Runstreak Day #86

Day 86 of the runstreak... all done and dusted!  Ta daaaaaaaa!

Did one of those 'getting changed into my running gear at work' so that I could run on my way home things today.  And although I very nearly detoured via home to pick up some headache tablets before I went, I didn't.  I figured a bit of fresh air would help.  Especially on a 500 calorie day of sadness, anything to get me going again has to be good.

Anyhoo... I felt like I was shuffling.  But while it wasn't the best of runs, it definitely wasn't the worst.  And the fact that it's always sub-9 minutes per mile even on a shuffly day is a big improvement on where I was this time last year.  In fact, I had to remind myself to keep on going when I felt like stopping because a year ago today I did my very first 20 minutes non-stop of running.  The day where I realised I actually might be able to do this whole running thing... and not die / collapse / collapse and then die.  If I could do it then, I could do it now.  And I did. :D

I run because it makes me happy.  I run even when it doesn't make me happy... just because I can.  And the thought that I *can* run makes me happy, so it's all good in the end!

Bring on the celebratory cuppa cha!  :o)
