A Short Post For A Short Run

Day #5 of the running streak:  Monday.  My RDO (Regular Day Off).  A day off defeats the purpose of the running streak.  Runner's World suggested running just one mile on these RDOs so as not to burn out.  They also recommend not racing this mile, as tempting as it may be.  The whole point is to just log the mile, so why not run it nice and easy?  And that's  what I did.  I ran 1.12 miles at 6pm in 43 degrees.  It took 9:30 to finish.  It felt great.  When I "retire" from long distance running, I think I could get used to running a mile day!  A 5-7 mile week sounds sweet.... (daydreaming...)

  1. I walked my 1.4 miles, since today is also my rest day - great minds take great advice alike :)

    2. I almost wrote on your FB page yesterday that not every run in a streak has to be 8 miles.

    3. This congestion is in my chest, and I've been coughing quite a bit, I'm hoping to feel better by Friday!

  3. See you tomorrow AM. Weather.com says we'll have 13 MPH winds and it will feel like 31°. Hope I can park close by or that they'll let people into the school to keep warm...
