Day 26 - Knocking one off early

Today is schedule bound. Too much to do and a lovely snow dump last night won't make things any easier.

The escape valve for these days is a morning run. Morning as in before work. As in roll out of bed and lace up.

These runs test one's gumption. Outside it was 19F, windy, and snowy. Under my covers it was snuggly, and warm.

On top of that, morning is when muscles are stiff, and hydration is low, and fuel is even lower.

The body is just not up for a run.

Yet run it must.

The good news is that after the run, those stiff muscles are warm and loose. The head is clear, and the day looks promising.

Good running,

Numbers: 1.3 slippery, tightly scheduled miles with the dog.
