Remember all that running I did this past winter? I logged mile after mile in training for five half marathons in five days and my ultimate goal of 13 half marathons. In fact in the month of March, I ran 200 miles.
Guess how many miles I’ve run so far in June? Umm, I haven’t been tracking, but I’m pretty sure I haven’t broken double digits. And by that I don’t mean I haven’t run a double digit long run. No, I don’t think I’ve run 10 miles total in June. Oops.
In my defense, I haven’t been sitting on my butt. At least not completely.
I did run a ridiculously sweaty 3 miles while I was down in Florida last week.
I also did a workout with one of the IMG Academy trainers.
This past weekend, I hit up Revolve for a workout with the lovely ladies of my local MRTT chapter. (Yes, Woody did the class as well. That’s some hardcore “mascotting”.)
I’ve also done one of the Metabolic Effect workouts and a workout from FitKnitChick’s over 40 workout.
But, yeah, not much running and not nearly the amount of exercise my body is used to. And both my mental state and the fit of my shorts are telling me it’s time to get back to healthy.
So, today, I’m picking it back up with the Mizuno Baton.
What is that?
I’ve fundraised for Back on My Feet before and I think that they are an awesome cause. I’ve also written about the “ifeverybodyran” campaign in the past. Add in my need for motivation and we have a partnership just waiting to happen. So, I’m pledging to run at least 20 miles this week using the app (and do at least two weight workouts, but that does nothing for the fund raising…)
How about you? Join me? How many miles will you run for them?
