I am again going to attempt the Runner’s World Run Streak. This particular summer version goes from Memorial Day – the celebrated date so this year, May 27 – until July 4th.
For those of you who follow my blog, you’ll know I tried the summer streak last year. Problem is I ended up injured after running two marathons in three weeks in May. I might have gotten in seven or eight days before I truly realized this was an injury, not just my imagination and gave up.
So healthy and back at running, I tried the holiday version of the run streak. This one goes during the Christmas holidays. I was just too tired and the weather was too icky for me to get in many days. All told I think I may have managed a total of 11 days before throwing in the towel.
So here I am, again, at the beginning of a streak. It is day two and the weather is ugly and I am just getting started on some work I need to do. Will I get in a run today? It only needs to be a mile. Who knows but my legs are ready and recovered so I think I’ll give it a go.
Have you joined the streak? Have you ever had a running, or any other kind, streak going? How far have you gone?
