Ok so it was more like 5, walk 6, 3...
A night in with Netflix on friday night made the five miles on the agenda Saturday morning not as painful as it may have been after a night out. I felt good on the run and really enjoyed being out there is the sub 80 degree weather. The end of summer is always so bittersweet because I love the summer vibes (and the weddings, bachelorettes and bbqs) but also love so many things about the fall. the weather probably being number one. So this run was hopefully a preview of what to look forward to from running during the next few months.
I had cross training on the schedule for sunday and since i was at my parents house in new jersey that morning, i knew exactly what to do. They have three major hills close to their house so I set out to tackle them for 30 minutes. Well- a funny podcast and 90 minutes later I had tripled what I originally thought I would do! Still need to get weights back into my routine though…needed to put that down in writing.
This morning I woke up feelinga little sluggish after a really fun family party last night but threw on my sneakers because sometimes delaying the inevitable only makes it way worse. I set out for 3.5 miles and felt immediately better afterwards. It’s always better to just get up and get going! Note to self- remember this feeling.
