Yay! So happy to report that I did get up before work and had a lovely 4-mile run at a decent pace. Actually – it was a harder run than I’d anticipated, but I’m chalking that up to the allergy pills I’m taking (I’m not making this up; Runner’s World says not to take decongestants before a big race!). Regardless, I got it done and felt great afterwards, especially while enjoying my post-run acai smoothie with kefir!
Hopefully we can make it two-for-two tomorrow morning; my work friend wants to go shopping during lunch so I want to run early again. Ideally I’ll get to the gym and do an interval run on the treadmill – there are so many workout suggestions online, incorporating speed and incline, so once I’m done writing I’m going to find a plan to follow. It’s always easy doing interval runs on the treadmill because you’re constantly fidgeting with the numbers on the machine and you have to pay attention to the workout – so time flies by!
And that’s about it from here. Truth be told, I’ve been feeling a little sad this week so I’m glad I was able to get my workouts back on track – definitely in need of some endorphins. Two days to go until the weekend. 🙂
