We had such a beautiful day yesterday and today. That immediately lifted my spirit up. Yesterday it was sunny and not to cold and we drove to a forest nearby to take a walk with Bella. She had so much fun running around and collecting sticks.
Yesterday morning I did my first online yoga session. It was 25 minutes which is perfect for me. I did the morning sequence podcast from www.yogajournal.com and it was a great day to start my day.
I got up at 5 am this morning to do 8K (5 miles). Normally I get up at 5.30 am so it wasn’t that early compared to normally. When I turned on my Garmin it said “battery low” but I thought maybe it would take a while before it died. Well it didn’t: it stopped after 2 minutes. A few months ago I would be pissed off by that and turned around but not today. Today I kept running. I always map out my route before a run so I knew which route to take for my 8K. I watched the time before I started running. The distance and time therefore are an estimation. I have never run this far early in the morning before work but it felt great. I’m definitely a morning runner and I think I will stick to this routine.
Weather: dry, little wind, -1C (30 degrees)
Distance: 8 K / 5 miles
Average time: 6:52 /km
Average speed: 8.7 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: Aerosmith – Crazy.
I’m very pleased with my workouts last week, I did 6 which is absolutely great, don’t do that often. I also was able to walk at least 1 time a day with Bella for 30 minutes since the beginning of this month. One of the benefits of running in the morning is that I have energy and time to take her for a long walk after work or after dinner.
