Thank you for visiting www.milerunner.me. This blog is dedicated to creating and instilling the habit of running one mile every single day of the year. This might seem an odd idea but one years worth of running equates to just under 14 marathons a year. Imagine boasting about that around the Christmas dinner table.
I will write posts dedicated to absolute beginners, absolute unsure wannabes , experienced one mile runners and people that want just a healthier and more positive outlook on life.
I used to be a serious runner, knocking out 11 miles on a Sunday morning with a few sessions of hill work and speed work during the week. I ran a marathon then got injured, then lost interest and then got fat. I joined several gyms, started off using them and then could n’t find the motivation to go. I found that a huge chunk of my evening was wasted if I did use it plus it was costing me about £700 pounds a year – and that’s expensive.
What I love about running 1 mile a day is that it is so simple. In a nut shell it doesn’t take much time, it’s cheap, I can do it anywhere however I refuse to use a treadmill and as it is a habit I don’t need to think about exercise again.
What I will also blog about?
1. Other simplistic and minimalistic ideas designed to make your life that bit easier. Simple ideas that can be habit forming.
2. Ways of eating healthier but no diets in the traditional sense.
3. Ways of incorporating exercise into your daily life.
4. And as this blog is fluid I may wander in a short radius around these themes.
I hope you enjoy reading the posts but more than that I encourage you also to become a mile a day runner. I’m not a doctor, coach or nutritionist however so please seek medical advice if you are not an exerciser. All opinions on this site are my own and are what work for me.
Oh by the way, like any bloggers I love a like, follow and comment. Let me know how you get on
