So for those of you who follow me on Instagram I'm sure you're tired of seeing my daily post of running shoes or selfies that consist of running gear and tech clothes but you might want to get used to it. I'm currently on day 121 of my RunStreak with no intentions (hopefully) of stopping anytime soon.
This RunSteak-ing business happened because of a hardship (ok so I was sad and mad so I took the emotions out on running and focused my energy there instead) and then grew into something that I came to love and look forward to. What started as a way for me to dutifully train for an upcoming half marathon blossomed into something even I didn't think I'd continue.
It takes 30 days to create a habit and 31 to find out if you'll break it. I know I'm past that 31 mark but it's tough ya'll. It ain't easy trying to find time daily to get my run in. Half the time by 6 pm I'm just ready to crawl into my warm house and binge out on tv and social media for the night. Especially this fall with my busy time happening I get so overwhelmed and actually dread having to lace up my running shoes after dark.
As of now, I'm still streaking, but I'm starting to question my motive. Is a mile a day really more productive than giving myself a rest day and going on longer runs every few days? I am a numbers nerd so I hate to break the streak but it's getting harder for me to stay focused and find the drive to get my miles in.
So my question is, have any of you ever streaked? If so, what kept you motivated and did you give up when fall and the cold came?! I'm so close to throwing in the towel but I'm trying to tough it out. I'm thinking once that first snow hits I'm gonna give up, but I'm trying to find a way to stay strong!
