Well, it did count... but some how I managed to muck up recording my run so a mile in, I went to check my pace, glanced down and saw the watch offering to save my run for me. Rats! I pressed resume and it resumed on 0.00 miles. Grrrrr!! I hate it when that happens. It totally drives me crackers. I know it's a bit pathetic but I do get a bit 'if it isn't recorded it didn't really happen' about my run streak runs. And I'd only fancied doing a quick mile... so obviously I then had to run an extra mile to record the fact that I'd run a mile.
Okay... that doesn't make sense, but at the time my runner's logic said that it made sense. Sorta.
How was the run? Ermm... okayish. I'm not going far at the moment, my main goal is just getting back into the simplicity of running. Where I just get my trainers on, head out of the door and have time to just blank stuff out for a while. I don't really want to run with anyone at the moment - which I'm not sure is understandable to anyone else - I need to be quiet. So that's what I did. Plugged in some music, headed out of the door and made up a route while I was at it. I did run out of steam a bit after I realised my watch hadn't recorded my first mile... but that's because I was mentally throwing a hissy fit at my watch and having a 'couldn't be arsed' response to it all!
Tomorrow is a whole handful of days on this new run streak. It's going to take me a while to find my rhythm with this, but I'm going to do it. I have to reclaim my running - I've given too much of it to others over the past couple of years and I need to have it back.
