New plan

So, between illness, insomniac kids, and general lack of running motivation after my big spring season of runs, I've gone 5 days without running. This has to stop. For one thing, I have a relay up at Lake Tahoe in a week or so that I have to hold up my end of. But mostly, I just need to make myself get out and run.

So, the old motivation question. As I was thinking it's time I tried something new, I remembered a Half-Fast post from a few weeks ago wherein Vanilla mentioned he was thinking of running every day in June. Some (probably insane) part of my brain likes this idea...

Now, I've always loved my rest days. Even if I'm running 5 days a week, I make sure and take a couple off to recharge. But I've also read about these people who feel the need to run every day, and would kind of like to see what they're up to.

So, I guess I'll follow the general rules: run every day, a minimum of one mile (although I can't imagine, at this point, lacing up for a less than 20 minute run, but we'll see...)

What do you think? Crazy? Am I gonna hurt myself?

Yes, you're totally crazy. I'll be glad to know that someone else is doing it.

"Everything in moderation" is a very reasonable life goal. But not one I've been able to uphold. You either. :) I say, do it! And if you start to hurt, then stop. Sound like a reasonable amenity?
