Today’s run (street): 4.2 miles
Today is a Monday that feels like a Sunday because it’s Labor Day. Normally my kids would be celebrating having an extra day added to their weekend, but today represents their last day of summer vacation. We have plenty to do today, so I got out early to get my run in, before our day got started.
Although the hot days of August are behind us and the skies were mostly cloudy, the combination of heat and humidity made for uncomfortable conditions. I adopted a moderate pace and followed a different than normal route. I covered a little more than four miles, providing a nice start to this week’s mileage total.
I’ve exceeded 20 miles in each of the last two weeks and hopefully I’ll do that again this week. Tomorrow is a vacation day for me, but with some scheduled work calls, a doctor’s appointment and the process of getting my son and daughter ready for their first day of school, it doesn’t feel much like a day off. I plan to take Tuesday as my rest day and I think I’ll need it. I haven’t taken a day off from running since last Monday.
