Brad and I took the Mile A Day Challenge this month. If you didn’t see my previous post, this means that we committed to running at least one mile everyday in December!

I’m sad to admit that we didn’t get out there everyday this month, but the days we missed were when we were traveling for the holidays.

And I did run all 31 miles for each day of December!

We missed 3 days in a row around Christmas and I gained 3 pounds in those 3 days….

It was really difficult to make it out there some days, but I’m glad I did it!

I am planning on doing it again this year during a month when it isn’t freezing outside and we won’t have holidays in which we’ll be traveling.

I’ve always been amazed (and discouraged) by how quickly your body can get out of shape, but this month I was encouraged to find how fast I was able to get into shape! At the beginning of the month I could run a mile easily, but making it to two would have been pretty difficult. After just two weeks I was able to run a 5K easily.

I’m hoping that this challenge in December set me up for being more consistent in my workouts in 2012! I’d encourage you to take the challenge as well.
