Day 2

Early morning run. It's interesting how you can change your routine and it changes your workout. I couldn't sleep this morning after everyone left and for some reason, all I could think about was that it is supposed to rain/storm today and I DON'T want to have to run in the storm, so I got up and went early. It was a beautiful morning, moderate temperature. We had a REALLY bad rain storm this afternoon, it's still raining and it got really cold, so I am glad I didn't have to run in it, or have an excuse not to run. I felt really good this morning, not like an afternoon/early evening run when I'm already tired. I think I might try to do that more often, now that the weather is getting warmer and the sun is coming up earlier. It wasn't as hard as Monday either. And mentally, to get ready for the day knowing I've already ran is so satisfying. I can't decide whether it is getting easier (relatively) for me or if it was just hard on Monday (I'm sure Scott's pace made it harder for me on Monday!), so I'm anxious to see what day 3 (Friday hopefully) will feel like. Anyway, it is getting easier. There were several times today that I again, thought about that 5K and am thinking I can run it. (There were other times today that I thought I need more training!...) Until next time....

  1. Running in the morning is such a better option for me too. Lots of people like to run later in the day and it has its benefits, but for me and my bladder, it's definitely mornings for us!!
