2013 Holiday Running Streak - Day 1 - 11-28-2013 - Details
Well, today was day number 1 of the 2013 holiday running streak as promoted by Runners World magazine. You may remember from last year that this is where we common sense challenged commit to running at least a mile every day from Thanksgiving to New Years day.
Since I did a practice bike commute to my office and then back home this morning that totaled 27 miles, I opted for a one mile run after lunch and a 2 hour nap.
My 1 mile run was swell, really, its just that it was kind of like a good piece of pumpkin pie, I was just getting started and then it was over, just like that. Well, there is tomorrow to look forward to.
I am happy to report that now almost 6 weeks after my surgery on October 15th, I seemed to turn a corner with last Sunday's 6 mile run and seem to be pretty well recovered. I've had a couple decent weight workouts since Sunday and went to the Tuesday morning yoga class again this week.
So the streak has started, I have vowed not to send out daily email messages this year but will summarize my streak activity on the weekends. I'm sure that will brighten everyone's holiday season, mine included.
