So I did my run at lunchtime again today, I can see this being a Wednesday gig for me for a while -- looking down my training schedule only TWO Wednesdays have me running anything other than 4 miles. One 7 and one 2 (that last one is the Wednesday before the marathon!) - and the trail by my work is 4.14 miles, and with me getting dropped off at work 2 hrs early, clocking in an hour early and taking a 2 hour lunch to do that is pretty much perfect. And if I can't do that, I can always do it right after getting dropped off in the morning. Maybe I'll do that when I have to run 7 miles. EITHER WAY - very convenient!
Now I'm halfway through week 7... well....in number of runs. In mileage I'll be halfway through after TOMORROW's run. Then the big one on Saturday. I have to say, I never would have really expected to have such a nonchalant attitude toward running 4-7 miles... less than that as well. It's like -- ok.
Anyway -- after heading outside today to go to work I was looking forward to my run ALL DAY! It was sooooo beautiful outside. The sky was flawlessly gorgeous blue with not a SINGLE CLOUD. Low humidity, slight breeze, SUNNY. :)
(OH and ps. I chose sleep over erging this morning. BEST DECISION EVER. When I remembered I could run in the afternoon I was like, no way am I playing the get up early, workout, nap - game.)
Check out the forecast for my run: 77 Sunny, realfeel - 80, Humidity 40
Also no pain in the feet at all today. Just an FYI.
That's all I've got for today -- just essays on the beautiful weather and running.
Oh and TOM reared it's ugly head today. And work cake. But the cake was in tiny little pieces so very well managed. A happy and positive day.
