It's been good. It's been bad. And it's been ugly.
The good? There's a lot. I've been active consistently for eight days already. I've logged more miles this month than I did in April, May, and June combined. I've started with very low distances and I am staying very conservative in the distances so I don't get injured or burn out.
I'm pushing for a total of 65 miles this month. They can be walked, jogged, or run, doesn't matter. But they have to be done. And so far, I've completed 14.49 against a goal of 14. So go me!
|The miles in green are done, clear miles are still to come this month.|
And more good? I'm actually enjoying the whimsy and fun of the daily photos.
The bad? I'm not running right now. I'm mostly walking with a little jogging added in when I can. And since I have a relay race, two half marathons, and a full marathon all coming up in the Fall, I need to get myself ramped up with my training sooner than later.
The ugly? My shins. Each day, my shins are getting progressively more painful. I need to move from the road onto the treadmill to see if that helps as I get back into the miles. I'm not even going to think about what I will do if the pain continues. Because I'm definitely NOT quitting this challenge.
And that's the recap. I can do this. I WILL do this.
