Not running on National Running Day


I've run each of the last eight days prior to today, National Running Day.

That's 8 straight days covering 66.6 miles (interesting number, no?), an average of 8.33 miles per day.

A rundown:

May 26: 9.21
May 27: 8.43
May 28: 5.79
May 29: 7.02
May 30: 14.2
May 31: 6.33
June 1: 5.91
June 2: 9.71

So today, on what is supposedly the second biggest running day of the year (Boston Marathon 1st, right?), I rested. No running for me on National Running Day. My body is tired and so I'm going to listen to it.

Be back tomorrow for a 10- to 12-miler.

Happy running!

(Man in photo probably did not run 8 consecutive days, but somehow has abs I wish I had!)

tsk, tsk...and you call yourself a runner. Today of all days Kev.

I'm holding out hope that your conscience will get the better of you and you'll get in at least a few recovery miles.

I think a lot of people have scheduled cross-training or rest days on Wednesday...maybe the date needs to change each year to accommodate schedules. :P I hope you enjoyed your day off running!
