I’m halfway through my 30 day running challenge and wanted to reflect on what this experience has brought to me, so far.
I’ll be honest that I was hesitant to start what is often called a running streak: consecutive days of running without rest. I had mixed opinions. I wasn't sure it would be the best option for my training (I’m currently training for my first marathon at the beginning of November). But also, I wasn’t sure how healthy it was to do something every single day. I’m a huge proponent of balance and moderation in almost all areas of life and really value rest and recovery. But, 30 days is not a lifetime and I'm always up for a challenge and something to push me outside of my comfort zone. Plus, how can you know if something is good if you’ve never tried it?
I decided that if I was going to sign myself up for this, I had to be really clear on my reasons for embarking on this challenge and what I was hoping to get out of it.
