I mentioned this in my Friday Five post, but for the month of August, I am going to try to run a mile every day.
Despite the fact that I used to run a lot, these days I am not a big fan of running at all. Running seems to be creeping into a lot of my CrossFit WODs lately – either 200m or 400m between rounds in a WOD, or 1 mile timed runs – and I hate it. So, in an effort to improve, and not let the running portion of WODs wreck my overall times, I gave myself the mile-a-day challenge.
I am 3 days in and so far I’ve ran every day!
August 1: after CrossFit class (which included a 400m run in the warm up, and 5 200m runs in the WOD already!), time 10:34
August 2: at the cottage, time 10:05
August 3: at the cottage, time: 10:14
I’m not breaking any land-speed records, but I’m getting it done.
Hopefully I can keep it going all month. I know I will have a few days when it will be tough to squeeze in – like when I’m golfing in Michigan in a few weeks, or when I’m in St. Lucia for a week at the end of the month – but I’m going to do my best.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
Anyone want to join in?
