|Where I still am (src)|
My refusal to return mentally from vacation means that I feel like I am always in catch-up mode. In regards to running it means that I only ran twice during the week (not counting this weekend). And neither time was early in the morning.
The first run was a 3-mile run in the evening as DJ Research was putting Nugget to bed. I was bored with my usual 3-mile loop so I decided to mix things up. Rather than turn right out of my front door, I turned left through a different part of the neighborhood. Result: still boring. But at least I got it done.
The second run was more enjoyable of the two. I did a 7-mile run around Lake A. on my lunch break. Last time I did this run was in late March when the weather was significantly cooler. On this first go round I tackled the 7-miles in 67 minutes. I'm a stronger runner now and was hoping to make it back in under an hour. This go round, I did it in 60 minutes flat which, considering the heat and humidity, I am a-ok with. (And DO NOT ask if I showered after my run unless you are prepared for the TRUTH <------ this statement sponsored by my stick of deodorant).
Do you work out on your lunch break?
