I have a confession.
As focused as I am on running and being healthy, there was one bad habit I have had a hard time shaking. Smoking. It’s stupid, right? I fine tune my running form, I eat for proper fueling. I sleep well and I train consistently. Smoking just does not fit into that equation. I didn’t smoke a lot, really – just a few a day, but still… So, I quit. I QUIT! Twenty eight days ago, to be exact. And I figure since they say ‘it takes 28 days to form or quit a habit’, today is the day I can yell it from the mountaintops – I QUIT!
I immediately felt so much better that it was actually pretty easy. My running felt good, and I added swimming to my training just to give it a shot. (Swimming is awesome!) I finally feel that I have a composite healthy lifestyle. And now that it is here, on my blog, it is really official. 🙂
My next half marathon is in December in Vegas and I plan to CRUSH my PR!
Do you have any bad habits that affect your running?
