This morning I woke up at 4:00 a.m. to hopefully get in a ten mile run before work, I didn’t actually get out the door until 4:15. I started listening to my audiobook and the part that I had left off on the day before apparently was a very graphic, scary, run for your life battle/scary creature scene. Usually books/movies don’t literally scare me but it was dark and I don’t live in the safest area (what is the safest area really?) and I was jumping at shadows and imagining crazy people jumping at the fences and staring at me in a scary way? I don’t know my mind was all over the place so I rounded the corner checked in 2.5 miles and grabbed my gym bag to run at the treadmill at work for thirty more minutes making my total mileage 5.5 miles. So tonight I am going to take my dogs up to Mill Creek Canyon (odd number days you can let your dog’s off of their leash on the trails) and run 4.5 miles more.
Can I Split Up My Long Run?
This makes me feel a tad bit better about not just running the entire thing at once, and I may adopt this into my long 18 mile run this Saturday. I will keep you posted.
People think it’s crazy that I spend so much time looking up running articles, reading running blogs, or writing about running and train for a marathon, but I like to surround myself with the stuff I love and knowledge is power right?
I don’t have any new fun running pictures so I will share a picture that my good friend Kim showed me at work and it has been a fun one to send to people randomly :).
It’s amazing right? 🙂
Happy Thursday, today is my Friday!
