Same system as we have done for the past few years, who fancies pledging to a #runstreak for the month of December?
Simply make a promise to yourself to run (or walk)* a minimum of 30 mins (or more) per day from 1st December until the 31st December.
You will feel great, look great and enjoy your Christmas dinner all the more!
So many of us are so, so busy and always find the time to make excuses for not putting ourselves first. All this challenge is about is finding time for you. Just 30 mins a day (ideally running or walking) but even just fulfilling a month of 30mins contemplation or meditation per day will make a powerful difference to yourself.
It is not as easy as it seems. In the 4 years that I’ve organised this very, very few people have actually made it all the way to the end. In 2015 we had over 158 people start the challenge and just a handful made it to the end completing the 30 mins per day every day.
All are welcome to take part.
This year I have been under a lot of stress myself and find that exercise is almost a meditation in itself for me. That is the real purpose of this challenge – just some personal time out time.
Look forward to hearing your stories and don’t forget the Christmas Day #SanityClause!! 🙂
Here is the entry form for logging your runs and time:
*NB It is worth highlighting that while this initially started as a running challenge it is not all about running.
The best anyone can take from this exercise is the mind-time. It really does not matter how you spend your time as long as it is alone and in contemplation.
Some do yoga, some, read, some meditate, swim, run, hike, bike. It really is about that habit of thinking about yourself, for yourself.
That’s what I have come to appreciate about it.
