Yesterday was my birthday! Happy birthday to me!! No running yesterday; however, running must happen today!
Last night while I was lying in bed, I was contemplating whether to run after school or early in the morning. I could go late after school once the sun has gone down, but that really cuts into my evening. By the time I got home, showered, got dinner ready, put Ella to bed, it would be well past 9pm! Hmm…not a good plan.
However, I could wake up at 5am (since I usually do that, anyway) and go for a run instead of snoozing for the next 30 minutes. (Damn you, snooze button!) Ultimately, that’s what I decided to do. You know what? I’m so glad I did.
I actually got over to the school a little earlier than I had on Friday morning; the moon was still visible in the sky (so beautiful!) and the air was warm. Once again, I ran a solid 5K. I’ve been trying to sprint the last 500m the last few times I’ve run. I think I need to start doing fartleks this summer to increase my speed. OK, that’s a schedule I have to work on…
