12 Miles a Week Runners Club - NEW

436 posts in this topic

ALL NEWBIES - FEEL FREE TO JOIN. We have been doing this for a year -- and if you ask all of us regulars -- IT WORKS!

 

We are a bunch of former adderall addicts in recovery. We check in every Sunday to ensure we reached our 12 miles for the week.

 

Studies show a correlation between running and staying clean. Not to mention the numerous health benefits of cardio.

Check in Sunday everyone! I am up to 20 miles this week and I am about to hit the gym because I ate myself to death this week.

 

Also I started a new thread because the old one is like thousands of pages long!!!

Alright -it's 7:15pm. I ran 28 miles for the week. hahahah I was totally motivated to run off the milky ways, giant sized chocolate bars, chocolate boxes, movie theater popcorn, cheese wedges, and buckets and buckets of ice cream. I dont think 28 miles was nearly enough. But next week I am running more than 12 miles for sure!! 

 

PS I am sick of icecream now. thank goodness.And I think I got all my cravings from school satisfied lol.

Good job in recovery! This is my second week in a row with 0 miles running. But: I've spent the holidays in the wilderness staying active, climbing mountains and xc skiing. No excuses though :) Back at it this week!

InRecovery and Zerokewl,

Good work!!! I officially bombed this week with a big fat 0. Ahhhhh! This running New Year's Resolution is going to be for real. It'll help me find my motivation/dedication again. But no excuses, I just didn't go this week.

And Cat too. That's good exercise!

I've been spending a lot of time at my boyfriend's house (which is an hour away from my gym), so you'll all understand how excited I was to hear he's getting a treadmill! I'm really pumped because this will make getting my miles in so much easier!!! I thought my 12-mile club would understand my excitement about a treadmill :)

that is very good news Ashley!! :D

 

I have run 37 miles this week! Why so much? I have gained 10 pounds since I got home  :wacko2:

Lesson of all this - don't go crazy and eat everything in sight just because its the holidays and also

running a LOT does not equal eat whatever and however much you want. :ohmy:
