Streak Ending?

Okay, so I made it through Day 13 of the running streak by heading out at 10:00 last night for a short, slow 1.5 miles through the neighborhood.  It was a beautiful run, with lots of pop-up Christmas tree lots, busy restaurants and a quiet, empty, Cobble Hill Park.  I kept it slow, and felt fine during the run when I got home.  This morning, I ran to the gym, and didn't feel particulary tight, but when I got on the bike, I couldn't stand in the pedals.  That has never happened before and is a bad sign.  I think it may be time to forget about the "streak" and take a rest day or several . . .


  1. While that sounds quite wise, I have been rooting for your continuing! Hope the rest helps.

  2. Yeah, I am not happy about stopping. I am taking a Wednesday evening swim class, and I have enjoyed running the 2.5 miles there as a warmup. That would qualify for day 14. I think, though, that I'd better break it off here. I'm still nursing this injury, and the "streak" is taking on a life of its own. I think it may be time to redefine what counts.
