If you are one of the millions of americans that has a 9-5 desk job then you rarely see the light of day this time of year. It can become quite depressing. All of my runs happen after work, in the dark, when myenergy feels like it has been zapped. I've become desperate for a little sun on my face. I could run in the morning at sunrise, but let's face it, I am just not a morning person no matter how hard I try.
In case you're wondering when I shower, I don't. No time for such hygenic practices. Instead, I use soap and water to clean all sweaty areas and take a shower when I get home. It may not be the most fresh way to end the day, but heck, I squeezed 6 1/2 miles in (including 6 Yasso's) before 5:00. That is priceless.
This is not a viable option for every nine-to-fiver but if you have the opportunity, seize the hour! Squeeze in a run, even if it's a quickie.
The sun was shining brightly today, the sky a bright blue with a light wind to fan me off. I got my daily dose of Vitamin D and I feel fantastic.
Happy Friday, Everyone!
