Have you every tried streaking? Chances are, if you’re a good, law-abiding citizen, you’ve probably not. Jo wants to change that – she’s challenging anyone to join her on a running streak through September!
The rules are very simple – for the month of September, you commit to running EVERY SINGLE DAY! This sounds like a tough challenge – but as Jo explains, you only need to run a minimum of 1 mile (or 1.5km) a day. “If you’re worried about injury, here’s my plan. I’ll run my [2 or 3] usual runs each week. On the days I might not usually run, I’ll have an ‘active rest day’ by slowly running 1 mile”
As well as building a great fitness base, and doing something totally out of the ordinary, here are some of the side effects you can expect: “I used my active rest days last time, to get my younger kids running, which did force me to run slowly and they were great company! Some days will be tough; they won’t have enough hours in them – but you’ll be motivated to get out of bed 15 minutes earlier and commit to that mile, and you might find yourself running in obscure places just to fit it in!”
