But guess what? We’ve survived six days! As adults!
And you know what? This is pretty awesome. Sure, running every single day over the Thanksgiving holiday was a bit out of character, but it was a holiday weekend so it wasn’t that hard to find time to squeeze in a few miles. Plus, I had my mom to do all of my running laundry for me. Added bonus.
Now that we’re back to the grindstone, I think the logistical challenge really sets in. However, now that I’ve got the first few runs under my belt, I know how easy it can be to sneak away for a quick lil’ mile.
Observations thus far:
- Short runs put less pressure on each individual run. So what if you only run for 15 minutes? You’ll get back out there tomorrow.
- Running a mile is both easy and hard. You never get comfortable, but just as it gets really uncomfortable, you’re done.
- Waking up to run is better than having a run hanging over your head all day.
- I feel good! I’m not tired, not sore, not fatigued. In fact, I think the short runs help loosen things up and keep the ol’ blood flowing.
- Power in numbers! Seeing everyone check in on their miles has been fun to watch–and extra motivating. Keep it up, Angels! —Aidz
