I ran today! (The beauty of working from home a couple days a week – mid-afternoon workouts)
I slept really crappy last night. Zeus likes to likes to make his presence known a lot during the night by meowing loudly – it’s crazy annoying and always wakes me up. Anyway, because of my crappy night’s sleep, I didn’t get up early and do my T25 workout as planned, so I decided that I was going to work out in the afternoon. But when the time came to suit up and jump around, I wasn’t really feeling T25. But I was feeling a walk/run around the neighborhood. That never happens, so I had to capitalize on that.
Within like 2 minutes (because I knew if I didn’t do it right then, I’d change my mind) I put on my running gear and went outside. It was really warm today (85) and overcast, so it was pretty perfect. I took a 2 mile spin around the neighborhood walking and running whenever I felt. It was great! The running was tough though.
I don’t know if it was because I haven’t run since the 10K (back in Feb) or the fact that I had just eaten lunch, but I was running pretty slow and not for a really long amount of time. Eh, what can you do? I’m just pleased that I went out and did it.
I have to say, mid-afternoon workouts make me feel so good. Totally peps me up when I might otherwise feel a mid-afternoon slump. I’m liking it. I might try and do the same thing tomorrow, since I’m working from home again. We will see!
How about you … How do you feel about mid-afternoon workouts? What time of day do you run?
