13/30 - Run Challenge

I fell off the wagon on Monday with the run challenge.  I had the WHOLE day off, and I did nothing.  It was amazing, no lie.  I had grand plans of taking some time out to go for a long run.  It didn't happen.  I stayed parked on the couch with my hubby and we watched hours of Netflix.  Hours and hours.  Ha!  Around 8 pm, I started feeling a little guilty.  By this time it was dark and I was kinda bummed that I had "wasted" the whole day.  However, I started to gear up - and it starts raining. I want to go out now!  I start thinking of the dog down the street that keeps freaking me out.  I worry that he's going to bite me.  Ugh.  His owners had another dog that bit me a year or so ago and they weren't so concerned/helpful.  So, wasn't but about 5 minutes and I was parked on the couch once again watching Netflix.

I "didn't have it in me" yesterday either.  I had home group (bible study) after work and once I was home, I was "done."  Ha. I totally could have gone for a run, but decided against it.

In saying all of this, as of tonight, I'm caught up!  I went to the gym with my friend, Laci, and ran a very boring 3 miles on the treadmill without music (gasp)!  My headphones weren't working!  Surprisingly, it went by quickly...... :)  Now I'm debating whether to finish the challenge as I had intended (1 mile per day for 30 days), or just get in 30 miles - no matter how it's broken down? 

Decisions, decisions. 


  1. I always find it more difficult to do things when I have nothing on. There appears to be plenty of time... And then there's not. Tricky.

    Definitely finish your challenge.

  2. I say the 30, but in whatever increments you can get in. Some days it just isn't possible to workout and you have to do what works for you.

  3. I heart netflix.

    Good luck with finishing up :D

  4. 1 mile a day is a great goal, but hey, 30 miles is 30 miles so do whatever works!
