Is KFC Still Open? – I Think I’ll try Streaking

Happy Sunday, everyone! As I discussed in my last post, I’m not training for anything. Right now, I just like running. I might want to run fast, or I might want to run slow. I just don’t know. The world is mine!

Great times with my family. I miss them already.

I got back from California on Thursday morning and I felt a little out of shape to say the least. I ran while I was there, but I wasn’t capable of running the miles needed to break even from all the pizza and junk that I ate.

4 miles burned off one of the slices of Round Table that I ate. Too bad I ate like 15 slices.

I was pretty worn out from a red eye flight on Thursday, so I didn’t go to work. I had Friday off too, so I guess I came home to a 4 day weekend! I ran a few miles on the treadmill on Friday (one on the manual treadmill, which is unpleasant but they say is good for me). On Saturday I ran my longest run since the injury, a 5 miler!

Felt great to hold up 5 fingers!

Running buddy Wade and I decided to run a lake loop on Sunday morning, and then it hit me. I ran 3 days in a row. I had to look back for the last time I ran 3 days in a row and that was back in August.

I’m going to try something new. I’m going streaking. I don’t care what the distances or the paces are, but I’m going to run SOMETHING every day until I don’t feel like it anymore. I might only run a mile, but I’m running.

Who’s with me?

Anybody else have any streaking experiences to share (running or otherwise)? I’d love to know how it went.

  1. Hooray for running three days in a row! And a five mile run is also pretty amazing too. I’m glad you had some good workouts and enjoyed the long weekend.

    I did a run streak once, and it was not a smart idea. I actually think it is better to do if you’re NOT training- it is tough to streak when you are doing super hard runs or workouts. I really needed my rest days because I was doing 5K races and speedwork. But I think if you are running easy miles, it is probably a different experience. Just be careful with coming back too quickly post surgery, never hurts to streak but walk instead of run some of the days too (that’s what people are doing here who are doing the Memorial Day-July 4 streak).

  2. Ahhh your avg 5 mile pace is probably what I could run 1 mile in right now; ugh I hate the getting back in shape process! I laugh though as a I type that knowing most people would say the fact that I can run 5 miles means I’m in way better shape than most people… all about perception I suppose! As far as streaks I’m definitely not a multiple days in a row of running type anymore. That said, I have had a streak of working out in some form without taking more than 2 days off going since Aug 2016… the only exception being this past Jan. I had 3 days off due to being sick. Not bad when you consider my springs are insane with track and vball! Let’s see how long you can go!

  3. I never intentionally did a streak, but there was a time when I would throw in an easy 3-miler on what was supposed to be my one rest day in the week. That was back when I used to get injured a lot — but I think that had more to do with my cheap ass trying to get too many miles out of my shoes than anything else. Good luck with your streak! And congrats on hitting five miles!
    I had to Google Round Table. I had pizza for dinner last night and the leftovers for lunch today, and I’m still drooling over their menu!

  4. I love the idea of a run streak but know that my legs couldn’t handle it. I love that you love Round Table. We don’t eat at the one in work town- as much as we all love the food, bad things happen when we do. It’s become a reoccurring joke at work. 🙂
