Ahhh here I am again, documenting my word and how I am striving at making it a part of my year. It seems that not everything goes according to plan and even the littlest things can become a challenge.
Usually on the days I plan to run I have a number in my head before I leave the house, a minimum I want to achieve. If I'm feeling really good the number may be higher. If I'm itching to try out a new playlist or if I ran recently the run might include hills or speed.
For Saturday's run I forgot my Nike tracker and ran 8 miles, I had 10 miles in my head but not enough time so I decided on Sunday I would run my long run... thinking at least 10 miles!
So before leaving the house I go through my checklist... water, yes, ipod, yes, NIKE tracker, yep, towel, phone, yep, yep....
get to the gym wearing my Uggs only to realize that I had forgotten my shoes!
I could have wasted the morning and not done anything, but I decided since I had run the day before this was just a reminder to do something different.
So for 40 minutes I climbed on the stairmaster in my socks and went 175 floors... phew now that was a challenge!
