Yesterday I woke up late for work and promised myself that I’d do my daily run when I got home. This daily run would have continued what would have been the eleventh day of the runstreak I had started on December 28, 2013. Unfortunately, when I got home I immediately got caught up in doing chores (okay, coloring my hair) and then two friends came over to visit. By the time they left, I was ready to rest and relax for the evening and was asleep by 11pm.
And then when I woke up, I forgot that I forgot.
I woke up this morning, got on the treadmill and ran one mile, giving no thought to the fact that I didn’t run yesterday. When I went to post my time on dailymile, it hit me right then. I got so screwed around about it, that I just posted “#runstreak treadmill” and dashed off to get ready for work. All day long I was faced with the fact that I broke that runstreak and then I wondered if anyone else would notice. Probably not. But you know who DID notice? ME.
Oh well, I won’t beat myself up for what I didn’t do, but instead, I will applaud and be proud of myself for the things I have done and continue to do. Today is, therefore, day number one of my new runstreak!
