Running Challenge: Run for life; Run for health

Day 1: Date 27.01.2020

This is my official day 1 of Running Challenge for 1000 days (I have been running for the last 3 months but those were not regular runs). 

As I already told you all that I would not miss even a single day for the next 1000 days and will run a minimum of 1 mile every day.
This would be a great achievement for me.

I ran for 3.11 kilometer (1.93 miles) today with an average pace of 7’15” (it reads 7 minutes and 15 seconds to complete one kilometer which is not a very good one of mine. I had even run well earlier. My earlier best pace has been 5 minutes and 23 seconds for a kilometer). 

I ran for a total of 22 minutes and 36 seconds. You can find more details in the images given below.

I am improving and I know that coming runs for the next 999 days would be more fun and bigger achievements.

I ran with Fila Shoes and I nicknamed it “Enthu”.

Don’t forget to share your own achievements. No matter how small they seemed to you. It might feel you hard, unbearable and you may plan to quit but this is the time of patience and big gains for the future.

“Little achievements add up and become massive without you even realizing them”

Day 2: Date 28.01.2020

This is day 2 of my 1000 days running challenge. As you all know taking action is the hardest thing in succeeding. When the first time I planned for running, I was a sophomore and that is 17 years back. I did nothing, I planned and planned only. It took me 17 years to take action.

You must not wait so far. Well, I know you have a ton of excuses but if you look at them with a different perspective, they are all nothing but tinny obstacles that are preventing you to take actions. Running is not only good; it is the best thing (at least I find it so because it has really changed me a lot and I see real improvements)

People learn and learn but can we succeed if we don’t put that gained knowledge to work for us?

So what is stopping you from taking actions? Get up and just do it from today because you would never get the best time and best track for running. It is all up there.

I ran for 26 minutes and one second, covered the distance of 4.04 kilometers (2.51 miles). My running pace was 6’26” (6 minutes and 26 seconds)

Day 3: Date 29.01.2020

This is Day 3 of my 1000 days running challenge. I want to tell you from my heart that I have been a very lazy and shy fellow. Those are the biggest obstacles that prevented me from taking action. But, I have overcome all of them. And everybody can too do the same and succeed in anything of life.

From the words of the greatest mentor; Earl Shoaff, “anything that comes to us, comes from us. Nothing comes to us from anywhere. We get what we think about”. You are the only person who can change your life.

I ran for 27 minutes and one second today covered a total distance of 4.03 kilometers (2.5 miles). My today pace was 6’42”.

Day 4: Date 30.01.2020

Day 4 of 1000 Days running challenge is completed today.
Do you know what matters most to me now? Completing my run every day; without fail.
Today is the best day of my running because I have never completed 4.25 kilometers in a single day and on a single run since I have been running.

Today, I ran fast for the first 1 kilometer and completed it in 5’30” (5 minutes and 30 seconds). The outside temperature was 14 degrees. You can also find the images of the ground where I run today below.

I felt very hard in running my 1st 1 kilometer and many times I felt to stop but once I completed it I continued and covered a total distance of 4.25 kilometers. I ran for a total of 25 minutes and 39 seconds with an average pace of 6’02”.

I initially planned to run for a total of 30 minutes but I quit after 25 minutes and 39 seconds. I felt very thirsty and tired. I have to improve here.

Do you know Hugh C Howey, the person behind the popular science fiction series “Silo”? Hugh has lived the life of complete obscurity as a writer until his work got huge public attention after “Wool” was published. He never thought of such huge popularity and overnight recognition of his writing.

But do you know what made him so popular?

Consistently writing and completing his work without even thinking of success.

If he gave up early; the chances are nobody would know him and we could not have such a great writer with us. So, get up, motivate yourself daily and get to run every day without fail.

Keep doing and accumulating small wins, in the long run, they would surprise you. And don't forget to share your small wins to us.

Day 5: Date 31.01.2020

It is the 5th day of my 1000 days running challenge.

Today I covered 3.01 kilometers (1.87 miles) in 19 minutes and 51 seconds. My average pace was 6 minutes and 37 seconds.

I am improving my pace for the first 3 kilometers and want to complete it in less than 18 minutes. There is a temple of Lord Hanuman adjacent to the ground where I run I have attached the photo of the temple below( God Bless Us All)

Running is hard, but the satisfaction I feel after the completion of my rounds is just amazing. Rounds by rounds I feel tired, exhausted and sweating high but the feeling of big achievement after the completion is what that always takes me to the ground for running every day.

Slowly and slowly it is becoming more of my habit. I like the essence. I want this habit the most in me.

Here are the old and powerful lines for you if you are tired and planned to quit, “You don’t go up and succeed if you stay in your comfort zone because the success is always outside the boundary of your comfort zone”.

Keep in mind “every step counts”. So get up and run no matter what comes on the way.
Never forget to share your journey and thoughts. How many kilometers did you run today?

This is my 6th day of the 1000 Day Running Challenge.
This is my best. I covered today my first kilometer in only 5 minutes and 19 seconds (My earlier best is 5’23”).

The total time taken to run 2.04 kilometers was 12 minutes and one second. The average pace for today's run was 5’53” which is an achievement for me.

This is an average run and I am targeting to cover 2 kilometers in less than 7 minutes. However, that is not an easy target but it is not tough either. I am doing and would achieve it.

Tomorrow I am going to run for 2 kilometers on a different track. I would share the details of that track and ground in the post of tomorrow.
“You can’t change yourself until you act in the direction of legend”
If you think you’re good, try to be better and if you’re better try to be the best, this is the only path to your excellence”

After completion of today’s run, I have completed the 9th day of my 1000 days running challenge. I was feeling feverish today, but I can’t just make any excuse. Like past days, I was on time and went to the track and run. 

The feeling of joy and accomplishment once the race is completed is what that makes me delighted. You can too feel the same if you start loving your running track.

I want to make it clear to you that running is hard and painful and not everybody is going to try it. But, I feel very happy and delighted when I complete my run. I can’t express in words how successful and happy I feel after the completion of my run. Running also provides me the essence of a healthy feeling.
