Night Running

Normally I don't run the day after a long run. My legs are tired and mentally it's not something I can handle nor want to handle. Today happened to be a rainy day in Chicago and I got lost in non-work related computer tasks so I didn't make it to the gym at a reasonable time. Finally the rain stopped as I was changing into my workout clothes. I decided it would be a heck of a lot easier to run from house than drive to the gym. The plan was an easy 3 without the garmy. I ended up running around 4 without garmy. My legs felt light and loose from the beginning. It felt great being out in the early evening on the lakefront. There is something about running at night in the city - I absolutely love it.

The rest of the week runs may be a bit tricky as I have 3 work visits in 3 days in 3 different cities. We will see how tired I end up being - maybe there is another night run in me yet this week.

Hi Jamie

You just had to run didn't you? That happens to me so often and it really makes it hard to just take it easy. Even after my really hard runs (or family road trips which are a necessary evil..)I still have to get out and do a couple miles the next day. I also love running at night or in a fog as it feels like you are flying.

Best of luck with everything.

Way to leave the Garmin at home. Sounds like you have a busy week.

It's soooo nice to leave Garmin home every once and awhile ;-)

Jamie, you'll be wearing the Shirt that Races soon. Just wondered what race you are doing?

I'm still a bit wary of night runs. It would probably help if all my running gear weren't dark colors and if I had some sort of light.

But good on you for having such a great impromptu run.

Good luck getting those other runs in! I don't know how you do it with your travel schedule!
