s been raining most days for the past couple of weeks. Some mornings when I go out, my effort feels pointless, like I’m not getting stronger or faster but I know I have to continue if anything is going to change. So I just keep going, every morning, averaging at least a mile – in the middle of the week, I try to do closer to 2 miles. I am hoping that by next week, my runs will be averaging 2 miles with my long run approaching 3 miles.

The goal today was to run / run-walk for 1.5 miles.

Updates

I ran for 1.74 miles this morning

My running buddy is taking the day off because he worked a long shift and was up for over 24 hours yesterday.

  1. Keep up the good work.

    Running in the rain takes lots of energy ( to get up, get dressed knowing you are going to be miserable and then having to run) .

    Super proud of you!

  2. Sounds fun – sadly, my running schedule has been terrible. I hope to get a new pair of running shoes soon and get back on the trail. By then, let’s hope my life slows down a bit and the weather improves (lots of rain here too)!

      I need new running shoes too. That can really perk up the running plans. All the best with your goals too.

  3. That’s a great idea to do the daily workouts with a virtual buddy! Keeping each other accountable is a win-win!
