2018-05-23 - The run will always take you back

swamp runBaby Goat jumping in here today to get your butt out the door!

There will ALWAYS be an excuse to not get out the door. For me, the last few months brought strep throat, a couple minor injuries, and long weeks at work. My training suffered, and after a few weeks of 'slump'... the excuse turned to FEAR! I was afraid when I finally put the shoes back on and got out there the run wouldn't take me back. I eventually sucked it up, laced up, grabbed some girlfriends and got out there. Not only did the run take me back, but it gifted me with a rave run. They haven't all been that great, but I'm back out the door and the fear is gone!

Don't be afraid that the run wont be there for you,

Anna Przybylski, and admittedly not quite as obsessed runner, glad to have my daily run back.

2018-05-18 - Streaking can help get your butt out the door

randy bridgesNot necessarily your bare butt, because I'm talking about streaks of consistency. Examples would be, not running less than 15 miles per week, not running less than three days in a week or not missing more than three days in a row. These are just examples, the number of days miles etc., needs to be numbers that relate to you specifically, numbers that will motivate you. Once you've gone 10 weeks in a row without missing at least three days of running it becomes strong motivation for you to get out that third day when it comes to the end of the week. The same holds for any other streak you have going and are aware of. Read over your running log, and see what kind of streak you might have going already that you are not aware of. If you fail on your streak, whatever the number, is is a personal record. Time to start a new streak and beat it!

It's time to make streaking popular again,

Randy Step, and admitted obsessed runner, and a streaker from way back!
