WolfDreamer Posted August 8, 2018 Report Share Posted August 8, 2018 The title is just for dramatic effect. I'm not in any danger (or am I?). As some of you saw last challenge, I caught the running bug. I have logged just over 50 miles since the middle of July, averaging 2-3 miles a day. This challenge will reflect my new running habits, in addition to the usual fun times (daily habits, motivational gifs, pics, and videos, etc.) but with a running theme. So, without further adieu: On your mark... Get set... GO! Run Your Day: 0430-0445 wakeup prayer/meditation/scripture study journal drink at least 64oz of water barefoot walk with dogs in the morning Primal Body Reboot stretches in the morning 15 burpees or 40 push-ups to wake up the body cold shower brush and floss Wim Hof Method breathing at least 10,000 steps read for at least 20-30 minutes (recommended books will be listed below) 2200-2300 bedtime Run Your Workout: Monday: Distance run (at least 5k) Tuesday: Endurance or Strength workout Wednesday: Tempo run Thursday: Recovery Day: only Mobility/Yoga workout and very light recovery run Friday: Interval run Saturday: Distance run (at least 5k) Sunday: Rest Day I need to make a vow to myself right now on two things: go easy on Recovery Day and take Rest Day as seriously as possible. This does not include the usual daily habits, but no running and no workout on Rest Day. Run Your Brain: read daily listen to at least one podcast per week read at least one article per week about running, fitness, health, endurance, etc. take a brain break (20 minute binaural meditation) daily Run Your Food: eat whole foods aim for healthy fats and proteins lean meats, chicken and fish whole grains snacks: almonds, pistachios, jerky, fruit Book Recommendations: Each of these suggested titles either specifically involve running, use running as a theme, or focus on great feats of endurance/fitness/health, etc. What I Talk About When I Talk About Running -- Haruki Murakami Endure -- Alex Hutchinson Spark -- John J.
