Hello.... so yesturday was my 700th run in my runstreak. I did not for one minute think I would make it to that number but I did. So I wanted to share a few things that I have learnt and also share my next steps...
What I learnt from everyday running:
*Once a routine is established its so much easier- no gremlins, or other problematic noises.
*My body took a year to get used to it and I slowed down considerably but finding now I am able to push more.
*Yoga and strength stuff really work. Since adding that in I have had not had further injuries for 8 months now- but I do miss Jerry ( my osteopath) but I may go and see him for an MOT/ service.
*If I am emotional, running is SO much harder. Nothing to do with a tired body.
*I am much more on a high after a speedy session or a spin class. It gets the endorphins going better.
*I love my woods- they change every weekend where I run.
*I am really rubbish at signing up for races and stuff, its just not my thing.
*Everything I want to achieve takes me 10X longer as I dont / cant follow plans
*I dont like rules and I like risk ( not necessarily running related but more of a life thing)
I have added a picture- the top half is what I do on average every week, and the second is my tweaks for next year. I have made sure that I have only made one change per day and no doubt I will do my own thing anyway, its just a guide. The run numbers are miles btw.
Next year my goals are:
*Nail that f***** pull up.
*Learn the splits ( first session this morning)
*Do my own JuJu thing
*Triathlon and Marathon ( signed and paid for... no comment...yet)
*Keep on running running running
**Get a body like Lara croft
Happy panthering everyone
