Is KFC Still Open? – I Think I’ll try Streaking

Happy Sunday, everyone! As I discussed in my last post, I’m not training for anything. Right now, I just like running. I might want to run fast, or I might want to run slow. I just don’t know. The world is mine!

img_3943 Great times with my family. I miss them already.

I got back from California on Thursday morning and I felt a little out of shape to say the least. I ran while I was there, but I wasn’t capable of running the miles needed to break even from all the pizza and junk that I ate.

img_3944 4 miles burned off one of the slices of Round Table that I ate. Too bad I ate like 15 slices.

I was pretty worn out from a red eye flight on Thursday, so I didn’t go to work. I had Friday off too, so I guess I came home to a 4 day weekend! I ran a few miles on the treadmill on Friday (one on the manual treadmill, which is unpleasant but they say is good for me). On Saturday I ran my longest run since the injury, a 5 miler!

img_3940 Felt great to hold up 5 fingers!

Running buddy Wade and I decided to run a lake loop on Sunday morning, and then it hit me. I ran 3 days in a row. I had to look back for the last time I ran 3 days in a row and that was back in August.

I’m going to try something new. I’m going streaking. I don’t care what the distances or the paces are, but I’m going to run SOMETHING every day until I don’t feel like it anymore. I might only run a mile, but I’m running.

Anybody else have any streaking experiences to share (running or otherwise)? I’d love to know how it went.

I decided to start a little streak of at least two miles a day. No real goal in mind in terms of number of days. 

Today will be day 25....if I run. 😀

Yes! I think you should. I ran 2 today and I think that's a good minimum.

My workout streak is up to 35 days and counting. You may have read about it in my last post...

It does seem like I'm always a little sore however. My minimum is 30 minutes, although I'm rarely under 45 minutes, because what's the point? Once I'm changed and sweaty I might as well do something worthwhile.

I prove over and over that you can't outrun a bad diet. I'm sure I'll keep trying. Good to see you running happy!

My advice for streaking is to stretch every damn minute you get.

I've been stretching WAY more thoroughly than I used to. It seems to work. :)

I'm with you on that one. I can behave for about 5 days until I fall off the health wagon.

Thanks! Patience isn't usually one of my virtues but if Axl Rose says it's all we need, I figured I'd try it out.

Yep. And I ran yesterday too. If I run today, it will be my 27th day which I believe ties my longest streak.
