Marathon training is sometimes about doing whatever it takes to get in the miles. That can mean taking time off in the middle of the day for a run. Instead of leaving for lunch, I headed out for “runch” today.
There’s a little jogging path near my office that enabled me to get in exactly 3 miles. It’s still a little cooler than usual for August, but the humidity caught up to me by the end of the run. My new CliniqueFIT makeup passed the test, enabling me to get back to work quickly.
Scheduling a workout in the middle of the day is a refreshing and healthy boost (and much cheaper than a Starbucks break). It’s similar to the benefits of morning workouts with the bonus of tapping into those benefits right when the typical afternoon slump would hit. I return full of endorphins and more productive.
