I figured out a perk to getting up early to run… I don’t feel guilty for taking a mid-afternoon nap! I am still coming back from my running rut, but I think I have figured out what will keep me out of my rut: Having a running buddy! While I am here in Vietnam, one of my roommates has gone out on my two runs. We are able to keep each other accountable, and I got up this morning, because I knew that she had set her alarm as well. It is easier to get up when you know that someone else is getting up to go running with you.
Not to mention how awesome I felt when we got back, even though I was completely covered in sweat, I felt like a beast! Our time is getting a bit faster than our previous run. I still have a long way to go to get back to where I was. But it’s all part of the training… getting better, it doesn’t happen over night, it happens with consistency and persistence!
Do you think it is harder to run in hot/dry heat, hot/humid heat, cold/dry air, or cold/wet air?
Run to win!
