Yesterday was day number 400. I am not 100% sure but I think today might be the first day of rest from running in over a year. To go 400 days straight without significant pain or injury. The streak has accomplished a bigger goal of once again consistently running rather than doing it when I feel like it.
The only reason it is an "I think" concept at this point is I don't know what I'll do when I get home from work tonight. It may be harder to let this thing go than I anticipate I'll post more reflections if I make it past midnight without going for a quick run.
In it for the long run..
"It's not who wins the workout..."
It has taken a week but I'll post my closing thoughts on the streak.
Last Thursday marked 400 days. I took Friday through Sunday off. Monday was a discouraging three mile run during which my knees and ankles showed their discontent with the idea of being on the treadmill. Today was a much better four mile run.
Overall the streak was a great experience. I am moving on to other goals for running. In the short-term it is preparation for a marathon on May 16. Long-term, well, it is to just keep running.
Thanks for sharing the experience. You all have made this a fun group to be a participant.
