Let’s skip my lame (but real) excuses for my long-ass absence and get to the challenge at hand. First, I want to say thank you to Iowa Girl Eats for inspiring the idea!
125 by the 25th. That’s 125 miles by the 25th of December! So…over the next 28 days, I started this on Monday, I have to average 4.46 each day.
Sounds pretty easy doesn’t it, but I don’t plan on running every day. So if I run 4 days a week, that’s about 7.8 miles a run; if I’m really motivated at get my butt out of bed 5 days a week, that’s around 6.25 miles a run.
Let me also remind you that I don’t have a gym membership, and kind of refuse to get one. So…I’m talking rain, snow, ice, unscooped sidewalks, blistering winds…I’ll be braving it in all conditions!
Here are my current stats:
Total so far this week: 14.5
With all the holiday fat traps, especially since it’s my first Christmas back in the US, I need some sort of goal to make me feel less guilty about having a slice (actually it was a sliver) of homemade peacan pie at 10:30pm or that unbeatable dessert at the Alpine Inn.
Wish me luck!
I may have gotten a bit tired after today’s quarter-mile repeats and additional plyometric workout! Little bug decided to join in!
Be brave, make your own Christmas Challenge…instead of feeling like a bowl full of jelly 🙂
