8 mile easy run
Hello friends and Thank God It's Friday! I started my day at 5:30 am to go on my 8 mile run. I must say, I really love running early in the morning when it's still dark out. It always feels like an obstacle course while I'm out there dodging cars and keeping an eye out for burglars and weirdos. I know that sounds crazy, but believe me, I've seen the most bizarre things at that time.
For starters, Miami drivers don't care if you're a pedestrian. They will hit you with their car if you don't yield to them. I'm inevitably forced to wear what appears as a spotlight on my chest and back in order for vehicles to see me. Then I end up doing one of these numbers
hoping (and looking like a paranoid freak) not to get hit. And then, there are the runners and bicyclists without any lights. I think I've tripped a couple of runners while doing the looking back thing up there. Anywho, let me not mention the day I saw a guy jumping over a brick wall that led to a very expensive community in Coconut Grove- true story!
Anyway, I wanted to tell you all that I got a really cool app for the blog (see above to the left side) called the Daily Mile. The Daily Mile will show you my total mileage for the year, so you will see the digits changing everyday. For example, the number showed today is 55 because I have ran 55 miles so far this week (that I've actually logged in). This will be a great way to hold myself accountable for every workout.
I hope you all have a fantabulous weekend and I'll be back soon.
How do you track your workouts?
