Janathon Day 4
A bit of a strange morning today: I was awake at 6am.
With the ergophobia beginning to take a grip, I decided not to role over and go back to sleep. A nice early start will mean an early night which in turn will mean I will be bright and fresh for the first day of a new term. So there is only one thing to do when you are up bright and early during Janathon: go for a run. It was too dark to venture out so I read for a while.
7am. Time to go. I thought as I was up early I would encourage the dog to join me by explaining to him that we would go to the woods and chase deer. He was up for it. So we headed out into the morning: thick frost, icy roads and bloody freezing.
Double layers. Check. Hat. Check. Gloves. Check.
We got to the woods and it was barely light.
There were indeed plenty of animals for the dog to chase, so he was happy. As for me it took a while to get warmed up, but after a couple of miles I was feeling better. By the time the sun decided to venture out we were pretty much done: 7ish miles.
I can now get on with enjoying the rest of the day knowing that I've run AND blogged. Not looking forward to day 5, first day back to work after the holiday, not sure where the run is going to fit in.
Today's mileage = 7.18
Total Janathon mileage = 19.66
This was the best picture I could come up with on this morning's run…
