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?
