I ran at the same nearby park as yesterday. I wasn’t trying but I matched my time from yesterday exactly! It feels so nice to have the autumn weather rolling in. It’s so much easier to run when it’s cold than when it’s hot. Plus, with the weather cooling off, I don’t have to worry so much about getting out of bed early in the morning to run while the sun is still down, or wearing reflective gear so that I can be SAFE when I’m running while the sun is still down!
In fact, I have to confess that it’s a bit intimidating to me to run on the streets, not on a treadmill or at a park. Something about just being a runner… it’s a total mental thing. Of course there’s the safety and security- you have to watch for cars and other people. But I guess more than that, it’s just different. But that’s okay, I’ll do that too.
Today, I ran 3 miles in 39 minutes.
