Since I joined the blog, I have never had a month where I didn't miss at least one day of running. In June, I had not missed a single day... until yesterday. I thought about going running, but decided against it. My muscles have minimal soreness from Saturday, but the top of my right foot has a somewhat worrisome, acute pain. I decided that running streaks exist to help us run and get better. When we keep a streak going only for the streak's sake, even though it will likely do more harm than good when flirting with an injury, then it is silly. So I took the day off. I may run later this week, I may not- depends on how my foot feels. But just coming off the longest race (time and distance) of my life, I have a lot more to risk injury-wise than I have to gain fitness wise. My next race is in 6 weeks, so I have plenty of time to recover properly. I will be conservative.
