RW Run Streak - Week 2 recap

I've learned a couple of things this week:
  1. Strangely, running every day has made me feel stronger, rather than tired.I really thought I would miss having rest days where I didn't run. But a slower easy mile seems to be more beneficial than a total rest day.  (will this change as the streak gets longer? maybe - stay tuned and we'll find out together ;-) )  See item 2.
  2. It's easier than I thought it would be sneak in a mile on a busy day.It only takes 10 minutes and provides a nice break to make the other tasks of the day feel easier to accomplish. Yeah, there have been a couple of days where I've felt pressured to get the run done and thought it would be easier to skip.  But I go anyway and once it's done, I feel great and as I said, the other stuff I have to do feels easier.  And it often improves my mood as well.
