I can’t wear a complete head-covering over my nose because I usually run with my glasses and they fog up while I breathe.
But oh well. I still make it work and I’m trying to train for my first half marathon that’s occurring in April.
I also printed out a few calendar pages to write my actual running miles onto. It feels very satisfying to see my progress and my capabilities on a written sheet.
Many times after I run, I still can’t believe I ran that far.
Yes, I did it, and yes, I was there and my legs might be sore, but until I put the number on the paper, something inside my head finally convinces myself that I actually ran those miles.
The fourth week of the schedule started for me on January 30th, when I ran 9-miles.
So how did I do?
The overall goal was to run at least 12-miles each week.
My running totals:
- Week of January 3: 11 miles
- Week of January 10: 19.65 miles
- Week of January 17: 20.75 miles
- Week of January 24: 30.5 miles
My longest one day run this past month was 9 miles.
My personal total amount of miles run for the month was 85.1 miles. That’s just running and keeping track of it as shown in the calendar above.
I’ve been walking with a co-worker on a regular basis during the week days at work and trying to take the stairs some. I have seven flights to climb to the floor I work on so it’s quite a workout just to do it once.
I ran and walked a total of 165 miles this month and passed my own 100-mile run/walk mark on January 20th.
It’s amazing what one can do when one is focused, intentional and trying!
My prayer for you is that you will be inspired.
Be reminded that you can do anything through the Lord.
Have a great week and get out there!
