Morning Run – 2.5 miles total, 25 min run easy pace with a walking warm up and a walking cool down.
At Sunrise… *sigh*
I love running first thing in the morning! It’s cooler, there’s no one around, and the sun isn’t beating down on me. It was a gorgeous run this morning!
When I first started running, I wasn’t too into waking up early. At the time, I had a job that meant early mornings at the copier — so running beforehand didn’t make much sense. Instead, i would run when I finished working — around 3pm, the hottest time of day. I always felt really sluggish and slow and horrible. I’m glad I converted to an early morning runner!
Once I got my miles in, I walked the doggie and stretched a bit.
Tad bit worried that my left knee is starting to act up, again… hoping it’s nothing a good bit of stretching won’t fix.
Training Progress Report:
This run makes the last run of week 7. Next week I plan on incorporating more stretches and some weight training… here’s hoping I don’t bite off more than I can chew! I still had to push myself to keep my pace up. To help, I made a few playlists at various BPM’s… I’ll post these soon.
When is your favorite time of day for running/working out?
