Well yesterday I was bemoaning my lack of running. I had last gotten out almost a week ago on Friday and the plans we have for this coming weekend were making it look like I wouldn't be able to get in a run at all. Evenings are hard; I get home at 5:30 and between diner, homework and bedtime routines, I find it hard to fit in an hour + to gear up and get out.
Enough is enough I thought. I can do this early morning thing! So before bed last night I laid out my running clothes, including gloves, ear covers and a jacket, figuring that 5:00 AM would be cold. I got up, ate a banana, got dressed and headed out. I didn't even make it off the porch before ditching the jacket in the mailbox. I took of the headband and gloves before had gone 1/2 a kilometer. It's a suspicious 11°C out this morning. Not exactly Nova Scotia November weather, but I'll take it!
I only ran for 25 minutes, just over 3km, but it felt great! I listened to an audio book and enjoyed the quiet time. And I think the cup of coffee I had when I got back was one of the best ones I've ever tasted.
I might just have to do this again!
