82 Days and Still Streakin

I have been a bad blogger as of late: I haven't been posting much or reading and commenting much, but that's because life has been busy, not because I'm not running. In fact, as of today's 3 miler, I have logged 82 consecutive days of running.

At this point, you can probably guess that I have my eye on 100 days, but we'll see. I'm trying not to be too restrictive in my goals right now.

I've discovered that streaking is no different from a typical running schedule: Some days you love running and are eager to get out there and do it, and other days, you feel like skipping it. The difference -- for me -- is that with the streak, even when I don't feel like it, I still go out and do it. So, if nothing else, I think streaking has instilled a new kind of discipline in me.

That, or it just speaks to the power of habit, I don't know.

Good luck on getting to 100. Just 2,000 more after that to reach 2,100 days. Cheers!

Impressive!! I am thinking about doing a workout streak (swim, bike or run) once my race season is done.
Something to keep me motivated!!

I can totally realate to being busy and trying to fit it all in! Don't worry - blog world doesn't ever leave!

Good job on the runs - when I run for 6-7 days straight, I always feel guilty on my next rest day. I think it speaks to our love of the run AND our inablity to give up!

I understand what you mean. I feel the same way when I'm training for a race - even if I don't want to run, I do it anyway.

Color me impressed. I could see myself eating ice cream for 82 cons. days but not exercising! :)

Good job on the streak. I think the things you said about discipline on the run are so true. People think we runners love it everyday. While I do love it, I will be the first to say it is not always easy to get out the door for a run. It takes discipline, for sure!
