100 days...

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!

Re: 100 days...

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?!

Re: 100 days...

Well done Jo...was just thinking i needed to do a run everyday thing again!

Re: 100 days...

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 :)

Re: 100 days...

they key to doing this is to remember that some runs need to be very very easy...

Re: 100 days...

6 IT sessions a week certainly wouldn't help :)

Re: 100 days...

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

Re: 100 days...

Well done Jo! A great habit to form.

In my case the key to this is pretty much ALL the runs are very, very easy!

Seriously though, physically running becomes surprisingly comfortable and psychologically it is just something I do every day rather than something I plan and fuss about and try to find a reason to put off until tomorrow. Some days are easier than others but all are stress free - it's just a little run!

Re: 100 days...

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....

Re: 100 days...

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:

Re: 100 days...

Why not try every day in October...

Re: 100 days...

I think I might...

Re: 100 days...

Does dog walking count around an hour in the morning and 45 minutes in the afternoon every single day?! 🐕🐕

Re: 100 days...

Sorry Sue but no! But if you got those lazy dogs to run...

Re: 100 days...

6 days and counting Jo...
