CHALLENGE COMPLETE ✅ . Day 31 - The final day of my @RonhillUK #runeveryday challenge is done 💥 . Gentle few miles at @polefreaks steady pace. Great to see how her pace and strength as a runner have improved over recent months and a bit of consistency in her running 🏃♀️💪 . I’ve really enjoyed being part of @Ronhilluk’s challenge this time around. Thanks also to Ronhill for the #runeveryday t-shirt #spotprize ! Arrived just in time for this final day of the challenge 🙏 . It’s always interesting reflect on what challenges like these teach you… . For me, this challenge has reinforced the following about running everyday: . 🏃🏻 Listening to your body is the key to building consistency and momentum with your running. If your plan is to run a 60 minute tempo session for example, but you’re tired and/or achey from a previous run, your body will thank you for listening to what it’s trying to tell you. Go for an easy recovery run instead, and reschedule the tempo workout for another day. You’ll get a lot more from the session if you go into it in good shape anyway! . 🏃🏻 Running every day is TOTALLY doable for most runners. It’s more of a mental game than a physical one. You just have to set the parameters for what a “meaningful” run entails. Define what counts as a successful day. Perhaps set yourself the goal of running 1 mile per day as a minimum. Set yourself up for success! Even if 4 of you weekly runs are a single mile after work, and three are more typical training sessions… guess what… You’re running every day! The big mistake people make is trying to do 5k a day minimum, for example. Be kind to yourself! . 🏃🏻 The community aspect has been great! I’ve loved looking at the stories reposted by @ronhilluk, highlighting runners each day who are out there getting it done. I’ve also found great motivation in seeing runners like @fitcetera and @ianrunsldn making time to get the runs completed and overcome obstacles (pun intended) to keep their #runstreak going. . . ...CONTINUED IN THE COMMENTS!!
