I found an article the other day that someone linked on Facebook about a Holiday Running Streak that takes place between Thanksgiving and New Years. (I don't remember who, but if it was you...thank you!) and it intrigued me. Never in my history of running, have I ran on back to back days before so I was a little apprehensive to start (and still am...) but so far so good. My legs are a little tired today but that could be attributed to us having an hour and a half long tennis lesson too.

Do you ever look at a word and swear that it looks like it's spelled wrong or is it just me? I'm sitting here staring at the word "mile" that I just typed out and it looks off. Hmm. Anyway..
I'm not sure that I will stick with this. But as of today I'm on day 3. Worst case scenario is that I do this for a bit of time and if it helps lose weight, well that's not the worst thing in the world, right?! I could use the hopeful bump in the weight loss anyway. So tired of seeing these same numbers!
So the other thing that I mentioned earlier was that we got talked into a tennis tournament for next weekend. I. Am. Scared. To. Death of playing in real life. I don't really understand the scoring enough to keep it up. I've watched enough tennis to sorta know how it goes. Realistically Chris and I have only goofed off from time to time and also rented the ball machine. We've never done a proper match, plus, well, bottom line is that we aren't very good. Ronnie (our instructor and the head of the Tennis Department at our local Y), is going to find a team of beginners to put us with. I am competitive to a fault sometimes. I don't like to lose and I know that I'm not ready to face other people. I get mad at myself when I mess up as it is now! Ugh, so yes, I'm scared shitless about this coming weekend. Chris and I are going back and practicing tomorrow and probably a couple more times this week in the evenings. We need it.
We did have a good clinic this morning. We worked on volleys and doubles positioning pretty much the whole time. And we were The Justice League.
Doyle has been super cute today since we got back from Tennis lessons. Here he is sitting next to me being sleepy.
Have you ever done a running streak or a streak of any kind (not talking the birthday suit kind either hehe)? How did it go? Do you recommend doing it?
