30 miles, 30 Days

Y'all I am so glad January is over.  It was a really tough month for me physically and mentally.  I was in a funk for over half of the month but as I wrote last week I am getting my head back in the game.  In order to keep my momentum I am doing 30 miles in 30 days.{I got this idea from a fellow blogger I follow on instagram @frompregnantomarathon}  I am going to commit to running 1 mile a day from Feb 4th-March 5th. {I am starting on Tuesday because I am trying to get over a cold} During these 30 days I am also going to do strength training 3-4 times a week as well.

I am doing this challenge so I won't focus on weight loss as my only measurement of success.  It is so hard not to let that number control my life!  I am also hopeful that I will increase the pace of my mile.  Last week I had a 15 min mile and maybe I can shave a few minutes off my time in the 30 days.  I will be posting progress updates on my instagram (@assignmentamanda) throughout the challenge.

I hope that you will join me!

Until next time,
