We’ve been staying at our new place more often lately; as we move more and more furniture and continue work on improvement projects.
We’re still far behind where we’d like, but that’s not what this post is about…
This post is about something that’s going surprisingly well this week. Running.
I’ve had a renewed motivation to get up and get running first thing, which makes me feel better the rest of the day. I know that extra hour of light in the morning is also helping me along.
I think most of you know this, but I’ve virtually given up on evening running. It seems I usually get stuck late at the farm if I’m planning on running, or if I don’t I feel guilty for not fixing supper or house projecting.
Keeping my runs early is almost “free” time because I manage to sleep in if I don’t run. I rarely get projects done, even if I mean too, so I may as well just run! 🙂
On Wednesday morning I decided I would try my first running commute from our new home.
It’s just under 5 miles, and the morning was a beautiful clear, sunny, and 35*.
JR drove the car and Calvin… One of the convenient aspects of working with your spouse. 🙂
It’s a nice country run, and I can take several different variants of my route that’s 2 miles up and 3 miles over.
Mostly it looks a lot like this.
5 miles isn’t so far I know, but it’s about all the further my long runs are right now. I think I’ll try to keep up this run weekly unless the snow makes it too challenging. And maybe by then I’ll have that treadmill I keep thinking about!
