Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

I Think I'm Gonna Streak

Yeah, that's right. I think I'm going to streak. (ahem... a running streak) I toyed with the idea last year, but with coming off an injury and going right back into marathon training, I decided not to. But this year, when I heard about the Runner's World 2013 Holiday Running Streak , my gut reaction was "I want to do this". And after coming off of my 2nd Marathon that didn't go as I had hoped (I Gave Up During My 2nd Marathon) and  no real long distance race in my near future, now seems like a good time to do this. And depending on how this challenge goes, I am considering the idea of doing it for a full year. 
Anyone want to join me? 
So far my marathon recovery has been so so. My knee is feeling a little wonky. I rested until Thursday, and then I attempted to power-walk. It didn't go so great. My knee really didn't like it. So I rested another day. 
I was able to run 2 miles on Saturday with very few problems. I can tell that things aren't 100%, but I don't think I have any major injuries anywhere. 
Today consisted of the SmartStride for 30 minutes, a few upper body weights, and then a 30 minute power-walk this afternoon on the treadmill. Have you ever used a SmartStride? My gym has the equipment to 'test' it. I sure hope it stays because I love it. 
I'm planing on cross-training more along with adding in strength training to my schedule along with streaking ;) 
So, who wants to join me in the Runner's World challenge that may possibly move into a year long challenge?
