I did it last January, and the January before and didn't get injured. Prior to this, I had never run more than about 4 days consecutively. I didn't do crazy mileage, but tried to do a minimum of 2 miles a day. Can't say it helped massively with my running, but did help to switch from looking for reasons not to run, to planning my day so I kept the streak going.

On the other hand, I do know people who have got crocked doing it, and one of my club members who works as a physio is dead against it.

This RED? en.wikipedia.org Yes, most sufferers will eventually get injured or burn out if they don't get a grip.

I RED during Lent, and it's always made me feel super strong and fit. Limited the minimum to 2 miles, which was always 1m easy, 400m fast, 0.75m easy back.

Makes me wonder why I don't do it more during training cycles.

I was going to trawl through my strava to see who stopped.

Lots of fatigue going on I don’t partake tbh did try 3 days a few years back but not for me

Got something to say?
