So I’ve been reading one of my favourite running bloggers, and she’s just finished a January running streak. Now she is running in Colorado so the running weather is much friendlier than the running weather here. Hmph. It was even 10 C one day when she was out on the trails. Lucky girl.
It’s been cold here, and I’ll admit I’ve skipped a few runs because of the wind chill. Not very brave and tough, me. So…the question that raises its ugly head is…should I streak?
NOT run without clothes. That’s just crazy talk and I don’t want to spend a night in jail. But the kind of streak when you run every day. Even if it’s just a mile. Very tempting.
Think of the benefits…
- Get back in the habit.
- Increase motivation.
- Build self-discipline.
- Spend time outside every day.
Of course there might be a few drawbacks…
- Chance of injury.
- Decreased motivation.
Am I willing to take the chance?
Here we are 1/4th of the way through February and with another COLD week on the horizon. Maybe March?
Tell me what you think.
And just for fun….
See you on the trails, pals.
