I slacked last week too :( 1.5 measly miles and some walking.

Post your very next run, so I know you are running

:D We will get back into the groove of it.

Okee dokee, I just signed up for a half marathon in October. I am about to go and try to get through 4 miles. Nothing like a challenge to kick it off! Will keep you posted.

Ok so I haven't been keeping up with the mileage but don't rule me out just yet -- Spent a LONG time in the gym lifting weights which felt AMAZING!!! There's nothing more empowering than feeling strong. Running is next.

I did it! First 2 mile run today. Felt horrible at the time (especially in this heat) but great now I've stopped. :)

Lea if I can do it, anyone can!

Nice! and Thumbs up for getting back into things :) I did another five today. Up to 10 now. I feel like I can do more on the treadmill. Maybe its because of not having to deal with the heat.

We will make it to 12 this week.

Running outside probably prepared you to run longer distances on the treadmill. Running outside is a bitch! Another 5? Nice! 12 is in my cards this week.

I am so impressed by everyone's dedication and motivation! I need to get on this!!

Just wondering, is anyone here on Daily Mile? dailymile.com.

The basic idea is pretty similar to what we have going in this thread. I've been slacking lately but I post all my workouts on there and it adds up the mileage for me. It's a pretty good way to track workouts, and you can also encourage friends, comment on people's workouts, start a group challenge, set goals, look back over your weeks and months, etc. Pretty fun. To be honest it really helps me stay motivated.

Sooo, I'm going to join the 12 miles a week club here very soon, but if anyone is interested in joining me on daily mile, just message me :D

Just did 5.5 miles, so I'm at 10.5 for the week :)

And in a non creepy way, I kept thinking of you guys on the treadmill when I wanted to stop, because I knew I had my crew to answer to! It just reminded me of another positive of quitting adderall. I really didn't care about accountability in the least when using, and now it's so important to me. Like back then I'd probably just lie or avoid it altogether if I didn't do something. Sorry for rambling.

You're not rambling, actually I find this really touching. I think of you guys too sometimes when I'm doing something or honestly now when I'm really struggling with self esteem. And I take away a lot of really great wisdom almost all the time I log on. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who thinks of this community in the real world, too

You DO have us to answer too. Just one and a half miles to go. You are ALMOST there!!

(I totally get the accountability thing. The amphetamine addict I think can be really just absorbed in whatever they are doing because they are getting some kind of internal chemical rush, but they are oblivious to the outside world if you know what I mean)

I actually did 30 miles two weeks ago. Then last week...7...Then I fell off the wagon this week and have done nothing.

Have you been running?

30 miles?!?! WOW. I've been on vacation the past two weeks and only ran like 9 in two weeks. I can tell I don't feel as good. Heading to the gym now to get back on it. Very nice, dude.
