30 Day Challenge Update

I am moving right along with my 30 day challenge of running 1 mile each day for 30 days. Yesterday, I completed Day 10. Overall, each day the run gets a little easier. Yesterday, (and today) I was fighting a head cold/allergies and so my breathing was a little off the entire run. Usually, after completing the run, I walk at least another mile or do walk/run intervals, but yesterday I walked a quarter-mile to cool down and called it a night. My plan was to add another quarter-mile to the run today, but I may wait until this cold clears up. If the cold goes into my chest, I will have to stop the 30 day challenge until I am well and then start over again, but hopefully, it will run its course in a day or so.

I am really excited about heading to the zoo tomorrow! Our weather is suppose to be in the high 60s tomorrow! (WOOHOO) We have been dealing with 40s most of the week. I think part of my cold is the constant change in weather lately. I am ready for it to get warm and stay that way.

Hope everyone has a great safe weekend!


  1. Glad to hear you are feeling better and I'm excited for you that you have completed 10 days! I am going to start tomorrow on getting to that 1 mile. Problem is that I run so slow. Yesterday I went to spinning but skipped the tone and burn class at the gym. I did something to my right ankle but it is feeling better today.

    Have fun at the zoo! Will let you know how I do with my 30 day challenge tomorrow!

  2. Such a great idea - running one mile/day for 30 days.

    Will you post your times for Day 1 and Day 30? I'll bet there'll be a big difference, not to mention how it feels.

    Nice to know that the longer you do it, the easier it gets.

  3. The zoo sounds so fun! Have a great time!

  4. Have a wonderful weekend! I don't like running when I have a cold or allergy problems- I'm always afraid it will get worse! Rest up!

  5. Hope you feel better soon, and great job with the 30-day challenge!
