For the past 30 days I've been a runner. One of my hockey gals posted on FB that she wanted to do a 30 day run challenge, the only rule was a minimum of a mile. I figured I could eek out a mile each day, so why not? And I did it. I eeked out a mile each day. Sometimes two or three! I was reviewing my stats, because that's what RunKeeper is for, right? and here is what I found:
Day one I ran a mile at a very slow 13:08 pace.
Day 31 I ran two miles at a 11:40 pace. Improvement.
My longest run was on the 11th, it was just over 3.5 miles and we were going at a 11:49 pace including a couple walk breaks.
Those stats aren't super impressive, most of the other gals were going 3-5 miles and their pace varied from 8:00-10:00. So I am super slow, but I did it. Every day. For 30 days.
Today I am resting!
I am also getting ready for the next 30 day challenge - ABS. We start tomorrow. I set my alarm to get up early to do it.
