#Runstreak Restart – January 8, 2014

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.

embarrassedbag This translates to the fact that I MISSED my run! The only requirement for a runstreak is to run one short mile per day, but somehow I managed to forget.

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!
