5 miles a day

I recently challenged myself to run 5 miles every day for 30 days. This is not easy for me. I usually only run 5 miles when I’m with my running club. When I’m alone, I rarely run more than 3. Now I’m doing more than that, AND consecutively? So yeah, this challenge is a pretty scary thing. 

I honestly don’t know if I’ll be able to do it. But I’m doing this for exactly that reason. I love taking on challenges that seem outside my reach. 

That, and also because I want to regain my sense of purpose when it comes to running. I once gave myself the challenge to run every day for at least one mile. I ended up with a 150 day streak. I miss having a purpose to my running, no matter how arbitrary.

As I’m writing this, I just got done with my 5th day. I actually feel great about my chances of succeeding. I feel like the only thing that can stop me is an injury.

Wish me luck. If you want to follow my journey, add me on Instagram or on Strava.
