So I got into work early today so I could try to beat the sunset for a short run. Didn't quite beat it. Dang it gets dark early!!! And rush hour traffic sucks!
I still got in a 30 minute easy run. Around 3.25 miles. The weather was nice, a bit warm even. There were leaves all over the path. What I could see was rather pretty.
So I think until I start official Boston training I am going to try to run more often but less miles. AKA more than 3 days a week but less mileage each run. My running pals call this kind of mileage "junk" miles. But really I want to give my body some rest while not gaining any holiday weight and I think exercising 20-30 minutes a day when I can squeeze it in is better than nothing. For some reason I have a really hard time fitting in longer runs unless I absolutely have to during these "dark" months.
Plans for the night include watching a bunch of crap on TV because after tonight we are getting rid of cable for good. It shouldn't be a big deal. We mostly watch movies anyways so we will probably just rent more DVD's. Nix that, hubby is zooming to football so plans include bed! :) Maybe I will wake up early and swim!
