Tonight’s run has been my favourite yet. I’m not sure why exactly, it could be a couple of things – but I was totally there for it.
30 minutes of run / walk intervals. Just under 4km, with a good mix of (slight) up-and-down-hill sections. And alllllllll of the endorphins.
… maybe it was the weather. Tonight was beautiful and clear. It was cool, but perfect with a jacket. I didn’t get too sweaty, though I know I worked hard.
… maybe it was the fact I hadn’t been on a run for a couple of days. Yesterday I did a bit of cross training at home, after my morning run plans fell through. And I had intended to run this morning before work, too, but dropped that hope when I was still wide awake at midnight.
… maybe it’s because I haven’t been sleeping or breathing particularly well lately. Yeah… that’s one for a different post.
… maybe I just prefer evening runs, where my body is fuelled by meals earlier in the day, and I can turn off my thoughts of work. Transitioning from work mode to relax mode, claiming this evening time as mine.
Whatever it was, I really enjoyed it and I can already feel the progress I’m making, even just in week 2.
I didn’t even stop my jog for tonight’s (wonderfully terrible) photo. One of those lines is a giant, red moon that was sitting low and bright tonight. Can you guess which one? Ha!
