The Pros & Cons of Last Night’s Run
I’m just going to jump right into today’s post and list out the pros and cons of last nights run.
- The moon was bright and beautiful
- The beach wasn’t packed
- There was a nice breeze
- My calves were so, so tight
- 89% humidity, enough said
- I didn’t finish my run until 8:45pm
(bad traffic on the way home from work caused me to start really late)
By the time I got home my calves were angry, I was starving and pretty tired. I’m think my calves were tight because I grabbed an old, really worn-out pair of running shoes yesterday morning in my haste to get out the door for work.
Adam has been on my case about getting rid of a bunch of my old shoes, but you never know when they might come in handy! For instance, I could use an old pair to ________. Well, I’m sure there is a reason and I need to keep ALL MY SHOES for that reason!
Aside from running, yesterday was a pretty standard Tuesday. I took myself out for lunch and enjoyed a nice hour of silence in the middle of the day :).
Right now I’m dreaming pretty heavily about the time change. It’s a little bit light out when I leave the office now (such a tease) but I’m ready for full on brightness. Leaving the office during the winter is so depressing. It feels like I have no life outside of work.
I love the sun! (Just not during long runs!)
I know the time change brings super hot weather, but I’m mentally prepared for that. I’m going to embrace the heat this year!
Since January 1st I’ve been telling myself this is a year of positivity. It sounds silly but I am trying so hard to let go of little things and to be a more positive person at work and at home – and part of that includes not complaining about the weather this summer! haha
(Remind me of this when the real feel is 110* and I have a 15 miler on the schedule!!)
Are you looking forward to the time change?
