This week is flying by for me, but I thought I’d stop in here to give a big thumbs-up to the weather, which has been fantastic. On my long run last Friday, I really did feel like I was flying—the cooler evening made me feel unstoppable after all those humid mornings of trying to run on sleepy legs before breakfast. Now, don’t get me wrong: I am happy that I seem to be getting the hang of this morning run thing—it’s a useful trick, being able to get a work-out done literally first thing in the morning. I plan to do it again on Thursday because I’m going out with friends in the evening, and it would be nice to have a run under my
belt feet for the day. But evening running is almost always easier for me than morning runs—my body is awake and sufficiently warmed up that running is less challenging. I do love my Sunday long runs, which seem like a different beast altogether. On work days it has to be either first-thing morning runs or after-work evening runs. Tonight I’m feeling grateful that the cooler weather as of late has given me the option of both without resorting to a treadmill.
Happy almost-fall, everyone!
