With J living in Ohio and D visiting family in California, today was my first day coming home to an empty house. SO weird!!!! What did I do with my freedom? Sat down and finished my homework. After my assignments were submitted, I went for my 1 mile run. I was finished with the evening’s “to do” list before 6 pm!! Nice!!!
Earlier today I was struggling with the guilt of canceling my long run this weekend. Normally if I schedule a run for myself, I complete that run. Then I got my Daily Mile email report:
That word “Fantastic” really inspired me. I ran 12 miles last week. I ran every single day last week. That is pretty fantastic!
Then I checked my monthly total:
There are 5 days left in the month, 5 days that I will run, and I’m already at 63 miles for the month! 63 miles is the most miles I have logged in a month – ever. Not just the past 12 months but the past 22 months (my entire running career)! 63 miles!!! That’s freakin’ awesome!!!
Running, to me, is a competition with myself. I want to become the best runner I can be. Not the best runner my friends or other bloggers can be – just the best runner that I can be. I definitely love talking to other runners about their experience, training, and accomplishments and I draw inspiration from them but I don’t ever compare that to myself. As runners, we each have our own paths and goals. I love that about this sport!
Today – I am completely motivated by how far I’ve come and what I’ve accomplished.
How has your Monday been?
Did you run the RnR Seattle this weekend? (I think I’m adding that race to my bucket list)
What are you motivated to accomplish this week?
