I've not been running longer as I thought I would, so I'm going to try a new "streak" this week - see how many days in a row I can run longer than the previous day. Minimum increase: 0.1 miles. So, today I ran 2.0 miles. In order to keep my new streak alive, tomorrow I need to run AT LEAST 2.1 miles. And so on. Obviously this is not a streak to keep alive indefinitely. I just want to see if it helps me get over my mental hurdle of not wanting to run longer.
Wish me luck!

It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
I will not be participating in this challenge.
Bring it on.
LOL - thanks y'all.
My goal is to break the mental inertia that's kept me at no more than 3.0 miles per run. I'm thinking I'd like to make it up to 5 mile runs. We'll see.
Off to do day #2...
Sounds like a fun idea -- your graph is going to look really cool! Good luck!
Hey, I hadn't thought of the graph part! That's a good reason to keep it at exactly 0.1 mile increase/day.
Ok, 2.2 done today. Uff... You should have heard me whine! On second thought, maybe it's better you didn't.
2.3 done today, in what ended up being an impromptu tempo run. This was day 4 of my mini-streak. Feeling good so far. No whining today, just determination and starting to remember why it is that I fell in love with running the first time - it was because I could set little goals for myself and then meet them and feel successful!
So far, so good! Tomorrow's 2.4 miles / day 5.

So maybe this wasn't such a good idea. After two weeks, and two "resets" at successively lower levels, I'm looking elsewhere. Heh. Well, it was worth a shot!
Next stop: more structure and starting to try to include one long run/wk. I've planned out September (I used to plan for months at a time, lol!) so all I have to do (theoretically) is follow that plan.
Still streaking. But that's more out of habit than motivation right now. Eh. Habit's good enough.
