To be honest, I’ve made close to zero progress. But here’s the thing I realized…
I really don’t care about a PR.
To me, running is a challenge whether I’m running an 11-minute mile or an 8-minute mile (I’ve never done that). I’m content to just be out there and I consider every run (regardless of how fast or how long) to be an accomplishment.
This has led me to revise my goal for what’s left of the campaign:
The goal of maintaining and improving my strength and endurance relates to running as well as other types of exercise. While I’m not currently training for a race, I’d like to keep my running ability at 4-5 miles. Yes, actually running is a major part of this maintenance, but classes like BodyPump and spin help too!
This is a goal I know I can maintain (beyond the close of the campaign) and it’s something I actually care about.
