The magazine Runner’s World issued a running streak challenge. What is that you may ask. A running streak is to run at least one mile every day for a specific time period. In this case the challenge is to run one mile every day from Memorial Day to the Fourth of July.
I missed the challenge that they issued to go from Thanksgiving to Christmas. There was quite a bit going on in our life at the time. But this time around, I want to tackle it. So this week, for the first time in my life, I ran six days in a row. Monday, Thursday, and today were all 6 miles +, Tuesday was a weird 5 mile walk/run, but included at least one mile. Wednesday and Friday both had 1 mile + runs. So I’ve made it. How do I feel? It’s been a rough week on the running front, but May seems to go that way for some reason. I think it’s the recovery from the half followed by the 5K two weeks later, then I ended up with a cold. My running times have been all over the map this week. But today’s run showed promise that I could soon be running under an 8:30/mile pace soon. It was feeling so much stronger. I am planning on continuing the streak. Wednesdays and Sundays will be the hardest. And yet through all of this I plan on Pressing On!
