Ooookay, now I’m starting to feel the effects of running every day! I. Am. Tired.
I’ve gone back and forth, back and forth on stopping the streak and resting my legs and each time I tell myself it’s only a mile. But then I say, a mile is a mile. That’s nothing to knock off.
So I’m still going. Slowly, but I’m still going. I like to call Salt, Speedy Streaker; I’m Struggling Streaker jaja!! : ) Here’s my Streak Week Re-cap:
Thursday 12/19, Friday 12/20, and Saturday 12/21 I re-capped in detail here. I was crazy person and ran almost 20 miles in those three days!
Sunday through Thursday 12/22-26 have been one… single… mile…. each day.
And that’s it. There’s the re-cap! Nothing too exciting
Total Streaking Mileage
: 88 miles
I decided from the last time I wrote to give myself a little break and seeing that it was the holidays and I’d have my husband home for almost an entire week, I figured no time like now to lighten the mileage. I’ve been foam rolling and icing every night and stretching, and also hoping that my leg heals a bit so I can perform well in my ½ and continue to train for my full.
I have a short long run planned for this Saturday and then I’m going back to a one mile a day until New Year’s. I signed up for the Commitment Day 5K my gym sponsors so that’ll be Wednesday and I plan to continue my *regular training leading up to my ½ mid-January. (*I plan on knocking off a running day—4 days to 3—and making it another cross training day per my doctor’s suggestion leading up to my 1/2).
We’ll see how it goes. You know I’ll keep you posted!
Here’s a holiday pic of my two sweeties : )
My daughter insisted on wearing her Nikes with her Christmas dress–girl after her mother’s heart : )
My little big guy turned 5 months on the 23rd!
Tell me, are you still streaking? How’s your running going?
