Today I did something that I've been wanting to do for awhile. I ran on my lunch break. I have an hour to change, run, shower and make myself presentable, so I went into it with this plan:
- 5 minutes to change
- 30 minutes to run
- 25 minutes to shower and get ready
I ended up needing more than 5 minutes to change before the run, so I had less time after, but I was only gone from my desk for 1:05. Plus, you couldn't even tell I had just gotten my sweat on, bonus!
Although it was exciting that I ran on my lunch break, the run itself was blah. My legs were sore from those drills and I think my body was a bit surprised to be running in the middle of the day. I usually only run before 7am or after 5pm, never ever at noon.
I don't know how often lunch runs will happen because I usually need to get in more than just 30 minutes AND the majority of my lunch breaks are usually spent at my desk working. I guess you wouldn't call that a break, would you? But now I know, it can be done.
I drove up to Bellingham tonight to relieve my sister and her family of me for a night. :) I hopped on the trainer for 50 minutes while watching the 2nd disk of season 8 of 24. I think I've expressed my love toward Jack Bauer on this blog once or twice. :)
