What are your weekend workout plans? I typically do my longest run of the week on the weekends, like most people. Unlike my weekday routine where I’m now trained to wake up early and run first thing in the morning, sometimes on the weekend I just can’t force myself out of bed at 6am. Or even 7am. And sometimes (like last weekend, when I stayed out way past my bedtime country line dancing [yes you read that correctly]) I can’t force myself out of bed at 8am. And during the summer in DC, if you aren’t out the door and running by 8am, it’s just too hot (in my opinion). So while I know I’ll get in a good run over the weekend, I’m much more flexible about which day and when.
However, because I’m OCD, I do try and schedule workouts if possible. So tomorrow morning, I’m heading out to run my neighborhood mall…
I’m so blessed to live a stone’s throw from the National Mall. I am often reminded in the summer with all the tourists s
tanding on the wrong side of metro escalators traversing my city, just how lucky I am to live here and to run and sweat here. Folks travel from all around the world to see what I see everyday and it is so easy to lose that perspective. I try and remind myself to be grateful. That I live here, that I am physically able to run, and that I am so blessed.
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
