On the agenda for the week....Tuesday 30 minute run (it was supposed to be 35 but I didn't look at my calendar). Wednesday technically still an off day for one more week. Thursday 30 minute run. So Tuesday at 6 am I was off and running and this time not on the treadmill. After Saturday's run was a little tougher than I expected I decided more of my running needed to be outside. So I hit Back Bay with a text to my trainer that if I wasn't at the gym at 7 to come find me. It was a perfect morning for a run as there was cloud cover so it was still cool. There were lots of people out running, biking, walking their pooches so once I got started I didn't feel so apprehensive of being left for dead if I turned an ankle. I know I know I can be a little dramatic at times, and apparently a little paranoid. :) As much as I love cloud cover I must say I can't wait for the June glooom to cease and desist because watching the sun come up over Back Bay on an early morning run is quite spectacular. Can't wait. So I did my 30 minutes and thankfully felt pretty good with a pretty nice pace of 9:24. Today I think I am going to head over to the extra curricular track workout in Irvine that one of the mentors puts on. Next week we start adding a Wednesday run so this might be a good way to prevent boredom of just slogging away the miles each day. I might call my friend Heidi and see if she is up for a run at my house in the morning, which will give us a chance to catch up on each others lives. If not, Back Bay it is. Just waiting for that sunrise.
