Oh the sun.
I love you, but I also loathe you. Can’t we find a happy medium together?
I just can’t tolerate running in you when you’re causing heat upward of 90 degrees. I just can’t.
But, I just can’t stand when I’m at the beach and you’re not causing heat upward of at least 90 degrees. Can we make a deal? Pretty please?
So I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I really enjoy running at night. I love that the sun has gone down, the city is more quiet and the streets are less busy. I’m glad too, because my half in August is at night!
Last night, I struggled to find motivation to get out and run since I kept putting it off. Finally, around 9 pm, I got my lazy self off the couch and out the door to knock out 4.5 miles. 🙂
The Senator happily joined me and so did my boyfriend!
Sweat caused that phone picture to be totally blurry. Whoops. Seriously, it’s such a love hate relationship. I love not running in the direct sunlight, but putting a workout off until right before bedtime makes it hard to actually do it. I am so glad I still got in a great run at a great pace, but still – it was so tough to get started.
No one ever regrets a workout, right? I essentially live by that motto when it comes to staying motivated. Plus, it helps to have a hyper dog begging to be taken for a run every night… 🙂
Do you have night running gear for early, early morning/night time runs?
What’s your mantra when you need some motivation?
What did your workout look like last night? I still can’t plank longer than 1:30. UGH!!
