I’m going streaking

Calm down…a running streak. Not a bare buns run through town. I know some people really want to try a nude beach run, but I don’t think the world needs to see what all I have to offer.

But a running streak is right up my alley. This one is from Runners’ World.

 

We’re bringing back the #RWRunStreak to help us—and you—bridge the gap and maintain spring fitness.
Run at least one mile per day, every day, starting on Memorial Day (Monday, 5/28) and ending on Independence Day (Wednesday, 7/4). That’s 38 consecutive days of running.

Thank goodness it doesn’t say how fast I have to run these miles because Monday, I felt horrible from allergies/sinus pain. I ran that 1 mile at a shuffle, but I got it done. Tuesday and Wednesday were better and I got 3 miles each of those. Today, I need to get at least 3.

Is running every day safe? I wouldn’t recommend it for people who are new to running or who do not have any sort of running base. Running 1 mile a day is going to be tough, I’m not claiming it will be easy. But is it safe? For me, the regular running mileage 4 days a week and 1 mile on the “off” days are safe as long as I’m not injured or sick.

How hard is this going to be? VERY. We are leaving for Colorado in 5 days and we will be gone 15 days. Some days, running is already planned. For some days that we will be driving all day, catching a mile run on the hotel treadmill will be a mental challenge. And I’m looking forward to it. And I find it hilarious that we will climb Pikes Peak (13 miles) but I will need to get some running miles in later that night at the hotel.

So, there is my crazy summer running challenge. I’m 3 days in and so far, so good!
