It’s a beautiful day and plans have been falling into place awesomely. The return of the sun has brought with it a rise in temperatures and you would have to be mad (and many are) to exercise outdoors after 8.00am or before 4.00pm unless it’s in a pool. The drawback is that I dislike running in the dark and also I do not feel comfortable running on trails during the dark (but maybe I will try a headlamp) so I began my long run in the dark but had the pleasure of watching the dawn break before I finished.
Home again I had a quick breakfast and my first coffee for the day, leisurely savoured folowed by an schedules nap on the couch for 90 minutes or so. The run must have taken it out of me but it was a perfect thing to happen as I woke in time to prepare for the opening of the pool and got a 2k swim in.
After nearly three hours of exercise I felt justified in treating myself to a seafood laksa and now here I am. The rest of the day to enjoy with no nagging voice telling me to work out and the self satisfaction that I have put in a good day.
One day to go in janathon. I will miss it as it has helped me entrench a habit of daily exercise. Another challenge must be on the horizon.
