Holiday Running Streak (Read 2659 times)

    Well my streak ened today.  I'm in Vermont, in a snow storm, and spent the time I intended to run helping push some guys car out of a snow drift.  Oh well, these streaks are supposed to be motivational, not obsessive. I guess life just gets in the way sometimes.

     

    I did get a decent cross country ski work out in, that counts for something, doesn't it?

    Have you qualified for Boston? I want to interview you!

      Hey, since you started early you still ran the prescribed number of days. You too, kmays. That counts for something too.

        Sorry, Sean.  That sucks with only a couple of more days to go.  At least you sacrificed the streak for a good cause!

         

        I myself have to run 20 miles in 2 days to make I hit my mileage goal for the year, and my wonky left foot/calf/ankle was definitely protesting after today's run in the snow.  Plus, I have a 5K race on Monday afternoon.  At this point, I'm just trying to grit my teeth and get through the next few days.

          I did start early, not sure if it counts for "completed" or not.  Votes on how I should record Kmays and myself on the chart?

            Just put an asterisk behind your name and explain it in the smallest type possible below.*

                So how many of us are going to take a day off tomorrow?

                 

                I've never done a streak of any kind before.  It has been great to feel how my body has adjusted, and there have certainly been a few days where I wouldn't have run normally but managed to drag myself out there...

                 

                My hip flexors and right foot are talkin' to me, though, so I think I might need some rest.  Dealing with IT issues in the past has left me perhaps overly cautious.  Would kind of like to keep it going, though....

                  My unintentional streak began on the 2nd of October. Then I accepted this little challenge which led to accepting a challenge to run 300 miles in December. I'm now at 91 days. I suppose I will still run tomorrow.

                    Nice.  You may as well go for all of 2013!

                      So how many of us are going to take a day off tomorrow?

                       

                      My understanding is that it's a Thanksgiving to New Year's Day streak, which means anyone wishing to complete the challenge shouldn't consider taking a day off until Wednesday the 2nd.

                       

                      I'll probably take a day off when I physically or mentally need it but won't necessarily schedule one "just because." I've learned that if I have time to run and want to run I had better run or I'll just regret it.

                        I've never run a streak of any length before, so this has been a fun challenge for me.  I didn't run on Thanksgiving, but have run every day since.  I'll still plan to run every day I can after tomorrow, but I'm starting a very busy work week next week and I will probably let the streak go sometime during the week.  I've been surprised that I actually feel pretty darn good running everyday.  I ended 2012 with a lovely, snowy trail run today with a new group of friends.  9.27 miles with giant fat flakes falling on us, and footprints filling in nearly as fast as we could make them.

                          ha, ok.  the bottom of my foot is very unhappy, so we'll see how it is tomorrow.  glad I started a week early then!

                              Wasn't even sure about this happening as of this morning, but it's done now! I'll be glad to get back to sane weekly mileage numbers.

                                Despite spending the last 13 days in Ecuador, I managed to continue the streak--as long as I run today when I get home from the airport.  Keeping the streak alive did not keep me from getting fat, though. Heh.
