Having a treadmill at home makes it a little more realistic. I like to do these streaks from time to time. They help me refocus, keep my mileage consistent, and teach me and my body to push through. I am both looking forward to it and dreading it, that is how you know it is a good idea. A little excitement mixed with fear. So far so good; I have been running everyday for the last 3 weeks. So If I don't overthink it I should be fine. I don't have many races coming up so this will be a good challenge for me. Sometimes you just have to do something to get out of your box.
I have been pretty consistent with strength training 3-4 times a week, not for hours, just a few minutes after my run but I can tell the difference. It is also good to be back at a more normal life and schedule. That should help. I do notice even if I am not into it at first, the day is usually better if I run. I am definitely nicer. So heres is to me being a joy to be around for the next couple of months.
What is your current challenge or goal? Today I am grateful for Mom. Mine and all of you out there who choose that tough job. Happy Mother's Day everyone!!
