The Runner's World Run Streak that is! I first heard about it last night, the day that it started, so I'm actually a day late. The point is to run every day from Memorial Day to Fourth of July, so I'll just go until July 5th. At first I wasn't sure I wanted to do it. I'm prone to injuries and honestly, I cherish my days off. 39 days of consecutive running. But I only had to run a mile. Surely, I could do that!
I got home and changed. 10 minutes of straight running- no problem! Only thing is, I ran in 8 minutes, 11 seconds! WHAT??? My fastest mile ever before that was 9:25 so it was a 1:14 PR! That's crazy! I've decided that for my normal "rest" days, I'll just run a mile and try to beat that time. But I think maybe I started out too fast. I'm not sure I can beat that!
I've joined a challenge on Challenge Loop to help me stay motivated.
Participating in the streak? Make sure to use #RWRunStreak on Twitter!
I grabbed these badges from Pavement Runner. I love them!
So who all's in?
