Thoughts on Streaking – 43 days and counting.

I’ve been so tired.  The last several months, I’ve been working full time and going to school full time, and trying to find the time to train has been the absolute last thing I wanted to make myself do.  I mentioned in my last post that I’d been streaking for 2 weeks already.  Well, Sunday marked my 6 weeks I promised my friend and now I’ve decided to go through the end of the year and see what happens.

(Me on day 42)

With that, here are some of my thoughts:

  1. I am not in better physical shape than I was 6 weeks ago.
  2. My mind craves the run.
  3. Running when sick sucks, but it is just 12-14 minutes, so I can make it through.
  4. Talking friends into doing it with you is the best.
  5. Finding a dog friend to run with you is even better.
  6. I want to run more.
  7. I don’t want to force running more.
  8. I can listen to Miranda Lambert’s Vice on repeat.  3 repeats and I’m done with the run.
  9. The treadmill can okay for just a mile.
  10. I still like cushioned shoes.
  11. A shitty sports bra is still shitty for just a mile.
  12. Night running is fun.
  13. Morning Jenn still can’t be convinced to get out of bed most days.
  14. Running “just” a mile IS worth it.

Has anyone else been streaking?  Any benefits you’ve found that you’d like to add?

Hello. It’s me…

Hi friends!  I think it’s time for me to get back in the blogging wagon.  

What’s new? I decided about 6 weeks ago that running was stupid and I didn’t want to do it anymore.  I joined Planet Fitness and worked out a few times, but knew I had a race coming up that I had to do if I wanted the bling (King Crab Challenge).

I survived the race and a couple days later, one of my girlfriends challenged me to a streak.  She said, “Jenn, you are burnt out, but give it six weeks. Just a mile.” Two weeks later and I already see my mind shifting around running.  It’s just ten minutes (well, closer to 12). I use it as a quick stress break.  On my 10 hour days at work, I use it as my mid-day break and it’s great.  

Just 4 more weeks to go.
