It’s about time I gave you guys an update for one of my November goals. It was to clock up 50km of walking and jogging for the entire month.
The BIG Question: How many km’s have I covered so far in 19 days?
The AWESOME Answer: 53km!
I have already conquered my goal and I have another 11 days to go. *FIST PUMP*
I don’t think I have been more proud of myself in the weeks of late. Within the last 2 weeks, I have had 3 days where I have smashed out 5km (or more!) jogs, without stopping; something I only thought was for super fitness freaks. (Maybe I’m becoming one! Haha ;))
The Saturday just gone saw me run outside for the first time in a while. I smashed a 5.2km jog. Jogging on my tread mill is a lot easier because there is not a breath of wind or a rise in the dirt. It is just a constant flat surface with no interference. My run outside saw rises and falls, bridges and a constant head wind but I finished in 33.19.9 minutes. Something to look at improving as I move forward .
I made myself run. My brain told my body it wasn’t ready to give up. One light pole at a time. Just one more. It worked. I was so happy.
I am happy. Happier than I have been in a long while. Each run makes me smile a little bit m0re, knowng my body wants to run harder, faster and longer. I am getting there, one small leap at a time.
