Holiday Running Streak (Read 2688 times)

stealth_rnr


    I'm running a minimum of 1 mile a day. I want to build my miles back up to 25 or so a week. That would be easy if I put my running shoes on more than 1 or 2 times a week like I have been for most of the last year.

     

    I started early, so this is day 6 for me. I plan on keeping this up past the holidays.

      I had already started because for the past couple years I just havent been able to like running. But I miss loving running.  I know the point of view of streaking becoming bigger than an injury or an illness, but my problem for the last 2 years at least is I take a day off because I just dont feel like running and that day turns in to 3 months.  Plus my chronic problems seem to do better with at least a little every day. 

       

      I had done 100 days a few years ago and really enjoyed it.  I had tried streaking last year but got hung up on the fact that my first 100 day streak averaged 6.9 miles a day, and I couldnt do that.  But I was close enough to try and burned myself out.  Now I am so phenomenally out of shape that I am happy with 1.  1 is good.

        I used this log over a year ago and started again this week. I had a streak of 10 days with 58 miles logged. Last month I ran 40 something.

         

        I'm Cindy, btw.

          ran 3.25 around the area this afternoon, think I hit every traffic light lol.

            This is my second year doing the streak.  Today is the first official day, but I also ran yesterday and Tuesday, so this would actually be my third day running in a row now.  My normal RD's are Monday and Friday, so forcing myself to run on those days could be challenging after a while.

              Same here, but raw apathy has been the norm for me most of this year. Amazing what just getting out there and oh-so-slowly trotting around for a couple miles will do for the rest of your day.

                Man, I would love a little every day.

                    is it too late to join in (and also be a day late - starting tomorrow am?)  I need something to help me stay focused with the coming cold temps!

                      Yeah, count me in too.  A little extra motivation to keep going on those crummy weather days can't be a bad thing.

                       

                      And got my run in for today already.

                          I'm 4 days into my streak. Might as well keep it up through 1/1.  Smile

                            Guests leave.  If they are here to stay they might as well see it like it is.  No bait and switch here.

                              I'm in. I'm having a hard time getting motivated these days - and I'm a body in motion stays in motion kind of runner...
