Running Streak – Week 1

il_570xN.3219461151The 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!
