Run Streak Over
This morning I woke feeling refreshed. No pressure. Run or don't. Doesn't matter. Yet I felt like running. And I wanted to run fast. With ice still around, I decided to hit the gym and run on the treadmill. Normally a miserable experience, this time it felt great. I started slowly and kept picking up the pace until it felt just right. Settled on 7:47/mile pace. Kept it there for about 2 miles, then cooled down. It was the best run I've had in more than a month. Looking forward to hitting the trails soon.
My new "running streak" is a commitment to not take 2 consecutive days off. Essentially, this is a "don't start a non-running-streak" type of promise. That I can do. (I think.)
Happy running. Stay warm. After today, the days start getting longer. It's a great time to be a runner!
