Just made it through the tough one.... The 6-8ish evening nap is the hardest one for me... often times redering me as useless as chopsticks. Not today, however. I'm ready to take on the whole night, and then the whole week, and then some.
When I first started this schedule, the whole day was a hard period. I was a zombie.
As I moved on, the days started getting ok and the nights were hard.
Soon I felt tired from 11pm-5am, but was ok after that.
On the face of it running a mile a day does not seem a great deal or exercise. In fact in hardly seems worth putting your trainers on.
Let me take you on a mathematical journey as a way of justification.
Lets take one whole year and for each day of that year you run a mile. That is 365 miles in a whole year. That is not far short of the distance from London to Edinburgh (sorry for the UK reference for those of you elsewhere).
A marathon is 26.2 miles, approximately 26 days worth of running in milerunner terms. If you were to run every day then you would be completing 14 marathons in a year. Imagine that. There cant be many marathon runners in the world that would dream of running 14 marathons in a year.
As you can see running a mile a day is not as lame as it sounds. In fact if you were to run a mile every other day then you would be running 7 marathons a year, nothing to snigger about.
