I had a delusional moment when getting dressed for my run. It was dark out and chilly, and for some reason, I thought it would be wise to wear shorts. Um, whaaaat.
It was NOT wise. It was freezing out. But it sure made me run the four miles much faster.
Another thing that made me speed it up? It got so dark out so fast, and I have become so paranoid about running at night and colliding with a car. I try to wear my reflective vest when I run in the dark, but I had forgotten it at home. Not much use to me in the closet. I’m thinking about hammering a nail on the garage wall above my shoe rack and hanging it from there – I’m much less likely to forget it if it’s right in front of my face, right?
On a brighter note (hardy-har-har), it’s another week. A fresh start on the old training plan. Whoooo. I’m about one month out from my half marathon, and I really can’t wrap my mind around the fact that I’ll be running 13.1 miles (again). I am very much looking forward to doing a double-digit training run very, very soon. I think it’ll give me a big boost of confidence.
So… how’s running going for everyone else? Keeping up with the training plans? Having fun just wingin’ it? Taking a break for the ho-ho-holidays? Whatever your goal, I hope you’re kickin’ butt!
