Last week, if you follow me on Twitter, you would have noticed that I was trying to achieve a goal. That goal was to run 50 miles. This was a challenge from my “My Sweat Project” group that I am a member of on Facebook. Every monthly this group sets a challenge and you have to complete it. It’s a fun and competive way to get outside and move. Also, it’s a great way to change-up your workouts.
So the challenge for February was to run 50 miles. I would have finished this sooner but I go sick and then we had a crazy snow storm so by the time I was able to start the challenge I only had six days til March.
The first couple of days I ran in my neighborhood about three miles each. Then on Monday and Tuesday I ran seven miles each. Then on Wednesday, I ran three more miles. At this point my legs were killing me and decided to break the last few miles up into four runs.
When finishing Friday. I could barely walk and I had a killer blister on my leg. The bright side was that I finally got past the 250 lb mark that I was stuck at.
Will I ever binge run again? I don’t think so. I was really proud of myself for finishing the challenge but my body is still sore. I have to say that it was still worth it.
