Day 3311 – A Good Reminder That Small Changes Can Make A Big Difference

As I was scrolling through my memories on Facebook, I noticed that I had a blog post about having to stop my running training two years ago. I still remember that day and being SO frustrated that I had to stop training. I thought it was a great plan and I loved getting prompts of when to run, when to walk, etc. But the program was just way too fast for me. I guess I need a slow and steady kind of training plan.

What was hard about having to stop was that I was really enjoying myself and thought I’d finally found a groove with running. I enjoy running. I’m also a very “all or nothing” kind of girl. I have found that’s a big key to my success – having a way to track my goals. It’s hard for me to work out every day, or read my January letter and new blog goals, unless I can visually see how I’m doing. This really was a game changer for me and a small change.

When I was going through the training plan, I was running 1-2.5 miles each time I ran, about three times a week, but I only ran for about three weeks. Now, I’ve been running fairly consistently for three months. While my mileage is nowhere near where it was two years ago, it’s incredibly consistent and I can feel myself getting stronger. I helped a friend move this week and found I wasn’t winded.
