I get asked how to start running a lot. A lot. I love this question because it’s easy to answer: use Couch-to-5K or a program like it. But there’s a problem. C25K is hard. Like really hard. Especially if you’re not a runner. Even more so if you’re not active at all, and you’re just starting out with fitness and exercise.
Day 11! What what! Today got me thinking about activity trackers because we have a fundraiser zombie/costume walk as a fundraiser for a local charity tonight–Shoals Crisis Center. I only ran a mile because I knew that I was going to be moving around a crazy amount between setting up and doing the walk itself.
The streak is gonna keep going. The streak has been one of the best things that’s happened to me in a long, long time. Y’all’s support for the streak has made it wonderfully enjoyable. And I just can’t bring myself to stop.
Because I work hard at keeping myself motivated. And yeah, that’s work. Especially when it gets to this point in setting up a new habit. It’s been 5 days, and this is the point where it’s easy to quit.
After running 200 miles in my first pair of no-tie Lock Laces, I am never going to tie my running shoes with normal shoelaces ever again.
