Christmas Minirunstreak 2/16

β€’18 Replies

So when I dreamed of running every day of the 16 day Christmas Holiday (I know I'm a teacher - it really is the ONLY perk!) I think I was envisaging lovely bright frosty mornings, breath clouding the air, earth as hard as iron and all that.

And yesterday there was sun and the excitement of a challenge started as I ran a lovely 5k.

But cut to today and it's wet and gloomy...Still not to be detered out I went and it felt pretty good despite the rain. A mini jog at a nice pace 😊.

I try for three times a week in term time but in the crazy run up to Christmas have only managed 3 runs in the last fortnight. Got myself through last week dreaming of all the running me-time ahead!


I have the same plan to streak whilst I'm off work. I am sitting on the couch looking at the rain and feeling less than enthusiastic. I will now go get dressed and head out. Thanks for the shove!

I felt so good once I'd got going and am now set up for the day 🀨😊

Yes, I am back, dripping and having a warm up cuppa :)

Great that you got out there 😊


Sounds like a good plan. Well done for going out on a gloomy day. Enjoy your Christmas running πŸ‘

Thanks x


Bravo, Deb! Come rain or shine, eh? I was out too but it only drizzled a bit at the start. Very gloomy, but still good to get out there in the fresh air. I started my run with a nagging headache, but it had cleared by 4k so I was very happy.

Happy run streak to you! Do keep reporting, I am intrigued by run streaks. 😁

Me too! I am particularly keen to see if my knees will manage it! Will keep reporting 😊


Well done Deb! I’m too new of a runner to attempt a run streak, but I hope to do one this time next year.

Have a very Merry Christmas and happy running in 2019! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸŽ„πŸ˜€

Thanks and to you too!

I definitely wouldn't have attempted this a year ago, but am interested to see if I can manage it now.

Happy running!


Yay! Good on you for taking advantage of the holidays to the max. I am off for the same amount but I definitely won't be able to do everyday, maybe every other if I am lucky. Keep on going Deb, come rain or shine!

Will do!

Perfect! Go run and enjoy!

Great idea! I’m using the Dark Sky app to try to fit runs in when it’s not likely to rain, work and family permitting

Ooh don't know that app - must have a look!
