DD#179 Running Log

As I was struggling through my run this morning, I realized that not only should I keep my running log on paper, but I should start keeping track of it in my blog. So I might as well start with today...

Actually I'll backtrack a little...Sunday was my long run day. For me at the moment that was only 2.75 miles, but you have to start somewhere right? It was a really good run. I was at a Girl Scout camp with Megan's troop so I managed to get up before everyone else and slip out quietly. The camp wasn't very big so I felt like I was running in circles repeatedly, but all in all it felt good. Well except for the really steep hill to get back up to the Lodge.

I managed to wake up early to run this morning. I am not a morning person. Before kids I could easily sleep until 10am and stay up until midnight. I have noticed myself slowly changing and now I seem to wake up early, usually before the kids or alarm start making noise. I still struggle to go to bed earlier because at heart, I am a night owl. I am not looking forward to the summer months when I'll have to get up early to run before the temperatures get to hot. Anyway...today I felt really sluggish. I'm pretty sure it was because I was dehydrated and not prepared for the humidity. It really made me realize that I need to reach for water or a Lifewater more often during the day especially the night before a run.

I have 2 weeks until the 5K out at Milford and I'm not too worried about being able to run it. On Sunday I probably could have run 3, but I didn't want to run back down the hill! Wimpy, I know...Then it'll be time to start training for the 10K. It's all about having attainable goals...
