Sure I'm still keeping my mileage down, but I've had some decent runs and even threw in a 10 miler one fair day. Not bad. Regular pain-free running was what I had been looking forward to for four months, so I was quite happy. So, lately I've been streaking.
Oh, not the take your clothes off and run around kind of streaking. I've been doing the run everyday kind of streaking. When I came back from a vacation to the Midwest, where I put in a series of really strong runs, I took a few days off, then went back at it. Each morning, I woke up and felt great, so I would just head out again, and quickly decided to keep it up until the first sign of a problem. As I write this, I'm at 10 straight days of running at least one 5K (3.11 mile) and things are still going well (knock on wood).
So, what's this streak about? I guess it's sort of a celebration of simply being able to run. How long will it go? Until I've had enough of it.
That's all there is to it, really.
