The streak continues, but I thought I might be done on Sunday. My trippy right foot is back to full form, but my chronically under-performing left food started to complain in a concerning way on Sunday. I stopped at 3 miles and walked the last planned mile home thinking that it was the end of my streak and promising that come January 1 I'd start a new streak and try to beat this one.
But, it wasn't the end. I didn't run Monday morning, but by Monday night i thought that maybe I could. And I could. What is so fun about this little challenge is its newness. I don't know what to expect. I approach each run with an openness and a feeling of curiosity. How will I feel? What can I do? In that way, these mundane and ordinary 3-4 mile runs now feel meaningful and interesting.
I have happened on a way to feel a little bit like a beginner--where I am curious, open, unsure and excited about my running. I'd like to keep going. But we will see what happens during tomorrow's run!
