In an attempt to get back into my morning-run routine (i.e. run before turning on the computer! Run before deciding to lounge and read blogs! RUN and get my morning started.), I headed out again today. It was a sleepy just-get-going kind of day; my legs were definitely not on par with my mind’s expectations, but we both made it through!
That last 0.7 was a “run it out, Faster” moment; these muscles certainly don’t maintain a 6:30 pace. Today, they maintained ~8:30 and we called it good.
All that being said, I never regret the choice to get a workout done in the morning! Coming home. with an endorphin high, to warm coffee and oatmeal, reading blogs and catching up on NPR – perfect day.
There is another reason I wanted to get my workout in early; I have some cleaning and prep to do, with a VISITOR on the way! My little Sis is coming for the weekend, to bring in the New Year with me & D, and I could not be more excited. The first time she visited me (on her own) was in college, then she saw my life in DC over Labor Day…and that was the last time I got her to myself! We tend to have a good time:
I plan on convincing her to be my running-buddy for the weekend, joining me for a yoga class and walking around in the snow once we finally get some!
This trip will be filled with a different kind of sight-seeing. Rather than historical monuments, we’ll show her and her boy around the mountains, Boulder & Denver. They will be our first official visitors in Colorado! Time to set the bar high…
