Today’s run (street): 3.3 miles
Things are heating up with my new job and I’ve been a little concerned that my training schedule would suffer. That was the case yesterday. In order to avoid traffic that makes a 45 minute drive take an hour and a half, I’ve been leaving the house around 6 AM. I used to run on weekdays at 4:00 AM to get in my daily workout, but I’m not looking do that anymore.
I was resigned to the idea of, once again, missing a run. After a stressful morning I stopped feeling resigned and started feeling guilty. Once I had things in order, I decided to hit the road early to avoid traffic. I debated the idea of doing an elliptical workout when I got home, but the weather was perfect. I quickly changed and headed outside.
I’m definitely a morning runner, so going out in the late afternoon felt a little off. I’m sure my 11 miles on Sunday had something to do with that, along with a tiring day at the office. Getting through these miles was easy, but I wasn’t particularly fast. I’m clearly behind the curve in terms of performance and I have no expectations of a PR at Brooklyn. I hope to get in another run in before Saturday, even if I have to do it in the afternoon.
