I actually got to the gym yesterday to run on the dreadmill. Not my favorite place to run since I’ve become an outside runner. When I first started running, the only place I would run was on the treadmill. Now, I dread it like no other. Anyways, since I have been bad and haven’t worked out for a few months, I went and ran on the dreaded treadmill. IT WAS NOT PRETTY! I ended up walking half of the 3 miles I completed. 40 minutes for 3 miles. Like I said, it wasn’t pretty. But I did it!
While running last night, I was thinking about my 2015 mileage goal and if I was really crazy and out of my mind. I want to complete 1000 miles in 2015. That averages out to 84 (I rounded up) miles a month. I don’t know if this is even doable after taking so much time off and starting from the beginning again. Last night was the second time I ran since 1 January 2015. UM….I must be crazy! I know that it will get easier with time and once I get back in a groove and it’s still not even the middle of January. I saw a tweet from Healthy Way Mag on twitter about how your goals should make you uncomfortable. That is true, they should. And this 1000 mile goal does make me uncomfortable because I don’t know if I can reach it. Time will only tell, and we are only 14 days into the year.
I keep thinking about 14 March…the DC Rock n’ Roll half marathon. I’m running it again this year and race day will be here before I know it. So, yes, I do have to get more running in if it’s on the dreadmill or outside. I’ve used all the excuses in the book, my 2 jobs, the lack of sleep, etc. This is always a hard time of year for me to train because it’s the winter, and my jobs, and I’m just not motivated because sleep sounds so much better.
So here’s to 11 miles down and 989 more to go for this year!
