Guys…I did it! I ran every single day this month—woohoo! I think this might be the first time in 12MOL history that I fully completed a challenge without cheating (I hope that doesn’t change your opinion of me, but I usually cut myself a little slack here and there), and I have to say, I’m kind of proud of myself.
This morning’s final “Mile A Day May” treadmill session ended me at 32 miles for the month, which compared to last month’s zero miles, is a pretty big improvement, right?
For whatever reason, I used to operate under the assumption that it wasn’t worth going for a run if I didn’t do at least a few miles, but what happened more times than not was that this thought process prevented me from running at all (hence the zero miles I ran last month). What this challenge showed me though, is that running a mile might not seem like a lot at the time, but those miles add up, and a short run ends up being way better than no run at all.
That being said, I think I’m ready for a day off, so tomorrow you can find me taking a well-reserved rest day and lounging around in the sun at a Great Lake. Ahhh…
Thanks Mile A Day May, you were a good one.
