….ok not that kind of streaking. I’ve been in a slump and most of that is due to my insane laziness, time constraints and well I find lack of sleep unattractive. So my training has taken a back seat for a little bit and I would get a run in whenever I found time. With coaching winding down, now is the perfect time to start on a fitness track again. So I’m joining my fellow cool kids and running or walking at least 1 mile every day for the month of February. So in the balmy 32 with possible snow, I set out to do just 1 mile. I know, but after being so inconsistent, I wanted to make sure that I started somewhere easy. I have a friend that I follow on IG, and she’s started it for the month. She’s great…so positive and I love to see what she’s been up to. @pinkcupcakegirl …go find her. You won’t be sorry!
I signed up for a 5k this weekend just to keep the streak going and to have something to train for. I also have a 10k on Valentines day. So I have plenty of running to do soon and what scares me the most, is that my first half of the year is coming up very fast. Almost too fast. The DC Rock n’ Roll will be here before I know it and that’s the first big race of the season. I ran it last year with very few training miles under my belt and I was sick as well. I finished and it was definitely not a PR by any means. So I’m hoping that I can do better this year and get around my PR time. I’ve decided to start by adding a few things into my training as well, more stretching, yoga, and some strength training. I need to get those in order as well. I was doing some body weight exercises last night during the commercials from the big game and wow…I’ve been out of it for so long. I’m hoping that after a few weeks it will start making a difference and it will make a bigger difference in all aspects of my training.
I’m still working on my goal for 2015. 1000 miles. And well, I’ve made a baby dent. And by baby dent I mean only 24 miles down and 976 more to go. I am hoping that this month I’ll make a toddler sized dent and get back on track. I really am starting to question why I thought this was a good idea. But it’s a goal and on 31 December 2015, if I complete it, I will definitely be doing something nice to treat myself.
So who is joining me? Lets go streaking!!!
