Run streaking that is. I’ve never done a running streak before. Being the injury prone runner that I am, I’ve always shied away from anything that will eliminate the rest days that my legs seem to require. Runner’s World hosted a running streak challenge in December, but unfortunately, I didn’t hear about it until it was too late to join. Plus, I was beginning my Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon training so I knew I needed my off days.
Since their first running streak was so successful, Runner’s World has offered up the challenge again with their RW Summer Running Streak. The challenge will run from Memorial Day (5/28) to Independence Day (7/4) – 38 consecutive days of running at least mile a day. This is a great way to kick off the summer! I’m not currently training for any races so I love the idea of having this challenge to keep me motivated.
Since I just got over an injury, I’m going into this challenge prepared to stop at anytime if I don’t think I can handle it. I’m feeling pretty optimistic though since I haven’t even had a twinge of pain for a while now. I’m typically a 4-day-a-week runner so on my off days, I’ll just run an easy mile. If I feel like running more, I will.
