Final 120 Days

29 mailboxes a day for a week

Assume 1,600 meters for a mile, or 16 mailboxes.

Began this week (yesterday, Monday, Memorial Day) running 29 mailboxes a day. We will repeat this today through Friday.

This is the start of our 40th week.

The math says for 11 weeks, we didn’t add a mailbox. The weeks we didn’t add, we just duplicated the previous week’s total mailbox’s.

Eleven “mailboxes” equal 1,100 meters – almost 3/4 of a mile.

Son, please bank on slow and steady winning the race.

While we may”only” be at 29 mailboxes for 40 weeks, we have been waking up early and hitting it for 40 continuous weeks.

The real metric is not distance, it’s hidden in the habit transformation.

Stop Pre

Steve Prefontaine at one time owned every American running record from 1,000 meters, 1,500 meters, 3,000 meters and 5,000 meters. His competitors made shirts like this…it never worked. They are legendary and currently available at U of Oregon’s bookstore.

Your body is a gift. Please don’t sacrifice it.

In my opinion.

What’s your opinion?

If you don’t have one, that may be part of your challenge, and your opportunity.

Today begins run-one-mailbox-a-day-for a week

Swimming pool float
Took this photo yesterday to text Cheryl a question about our pool floats.

 

Today begins “run-one-mailbox-a-day-for a week”.

Why?

The rest-break from running has been 19 months – 18 months longer than intended, and it’s time to see if the rest worked.

Years of chronic foot pain prompted a last ditch effort to try a remedy (prolonged rest) i had never attempted.

Just came back from a super slow jog from our mailbox to our neighbor’s mailbox – roughly 100 meters.

PS. Today is opening day for the 2018 Masters Track and Field National Championships in Spokane, Washington.

Coincidence?

No.
