10K Done for the Week!


In my endeavor to keep myself working hard on trying to achieve new goals, I made sure this morning to run 6.2 miles (10 kilometers).  Last December, I was trying to think of a things I could do that would test me and would try to force me to become better in my exercise efforts.  In addition to my running a minimum of 30 miles (48.3 kilometers) a week, every week... I also wanted to strive to run at least one day each week where I went a minimum of 6.2 miles (10 kilometers).

I have managed to keep up that goal, and in many cases I have run not just one 10K during the week, but I have ran several.  If I keep this goal through the end of the year, I want to make myself a t-shirt as a "reward" of sorts that says something akin to:

"52+ 10Ks in 2019" or some such thing.  It is a silly goal and a silly reward to be sure.... but I think it helps me to keep trying to do things that help me to grow and become healthier and stronger.
