50MilesIn30Days – Week 2

We have actually been taking part in this challenge for 2 weeks!! How quick has that gone? 

Although the challenge is to run every day and complete 50 miles in the 30 days of November, I have to confess…. We have missed two runs this week! 🙈

I have actually had a headache/migraine for a full week now! So on Thursday last week and yesterday we didn’t run. However, we went to the gym and ran 5km on Friday to make up for it, and we will go tomorrow night for another 5km to make up for yesterday. I still think I would like to run another three days in December to make sure we run the 30 days too. 

So this week has been a little bit tougher, but purely because of my silly headache. Nothing seems to help this time. I have tried meditating, listening to my headache music (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28J1PMlY8fI) yoga, litres of water and I even took pain killers! Nothing has helped which has made motivation to go out running a little tougher. 

The really weird thing with my headache is that when I go for a run, it helps but only for the time that I am running. 

Other than the head, running this week has felt really good – we did have a tough run at the gym on Sunday but that was because we had only had a sausage sandwich and a cup of tea before hand. 🙊 

I have tried to make sure I stretch after a run and get a protein shake in to make sure my legs are good for the next day – and I think it has actually worked! 👍🏻

How has week two been for you? It isn’t too late to join in if you haven’t already – Simply run 2.5km every day for the rest of November and use the #ConnectThruSweat on Insta!
