Since I am running 8 miles with the Nike Running Club tomorrow and I haven’t run that far in a while I decided to do a 10k this morning to lead up to the higher mileage. I was pretty tired this morning, so it took me a while to get out of bed when my alarm went off; I can’t wait to sleep in on Sunday! The weather wasn’t as cool as it had been lately, but it was still beautiful. I felt good during the run, but I kept it at a nice consistent pace so I can be ready to try to keep up tomorrow. I completed my usual loop, but I ran on the outer most path to try to stretch out the distance. When I made it back to my starting point I passed it and ran down the bridge again because it is such a beautiful view! I then turned around and headed back.
When I arrived back at the overpass that lead home I ran past it again until I had enough mileage and met this bird on the left, and then ran home. The 6.28 run lasted 57:53. I also had my charity miles app running so I could get some mileage for Gryffindor! For those of you that don’t know I am in the Hogwarts Running Club and there is a competition for miles between the houses. In the app I am trying to make the top 25. I started using it a couple weeks late so I had to play catch up, but I’m so close! I plan to make it on the list this weekend.
When I finished my run I felt great and ready to start the day! I love a good workout in the morning; it makes me feel energized so I am more productive throughout the day.
