#1006- 2 mi

#1007- 50 mi Burning River 50 Mile Endurance Run. I had a good race. I was surprised when I finished 3rd male Overall. The heat got to me and I had some energy issues later in the race, but I feel like I executed well. I put up a race report: http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/discussion/forums/thread-view.asp...

#1008- 2 mi recovery, easily my most comfortable day after post race run after doing marathon or more distance the day prior during the streak. It makes me happy that my fitness is at this point, but I feel like I should have pushed a bit harder during the race considering.

Great job on the race and real great finish too. Loved the RR. You are going to do great on your upcoming 100 miler.

Monday - #729 - 2 miles easy
Tuesday - #730 - 3.5 miles of speed work on the treadmill at lunch to celebrate 2 straight years!
Wednesday - #731 - 2.6 miles
Thursday - #732 - 2 miles while feeling very seasick *and* hungover. Not a fun run.
Friday - #733 - 3 miles easy

I was honestly shocked when I made it through 30 days straight, and then even more shocked when I got to 100 days. 2 years is hard to believe at this point. I certainly wasn't going to let it go before 2 years once I got to a certain point. I am not planning on stopping anytime soon, but I would feel more at peace with it now if I should decide to do so in the future. The only thing that was going to prevent me from making 2 years was going to be a bad injury...which I avoided, thankfully!

Great job on the two years, it gets tougher to let it go the longer you are streaking.

On another note, I made my second sky dive today with just a parachute on my back in less than two weeks. This is even more addicting than running. Wish I would've started this as a younger man, but it is still a riot.

Congrats. For me, the streak takes out the factor of needing self-discipline, I know I'm running one way or another, so I don't think much, I just do it. I like not having to think, its easier. If I did stop, I'd probably just start another. But like you, I'd probably only stop for a significant injury or a major life issue.

Congrats again though, 2 years is a long time, I'm sure you needed some mental toughness to get through some of those runs (like #732)

#1009-2 mi
#1010- 4 mi
#1011-8.5 mi
#1012- 7 mi
#1013- 11 mi trail
#1014- 7 mi

Took only a few days to recover. I was pretty shocked. Next week I have a 30 mile run planned with 8-9k of elevation gain. 2 months to the race. I want to push myself and be as strong as possible, but on the flip side I don't want to injure myself in these last few weeks. Should be interesting.
