Well everyone, remember when I mentioned that I wanted to change my evening run schedule to the morning? Well….I may have done it. I finally clocked a decent run yesterday where I wasn’t in need of:
– another 15 minutes of snooze
– a massive “get psyched” session before I ran out the door
Out I went into the morning heat and clocked 4 miles. That is my normal mid week run and I did a couple of half-mile step ups to get my heart rate going. Needless to say I ran a little teeny weeny bit slower but I need to recover from the step ups so I am very pleased.
And also, considering I was at a funeral yesterday (my Barrie Collins rest in peace) and that this was my third funeral this year, I am happy that through the difficulties and sadness of life, running takes to a place that reminds me how wonderful life is, and to cherish it.
So now that I have been doing this for about 3 weeks my goal to establish a morning run as a habit is starting to come to shape. I hope that as winter comes and the days get darker, that I will appreciate my decision!
