A Mile a Day - Day 14

Day 14

Another day started as just your ordinary Monday, my alarm went off, I didn't want to wake up to go run, so I got up and I ran. Today was honestly the best run I've had so far in the past two weeks. I felt great from the beginning and tried to stay at a decent pace throughout the rest of the run. I've been learning that a lot of a mile run, as is a lot in general with life is mostly mental. You can go out and run a mile no problem physically, but sometimes mentally you just don't want to do anything, whether it's run a mile or even wake up in the morning. You have to tell yourself before you get started that no matter what may get in your way, you will start that task, and in my case the mile run. I've had a lot of people ask me what am I going to do after the 30 days of running a mile is over, am I going to increase the distance or keep it the same? I honestly don't know, I didn't start this run a mile a day challenge to train for a half marathon or even a 5k. I am doing it because I wanted to lose weight (I'm down 5.2lbs so far in the last week), and I wanted to see if I could actually run consecutive days for a long time. I can promise you this though, I WILL NOT be stopping after 30 days. So don't worry, these blog posts you love reading aren't going anywhere anytime soon 😉

What did I listen to? Volbeat "A Warriors Call" on repeat

Verse of the Day: Matthew 14:17-21, "'But we only have five loaves and two fish here,' they said to Him. 'Bring them here to Me,' He said. Then He commanded the crowds to sit down on the grass. He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to the heaven, He blessed them. He broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. Everyone ate and was filled. Then they picked up 12 baskets full of leftover pieces! Now those who ate were about 5,000 men, besides women and children."

Today was my best run yet, and I think I'm up for doing it again tomorrow! I hope you'll join me either running a mile a day, or continue to follow along here with my blog. Thanks everyone!
