I’m curious about the consistency of runners in this forum? How many days a week do you consistently run? Every day? Every other day (with rest days between)? Just on weekends? If daily, how important is that consistency?
Take all this to the extremes, and you get Mark Covert (https://www.cnn.com/2012/07/26/health/covert-longest-running-streak/index.html) whom I had the pleasure of meeting several years ago. At the time of this article, he held the longest running streak in the U.S., not missing a day in 44 years, (or 16,075 days).
I might be on the other end of the spectrum… quite a bit choppier, with short stretches of daily running, followed by longer patches of just catching long runs on weekends.
How’s your consistency?
