I haven’t been a great runner/worker-outer this past week. I’ve done stuff, but I haven’t really been documenting anything.
On Thursday, I woke up and started getting dressed to work out. I was planning on the 30-day Shred, but as I was putting my contacts in, I thought that a run sounded better. I haven’t run before work in years. I think the last time I ran before work was before I was pregnant? It’s been a long time.
And it felt so great.
I ran by the corn maze near our house (and shot a quick photo.) It was so quiet and peaceful and cool. Cool being the operative word. I got in about 2.5 miles before I called it a run and had to get ready for work.
I ran on Sunday and then again on Monday. I decided to go for a lunch run on Monday and I felt good. Not the greatest (because of the heat), but I maintained an almost 10-minute mile pace. Not too shabby for the heat and humidity. Oh my gosh, the humidity! I hate it.
I’m thinking if I run before work, I may start running more often. We’ll have to see how much sleep I can get. If I get enough, then pre-work running is totally feasible.
I did do the 30-day Shred at least twice this past week, but my workouts haven’t been much to write home about. I’m just trying to find my mojo again.
I’m going to sign up for the Positive Prevention 12k soon (it’s in November), but that is really the only race I’m looking at right now. The money benefits a great organization and it’s a fun race. It’s not quite a half marathon, so it won’t be as time consuming to train for (I can do training runs during lunch or at the very end of the work day.)
Do you run/work out early in the day? When do you fit it all in?
