Good and bad days

In running we often say we have good days and bad days. Just recently I had a couple of days when I seemed to struggle a little during my run, of course I had the initial inspiration to go out there and run, so that was good. Then after a couple of days my run felt really good and yet the feeling I had to go out there was no different than before. What I have found over my many years of running is that it is important to just get out there, regardless of how long the consistency of running every day if you can is what helps. I never try to force myself to go out and run, there just comes a time in the day when I decide to go. Back in 1997 this led to me starting a running streak that went on for just over 4 1/2 years, that was broken on September 11, 2001. I am constantly inspired when I hear of someone who has a running streak that spans decades and who knows maybe someday I will join them, but mostly I am just thinking about the run I am doing, just about to do or have just done. ;)
