This morning’s long run came long-awaited. I took Wednesday as a rest day (per our training schedule) and intended to run Thursday. A combination of late sunrise, early sunset and a busy day got in the way. Friday was my next choice but only if I could make it out for a few miles over lunch. That didn’t happen either.
Instead of wallowing (for too long) in sadness about missing my runs, I spent time planning next week’s runs and workouts–including clothes for each. I also made sure I got to bed early Friday so Saturday morning would be even more successful.
This morning, the sun didn’t rise until our last couple miles. We got in 7.1 miles by streetlight and headlamp. It really felt like September with nice cool breezes the whole run.
