It's been over a week since my last run. I keep letting the afternoon heat as well as excuses like being busy get in the way. But this morning was different; I finally went for a run. It's actually the first time I've run in the morning before work, and I'm a bit surprised I ended up doing it at all. As I was setting my alarm last night I told my husband that I probably wouldn't run. Then as my alarm went off this morning I pushed snooze, rolled over, and told my husband again that I wasn't going. But a few minutes later I somehow ended up rolling out of bed and putting on my running clothes grumbling the whole time.
Once I got outside things were pretty pleasant though. There was hardly anyone else around, birds were chirping and I saw about a million bunnies. The best thing by far, however, was how cool the air felt. Typically I've been doing my runs in the afternoon, but recently it has been getting pretty hot, which makes it much harder to run. This morning I definitely didn't have that problem. All in all, it wasn't as bad as I was dreading it would be and I managed to run 2 miles even though I've been lazy this past week. Unfortunately I think I might have to make these morning runs into more of a habit now that the hot weather has arrived.
