This week my schedule called for a low mileage long run. I needed to do 6 miles. I opted to change it up some and run on Friday morning instead of Saturday or Sunday. I'm so glad I decided that because the weather ended up being pretty perfect! I woke up to a temperature of 71° and 75% humidity!!! It was like Christmas!!!
Some of my Sole2Soul Sisters were running their 6 miles at 4:30AM that day. I decided to run around 5:45AM by myself instead. This girl likes her sleep lol! But I did use their same route. It was a route I have run numerous times but they added in a neighborhood that I had never run in before. So I was looking forward to seeing some different scenery.
The run started out great! I could really tell that the humidity was lower. It made it so much easier to breathe. Before long I was in the zone.
And I really enjoyed watching the sunrise while I was running! It made the run even more enjoyable!
The streets were pretty quiet too. I didn't have to worry about a lot of traffic and that was super nice!
Before long I hit the halfway mark. I was having a great run!!!
And once the sun finally peeked over the trees it was spectacular!!!
It didn't seem to take that long...and then I was finished! Yay!
I always prefer to run my long runs with friends. But running by myself isn't all that bad. It gives me time to pray while I'm running. And I enjoy the scenery around me more when I'm not talking to friends. I needed this great run!
QOTD: Are you training for a race right now? Which one?
