I ran three days in a row this week! I'M STREAKING! On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday I ran 5 miles before work. I felt good during my runs and my knee/IT band felt great after. Apparently, running doesn't irritate my knee much anymore. This makes me very happy. I love running before work. I don't have to get up as early as I do when I go to the gym, I get to shower at home, I get some fresh air, and I just feel like me.
Friday's run was interesting. I checked Accuweather the night before and it said it was not going to rain between 6am-7am. However, I woke up to torrential downpour and flash flood warnings. I ran anyway. You can't get wetter than wet, right? I was running through 8 inch deep water at some points while I ran on my neighborhood roads. It was crazy! But I had an awesome Survivor Re-cap pod cast to listen to so it was all good.
I'm going to run today too! This will be 4 days in a row! I would like to go farther than 5 miles but we'll see. If my body is tired I'm not going to push it. I will be utterly content with another 5 miles in the bag.
I haven't run for more than two consecutive days since mid January. Mainly because I was preparing for Boston and trying not to overdo it. But now there's nothing to prepare for. I can just do what feels good. And it feels GREAT!
I know a running steak of 3 days is not long! Do you know your longest running streak?
