Good morning everybody! This post is more for me that for anybody else... but I hope you don't mind
First I hope you are all well and who likes running in the morning had a great run (for most of us it was probably in the rain so exercise, therapy and shower in the same time... and for free!!!). For the others enjoy your run in any other moment of today
This morning I almost gave up and stayed in bed... I was tired, cold and demotivated (why am I doing this again??? why should I get dressed and run 10 miles at 5 am in the morning while everybody else in the neighborhood is sleeping???) and then I remembered!
This month of July became pretty important in this year of personal record... After having reached the heaviest I have ever been (with 97 kilos!!!) and after having started again running consistently, I am now on a quest to make history (well may be it is a bit over the top, but it is going to mark an historic moment in my running log for a few weeks). This morning I was 38 (now 28) miles away from the 200 miles mark ran in a month (after having run 60 miles in the whole autumn last year and ~11 miles in the first week - 27/6 – 3/7 - of this month...) and giving up now, would be so much my old me...
I realized I need a bit a motivation to make it to the end of the month without giving up and I feel posting this here could give me the motivation I need (once it is out there, it is out there: I either make it (and celebrate) or fail it (and try another target )
So today 10 miles (check) tomorrow 10 miles and on Saturday the final long with 18 miles and I am there! I hope I'll make it and I'll keep you posted
