Day 3482 – The End Of The World Running Club

Oh my, this was a fun book. I’m all about the end of the world type books and with my recent “finding my groove” with running, it was just plain great. What was interesting about this though, was that it was one of the few times that something I read helped me in the physical world in such a powerful way.

As I’m reading, I thought, you know, I wonder how far I could run without stopping, and if I turned off my distance prompts on Runkeeper. It was a little rough since I’ve had essentially a month break from running. But I found myself thinking things like “if I had to run 500 miles to Bret right now, would I keep going?” It helped me keep pushing.

Haha, this experience also reminded me of why I’m slowly increasing my miles. I did this run three days ago and I’m still sore (and who am I kidding, I had ZERO desire to go outside and run in single digit temps). The biggest roadblock for me in making progress in my running (and most of my working out experiences) was being so sore I couldn’t work out for more days than I should. I’d rather run shorter distances and slowly increase if it means I can run three-four times a week consistently.

If you’re into running and/or the end of the world, this was an enjoyable read.
