This week it was COLD! I missed my workouts Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. I decided to draw the line in the sand on Thursday. I woke up without my alarm at about 3:50am or so. I was determined to get to the gym to do an early 5:15am spin class and then run a 5k on the treadmill. I did this and it was much easier to get up than I thought. I posted on Facebook that I was doing this and asked for accountability. Basically I would buy a hot beverage ($5 gift card) for the person who "called me out" if I missed. I knew that was the little extra that I might need to get me out the door.
The 5k treadmill run after the bike was obviously much more challenging than just a typical run, but it felt good and I ran the last .5 mile at a fast for me pace.
Today, I had 6 miles of run/walk/run on the schedule. Overall it was a simple run. Got up again without my alarm (not sure how, but I guess I'm starting to get better at this). I had to be very careful out there because there was still a lot of ice (some I could see and some not so much). I'm thankful I was able to stay safe out there.
The coolest part of this week in regards to running was that my story was published on a blog that is read by many other readers. This was exciting for me :-). This blog is http://www.runinspired.com/nates-run-inspired-story-i-can-do-more-than-i-thought-possible/
I'm also raising money to finish breast cancer. Would you help me reach my goals with fundraising? My goal is to raise $2,620. So far my amazing support has brought in $353.60. Will you help me get closer to this goal?
Thanks! #runhappy #rundonna
