Today is Day 36 in the Runner’s World Summer Running Streak Challenge. You know what that means?! Only 2 more runs until the challenge is over!!!!! I am really looking forward to a rest day on Thursday…or am I? I had a quick thought yesterday that maybe I should keep the challenge going.. We’ll see. I’m entertaining the idea. Only because I am so motivated by what I’ve seen on Daily Mile!!!
In June I exceeded the most miles I have ever run in a month. Insane!!! 83 miles. I never thought I’d see a month I ran 83 miles.
Then I saw this!
My pace is decreasing!! I’m very excited about that since I have a goal to PR at my next half marathon!!! I really feel like that dream may become a reality for me!!! I’ve been working hard and I really want it. I don’t necessarily have a PR time in mind because it is a Disney race and they tend to bottleneck in certain areas. I don’t want to set myself up for a disappointment by saying, “I want to do it in X time” because that may not be realistic. But…in looking at this, I think it’s a very real possibility I should be able to pull something off!!!
Then this weekend I got a huge boost to my self esteem when I pulled those jeans on. This journey to lose weight has been difficult. Sometimes I don’t see results as quickly as I’d like to. But I keep working at it and doing what I’m supposed to do in hopes that one day it will pay off. I feel like on Saturday I got that little pay off – that little nudge to keep me on this path!! I am feeling confident that I’m doing the right things on this journey to a healthier me!
I’m in a good place right now and I like it!!
Did you have a good Monday?
What are you doing for 4th of July?
