Streaking Again

Boy I hope that is true.  So it is going on the blog so you know it must be true, and you know I must need you to keep me accountable.  I am running everyday from May through July.  July will be tough with two trips planned, but I am going to find a way.  The goal: at least one mile a day.  Most days will be more when there is a time crunch or I am not feeling it, I will do one mile. 

Having a treadmill at home makes it a little more realistic. I like to do these streaks from time to time.  They help me refocus, keep my mileage consistent, and teach me and my body to push through.  I am both looking forward to it and dreading it, that is how you know it is a good idea.  A little excitement mixed with fear.  So far so good; I have been running everyday for the last 3 weeks.  So If I don't overthink it I should be fine.  I don't have many races coming up so this will be a good challenge for me.  Sometimes you just have to do something to get out of your box. 

I have been pretty consistent with strength training 3-4 times a week, not for hours, just a few minutes after my run but I can tell the difference.  It is also good to be back at a more normal life and schedule.  That should help.  I do notice even if I am not into it at first, the day is usually better if I run.  I am definitely nicer.  So heres is to me being a joy to be around for the next couple of months. 

What is your current challenge or goal?  Today I am grateful for Mom.  Mine and all of you out there who choose that tough job.  Happy Mother's Day everyone!!

  1. Good luck with the streak, it sounds like a great idea! My current goal is to increase my mileage since I've never done a race longer than a 5k before. My first 10k is coming up in June.
