Still Streakin

Yesterday morning, when I got up, it was drizzling out. By the time I had finished my coffee, it was a downpour. It stormed until about 8:30 am, and then not only was it stiffling hot, but Norah and I had plans and places to be.

So that's how I ended doing my run at 9 pm last night -- after I got home from my night class. Normally, that's not a time I like to run, but I was determined to keep the streak alive, and that ended up being the only available time, and it turned out to be a good run. It was nice running without the running stroller, and while I still wasn't Lightning McQueen out there, I was a bit faster (average pace was 9:58/mile).

This morning's run, however, was a different story. Probably because my legs had had less than 12 hours of turn around time, and just the toll the heat and, perhaps, the streak are taking on me, I was wiped out. And while I still managed to eek out a full 3 miler, it was extremely slow and tough.

But as has been the theme as of late: Even a slow, hard run is better than no run at all. So, another run down in the books. 12 days done. 9 to go.

Minimal rest between runs can be tough to deal with. However, do it enough and gets easier ... like everything else in running. Good job getting out there. Cheers!

Oh, she almost missed a run!!! Ha, that's why these streaks are so tough, shit happens...... Remember, you can use your minimum mileage card.

When you're having a hard time keeping your pace, just remember...

"The faster you run, the faster you're done!"
