I set myself a challenge this year to run 300 times. It was triggered by my sister who ran every day last year. Jan-June I was well on target but hadn't yet managed to run every day in a month. July I managed it. Followed by August. I was now on target to run 100 consecutive days - and today was that 100th day!
Most days are only a quick 2 miles round the woods but that is all it takes.
This has been an interesting challenge and, whilst most runs are short and slow, has definitely had a positive effect both physically and psychologically on my running. Give it a go!
well done Jo!
more of us should do this....I am amazed at people's reactions (mainly, disbelief) when they find that running every day makes a significant difference to their running, either by making their running easier or just getting faster - of course it will make a difference!
It's pretty straight forward really - the more you do it, the better you will get (up to a point!)
Work it into your daily routine and it soon becomes a habit that's hard to break.
Now....what about double days?!
Well done Jo...was just thinking i needed to do a run everyday thing again!
I just need to find out a why to 'sell' this to the rest of the family, but definitely worth considering...if I don't get injured at 4th-day-in-a-row :)
they key to doing this is to remember that some runs need to be very very easy...
6 IT sessions a week certainly wouldn't help :)
Well done Jo
I usually run everyday, not had many off this year. I agree that easy running is key, 3 times a week i run slowly
Well done Jo! A great habit to form.
ideally you want to end up where the thought of taking a day OFF running is something you try to put off or avoid....just don't tell Karen that though!
Running on a daily basis, no matter how far or fast, has many benefits....
Think I need to try this to try and get some fitness back, at the moment I'm only managing two runs a week :scream:
Why not try every day in October...
I think I might...
Does dog walking count around an hour in the morning and 45 minutes in the afternoon every single day?! 🐕🐕
Sorry Sue but no! But if you got those lazy dogs to run...
6 days and counting Jo...
