Day 26 of Juneathon was a short run since my training schedule called for a 15-minute run. I was having a bad night and even though it was getting too “late” in the night for me to exercise, I went to the gym and ran my feelings. We had gone out for farewell drinks for a co-worker and I had bbq wings and fries sitting in my guts, but I needed to run. A run almost always helps lift my mood.
I typically don’t like running on the treadmill, but the time went by quickly and my legs/lungs felt good so I didn’t mind too much. I only ended up running about 1.8 miles in 19 minutes (including a 3-minute warm up), but I started off at 5.7 mph and ended up at 6.5 mph. I probably would have run for a little longer, but it was past 9 o’clock and dark out by then and I still had to walk home alone from the gym. It is a safe walk over the bridge back to my house, but you can never be too safe.
