A change in my schedule and I’m able to run before work.  I used to do this all the time, but it’s been a long time since I’ve done it. Used to always be treadmill runs too, but today I ran outside. Got to spend some QT with the super moon, which was awesome. Short, sweet, if slow, run, but it was good to figure out what I need to figure out in order to make and keep this routine. Some thoughts:

  1. I ran fasted–for no other reason than the sake of experimenting. I can do about 2 miles that way, at least right now. If I want to go further I need to put something into my body before I run. Will be interesting to see how this is different when I’m eventually forced onto a treadmill at the gym.
  2. Need to use a regular ponytail holder–my clip kept slipping and I had to keep redoing it. That was super irritating.
  3. Need to wear my flip belt or the fleece with inner pockets–phone and keys were fine in the other fleece, but I was super paranoid about losing them.

My goal is to get in 3-5 miles before work on a given day, so it’s going to be a fun challenge working myself up to that point. I call this morning a success because I actually made it happen. Off work tomorrow so I can get out a little later and go a little longer. Looking forward to that.
