Mile Streak, Anyone?

10 Comments 3000 views

I miss running. I just haven’t been making it a priority and I want to. It takes me approximately 10 minutes to run a mile and there’s no reason I can’t do it daily.

Truth be told, I like the challenge of #wycwyc‘ing it in.

I know not everyone is a runner so I thought I’d issue a #milestreak challenge for the month of June. Walk, run, skip, or crawl. it doesn’t matter. Just commit to consciously covering a mile a day.

I’m hoping it helps me de-stress during FitBloggin‘ month.

Who’s with me?

If you’re interested in what happens to your body when you walk I shared a really cool article in a wycwyc podcast a few weeks ago.

  • 5:45 a.m. handful of crackers and some cheese
  • 7:15 a.m. Post-workout shake (1 scoop).
  • 9:30 a.m. Grapefruit and a hardboiled egg
  • 10:30 a.m. small piece of leftover chicken and an ear of corn — my stomach was growling and I couldn’t concentrate.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Ha! I just posted today about participating in the Runner’s World streak for summer 2015 – 41 days starting yesterday through July 4th. So, yes, I will do yours as well!

    I’ve never done a streak before — so I guess now is as good a time as any — I ran yesterday, so here’s to day 2 :) Committing to doing my mile running — I already walk a ton, so a mile walking wouldn’t be a challenge for me.

    I’m trying to built the habit of getting out each morning. I would like to get back to running but right now walking is easier to justify at 5:45 am LOL. I’m in!

    I totally agree to your quote that running is cheaper than therapy! I miss jogging like the way you do and I hope I can find time in the next couple of days. Wish I can do a streak!
