2013 Holiday Running Streak (Read 660 times)

    I'm in, never tried a holiday streak like this...in fact, never have tried anything like this before. But my motivation is lagging, my life is stressful, and I like having a goal. So count me in

     

    While I can't commiserate in the motivation department I can relate to stress and goals. When done right running should reduce that stress, not add to it. I think you will like it.

     

    Getting through the first week of this is going to be tough for me. We're doing a long road trip over Thanksgiving with two days of 700 mile driving. If I can make it through that the rest of you folks had better produce a doctors note if you dare to stop running. Anybody who checks in at 11:50 pm saying they didn't get their mile will be told to go out and run. And no AmoresPerros funny business.

      I'm in, but don't think I'll be able to run more than I did in August... however, if I don't skip a day in December, that will be a new streaking record for me (assuming I keep running every day for the rest of this month).

        The streak is from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day. Your streak will span from November to January.

            And yeah, August will be hard to top. Looks like that was a big month.


            Finally PRed!!!

              I'm in. I did this streak in 2011-2012, and it remains my longest streak to date, as I'm not normally a streaker.

              PRs: 5K: 22:31, 10K:46:43, 15K: 1:10:35, HM: 1:42:49, M: 3:38:20


              Run Long, and Prosper!

                I'm up for the challenge, my longest streak to date is 13 days...will be interesting to see how it goes

                    toughest run of the current streak. 37 degrees and a steady rain. easier to get out the door to meet the fellas the day after sunday's rinky dink marathon.

                      Rage, rage against the dying of the light

                        I am not going to beat my highest mileage month this year (407) but if you will take 330 put me down for that.

                         

                        Either you ask for something reasonable, like Dougal did with 250, or I just give you one mile more than your highest monthly total this year making December your biggest total of the year.

                         

                        Joann, that's 142 for you. How does that sound?

                          I'm in.  I have to travel back to Maine next month for work and need something to get me out the door in that cold weather.  There is something wrong with the thermometers there.  It always feels ten degrees colder than the thermometer says.  I completely blanked last week while there except one try on the treadmill that ended with my calf cramped up.

                              I'm going to give this a go.

                                Xhris, I am curious to join you guys, but how do you "assign" mileage targets....  Are you the 2013 HRS god and you just tell it the way it's going to be, or what?
