Seen as we are a third of the way through a month, I figure now is an appropriate time to talk about my Run Streak. The Run Streak Challenge as set up by Amphibian King sounded quite straight forward:
"to run a minimum of 30 mins (or more) per day from 1st December until the 31st December."
And here is how I've been getting on:
It's been tough, but I can't tell if that's due to the nature of the month thats in it (December) or just trying to find the time. There always seems to be something on, be it a Christmas Party or a dinner, a night out or friends calling over. I keep having to remind myself of that quote I've posted here before "If its important to you you'll find a way, otherwise you'll find an excuse".
Last Thursday for example, I had to set my alarm for 6am to go for a run before Bootcamp at 7am as I knew I wouldn't get a chance after work that evening. Another day I went out for my run after 11pm when I got back from a play in the Town Hall. It's been all go but I'm loving it.
The further into the challenge I'm getting, the more excited I am getting about reaching the end. It will definitely keep me motivated over Christmas. I finish up work on the 20th and see already how easy it could be to let everything slip for the week, so that's why I'm looking forward to running with actual day-light (I so can't wait for the Summer again).
Today is Day 12 - I haven't been for my run yet today but I'm already looking forward to it :) I've already seen the benefits on the scales and I'm rekindling my love of running. I've run more this month than I did across all of November. I have to keep reminding myself that the more I run, the more of these I can enjoy :)
