I have decided to embark upon a project where, for at least one month, I run at least one mile every day.
The project could ultimately end up running (Ha! Pun not even intended!) for much longer, depending on how much of a pain in the butt it turns out to be.
And so, though they’ll be boring (since I often wear the same/similar running clothes and hat) I think I will take a picture each day. I have grand ambitions of making one of those YouTube videos set to motivational music where it’s just a collage of me takin selfies every day for a year…
In any case: today’s run was originally going to be a single mile — and ended up being 5K. I went the opposite direction that I usually go, intending to explore that half of the neighborhood. Almost immediately, I remembered why I never go that way: HOLY HILLS BATMAN. Ugh. Anyway, once I was out there, I just decided to stay out there. So 5K it was — my legs were tired from yesterday, but I still stayed steady. All miles under 11:30, 3.27 miles in 36:18:02.
As promised, here are pictures of me rocking my new running shirt (THANKS MOM!!!) and of my Garmin showing the day’s work.
