Lack of Sleep and 4 Miles


 

The past few nights, I have gone to bed a bit later than normal. This has made crawling out of bed even more difficult in the morning. I am definitely not a happy person when I don’t get enough sleep. Add that with not being a morning person in general and this is a dangerous combination.

Tuesday I was up early and swinging away with my kettlebells. It was a nice good workout. I am hoping my weight will be dropping with the addition of these workouts. I have grown tired of losing and gaining the same 5 pounds week after week, month after month.

After work J.R. and I took a walk to the grocery store. I am really enjoying these little walks of ours. I know a I am outdoors running 3 times a week, but I am usually so focused on the run I don’t get to enjoy it as much as I do with a walk. 

Wednesday I was up early and off on my 4 mile run. It was quite a bit colder than it has been recently. I couldn’t wait to get moving and warmed up. It was cold for this Southern California girl.

I was happy with my run today; despite the fact I missed part that was planned out. I pushed myself a bit. Even though my second mile was quite a bit steeper uphill than the first I cut almost an entire minute off my time. (Though part of me thinks that time was spent waiting at a light, even though my app is supposed to account for any stops. I really can't wait till I get my Garmin.)

The last two miles were downhill. Today I really enjoyed the decent and pushed myself a little bit more than usual. Overall, I was just having fun on the decent. It was a good run. 

I am amazed at how quickly this race is coming up. After this week’s long run, I only have two more weeks to build mileage then begin to taper. It will be here before I know it. Exciting and frightening all at the same time.

Do you enjoy the outdoors? What do you do to get out and enjoy nature?

I'd love to hear what you have to say! Otherwise, I feel like I'm talking to a wall, much like I do with my students. :)
