of waking up to run before the crack of dawn.
Pro: you get a jump start on the day
Con: it's too dark to safely run alone outside
Pro: you have time to fit a long run in before work
Con: your legs feel like logs the first 3 miles
Pro: you don't have to worry about traffic
Con: there are creepers out (i.e. man passed out face down near river path)
Pro: the creepers force you to run just a weeeee bit faster when you go by them
Con: you need something in your stomach prior, but not so much that it impedes your run
Pro: you get to eat a second breakfast ;)
I knocked out 12 miles in 1 hr 42 minutes this morning. Then managed to fit in a little arm strengthening a la fitnessista and even a little foam rolling for the win! It's nice to have my long run out of the way for the weekend. I'm headed out of town for a friend's bachelorette party at the beach.
This was a step back week so next weekend's LR should be 16-18 miles. Per the usual I'm roughly following a training plan, but not too seriously.
What are the pros and cons of your morning, Friday or week in general?
