Sunday came and went. A drove back to her dorm room 200 miles away after we had Chipotle for dinner. I had a soft taco and chips. My body was not happy with all the salt, but I managed to sneak a 1/2 mile run in before the gym closed.
It was 28 degrees outside and I was grateful to live so close to a gym with an indoor track.
The best part of this run was still having time to go into the sauna for 5 minutes after running. It felt so good on my muscles.
After the last couple of runs that I did after dinner, I decided that I wanted to run before dinner and as late as possible.
I theorized this would work.
However when I arrived at the gym around 7pm, it was PACKED! The track which is 1/9th of a mile was full of people walking, jogging and sprinting! On one of the straight legs of the track I had to run on the outside lane for the entire leg just to pass everyone.
When I arrive at the gym later at night I can run the inside lane the entire time I'm there, which could account for why I have to run 9 1/2 laps to get a full mile in!
Tonight I was beat. Honestly, I only ran the first 1/2 mile and then walked briskly the second half. Maybe it was because I hadn't had dinner yet. So I kept walking until I hit 3 more half miles! Yay me!
I had planned on staying until my son called for me to pick him up from wrestling. When I finished my 4th half mile and my phone notified me of my pace, I texted him to see if he was ready.…
