Eight Day Run Streak
I'm not sure I'll try to extend this running streak to 10 days, 30 days, 60 days, or up to Tunnel Hill 50 miler (73 day streak). For now it feels good to run each morning and see how it goes. I've tried running streaks in the past and never gotten past 100 days without injury. If I can knock off another week of consistent daily running, I'll be happy. Very happy. Then I can start a more structured training program with a longer run each week and some type of speed work each week. Plus a day or two completely off for rest and recovery. For now...it's one day at a time. The doxycycline seems to be working and my chest is basically clear from congestion and mucus. Still a little sinusy, but not too bad. I actually sleep all night. Feels great to wake up rested and be ready to go! The human body is pretty amazing...especially with a little help from modern medicine.
My current run streak is only eight days. Not 80. Not 800. Not even ten. But it feels like I have an infinite number of runs in my future. That would be a long run streak. Infinity. For now, I'll settle on 9. One day, one run.
