Run Streak has Cured my Ankle!
So how long will this running streak last? Not sure. I started on Thanksgiving (after taking a week off of running to try and heal my ankle). The week off did not make the ankle better. Why not do the opposite and run every single day? It worked. My original thinking was to run from Thanksgiving to New Years Day. Total run streak would be 39 days. I rarely run a full 7-day week so 39 days is a nice little streak for me. Once I hit January 1, why not continue through Riddle Run (28-mile fat ass event on January 28)? That would only be an extra 27 days. Doable! And if I make it to the end of January, why not continue to the first day of spring (March 20)? Hmmmm....
I suppose 13 is my lucky number. Today, on day 13 of my running streak, my ankle is officially "better." Not perfect, but feeling pretty darn good. Need to remind myself how great it is to run without pain. The running streak must work for good, not evil. It should not be the CAUSE of new injuries.
