Subject: 30 runs in 30 days - who's with us?

Left Brain and I have committed to 30 runs in 30 days.  2 miles or 20 minute minimum to count as a run.

Feel free to do the challenge and leave your updates here for others to learn from.  

I am already thankful to have this new goal.  Last night I was sitting on my a** in my recliner and feeling pretty lethargic.  I was waiting on my brother to arrive so we could go grab a beer and dinner....then it hit me "Sh*t, I told LeftBrain today would be day 1 of 30"  

After 3.7 miles in 30 mins 35 seconds I went to dinner.  

Thank you LeftBrain for motivating me.

Awesome everyone - welcome aboard.  

I just finished my Day 2 run.  4.7 miles - 38 mins 13 sec.  Feeling pretty good - hope I can still say that after 10 or 12 or 30 days.

Alright, good deal.  Glad to see a little group forming, should be plenty of motivation. Last night I sandwiched mine between a 30 minute ride and 30 minute swim....this morning just ran a couple while my kid had XC practice.

I'll do it, but I can't start till Monday because I'm getting over a respiratory infection.  Looking forward to it.

Awesome to have a group forming.

With the peer pressure, I am sure I will complete this now.

Need clarification- Is this 30 days in a row? or just 30 runs whenever. Cuz i thought rest days were important. Anyway, I want in.

There is a challenge forum.

I am holding out for the thanksgiving to new years streak. A really good time to do one if you ask me.

30 days in a row.   Very important not to push yourself, and don't take this on if it would be a huge increase in your weekly mileage.  That is a good way to get injured.  

I am not doing this as part of my Ironman Training - I am doing it to focus on running.

hey, no problem. It is funny how long it takes to find all the nooks of this site. The more the merrier. And I note that my post may have come off kind of like, "yeah, a 30 day challenge is great but why would you do it now and not wait for the thanksgiving to new years challenge." Which was not meant at all.

So you thinking I shouldn't taper that much?  You might be right as I have an IM in November.  We'll see how tired my legs are on Monday (after tomorrow's 100k ride and 5k run).  Maybe I'll start tomorrow.

No - I'm not thinking that at all.  I'm thinking that a 30 runs in 30 days challenge with a HIM as the start is a bit much.  I can't imagine going for a run after a HIM.  Taper should be at least 1 full week.  

Then to have a full IM in November - doing 30 runs in 30 days might throw your training plan off.  

Very, Very aggressive, but I am not one to discourage anyone - ever...so if it is in your plan, I say more power to you.

Didn't take your post as anything negative.  I may continue this streak - but want to be careful to not get attached to the streak and be afraid to quit.  However, I can see myself continuing after 30 days.

Ah!  I already run 6 days/week so this shouldn't be a big deal but who knows.    Tomorrow will start the taper but I'll start the 30 days today after my ride.
