New Year Run Streak

As an attempt to get back into regular running, I’ve decided to start a run streak today, January 1, 2019, and just go as long as I can. Most runs will not be fast, and they won’t be far, because they will mostly have to be on my basement treadmill during Vera’s notoriously short naps. But I figure a mile a day is better than nothing, and will hopefully get my running legs under me again.

If you’ve been reading for a while, you’ll remember that back in 2015, I decided to attempt the Runner’s World holiday run streak: run at least one mile every day between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. You’ll also remember I made it two weeks before calling it quits. At the time, I declared that streaking was not for me, simply because I was too busy. But that was back when I was working full time, and before I had a treadmill at my disposal. We’ll see how it goes!

I’ll be posting my streaking adventures on IG, so check it out. I’m using the hashtag #rbdrunstreak2019, so if you’d like to join me, use the tag so I can follow along! OK, off to feed the baby and hop on the ‘mill!

What’s your longest run streak?

    Woohoo! The disciplined 1 mile per day streak is really a great goal – not so much that you over-train, but enough to get a decent base and keep a decent energy boost 🙂

    After my first marathon I had another half-marathon then nothing, and was afraid of losing my mojo, and read about the RW Streak … so I started it early, and just kept going. I ended up with 65 days before I stopped (should have done so earlier) and ~485 miles, so about 7.5 miles per run … which is honestly too much to sustain through the amount of snow and cold we got 🙂

    Good luck!
