Cardio Streak Day 368
50 minute jog
0700hrs 70F

The header looks pretty much the same as yesterday - same time and temperature. It's cloudy and a little muggy outside and I've switched the workout time from around noon every day to early morning. Heck, it's about 80F now and it's not even 11am as I write this, so I've made the switch to early morning out of self defense!

Yesterday I wanted to walk for a few days up to a week just to allow the legs time to rest and recover from the one year daily streak. I started again today with that in mind, however after about ten minutes, I really felt the urge to start jogging... so I did.

I went some of the same 'new' streets I covered yesterday and some of those were directly hit by the tornado a few weeks ago. Instead of stopping to take pics with my phone, I kept going.

Today I covered 4.00 miles in 50 minutes, and that includes walking the first ten minutes of the time. I jogged the remainder of the workout, then finished with ten minutes of cool down walking.

The total effort today was:
4.60 miles
60 minutes

    Our bodies tend to be good at telling us when they're ready or not. Sounds like a good jog!

    It's getting to the time of year when I'm glad to live in the north. 53° and cloudy for my run at noon, and I sweated a lot more than I would in colder weather. 70° sounds awfully warm for a run, and 80° with humidity sounds downright unpleasant.

    I sometimes get the urge to push myself too. I still think taking it a little easier is a good idea, but as long as you are listening to your body it is all good.
