Good morning Streakers!
Today is another great day to keep your streak alive, or start one, or even add another streak to the one(s) you’ve got going on. If you want to get some moral encouragement or even just get some recognition for your streak, put a comment in the comments section below and we’ll cheer you on as we streak together.
Those tough mornings.
A few days ago, I started to feel a cold coming on and so I have been taking some cold medication to fight it off. Unfortunately, that makes waking up in the morning a little rough. In the B.S. era (That’s Before Streaking), I would not respond well to these kinds of mornings. I would either not run or exercise at all or I would delay and fight my brain, which kept telling me to “stay in bed”, “call-in sick”, and most often, “don’t even try”. I would ruminate on this until it was too late to start my run and had to go to work. Then at the end of the day, I would be too tired – or so I told myself – to go run. I recognize these thoughts and behaviors as signs of depression so I started treating them by streaking! Fitness streaking, that is.
Now that I am in year 1 A.S. (I’ll let you figure that acronym out.) I still have tough mornings but I use a variety of techniques to motivate myself to go for my run. The biggest help for me is to not worry about time or other exercises to include in my workout; I simply focus on keeping my streak alive. Often, after I do my run and, these days, my burpees, I feel good enough to do more exercise. Other times, I don’t and I don’t worry about it. Today was one of those days that I did not feel like doing more exercise and I am not worried about it. I kept my streak alive and that is what is important for today!
I hope you all have an awesome day and happy streaking!
