As a challenge, I’m going to run, bike or swim every day in January.
My pace was good but the first few minutes were a struggle. After the first couple of minutes I thought the only way to get through it was to start exploring new streets, and a few minutes after that I thought “why no start running every street in Larbert?” and now I’m running every street in Larbert.
For more on running every street see – Glasgow.
The effort to work out where I was and what streets I had to cover meant I forgot that I really didn’t want to be running. But now I have to run every street because I can’t stop now I’ve started. While I may have won the battle with my psyche I have now lost the war as while I competed today’s five miles, I now have many, many more to do in order to run every street.
How was it? Physically I felt fine, strong even, but I had to really push myself to start. The mental fatigue is getting stronger as my body says “this is good” while my mind says “can I get a break?!?”
