I don’t like making excuses, either something happens or it does not happen. August presented many opportunities for a choice, in which I chose to say “screw it” for whatever reason I had that day.

To give myself some accountability for September, I’ve decided to use RunKeeper to log each run for the month. I figure if I publicly log my runs, maybe I won’t make the “screw it” decision. We will see.

The great thing to report about this month is that my daily activity is much higher and less sedentary after implementing the treadmill desk on a regular basis:
It might be difficult to tell from the images, but one thing to notice is that scale on the y-axis has went from 5k to 10k. While running training stress is down, my overall activity is up. That is something to be very positive about for the long term.
