Last night I went on a run at 9:14 pm; I know that because I didn’t have a watch on me and looked at the clock before I opened the door. It was cold, dark and really quiet out there. This is what I learned on my run last night:
1 Most people are watching TV at 9 pm. I wasn’t peeping in people’s houses but I could see the flash of light from many TV’s.
2 – No one…I mean no one in my subdivision was outside. It was kinda creepy running without anyone around however there were tones of cars in their driveways …. must have been watching TV.
3 – The moon was pretty awesome to see. Not something you see on your runs every day; unless you are running at night when other’s are watching TV.
4 – One of the apple orchards was spraying their trees at night. I was trying to figure out what the nasty noise was and figured it out once I reached the top of a long inclined road. Lights from a tractor pushing out what I am assuming were chemical’s on their trees. Note to self – eat organic apples.
5 – I am getting stronger from my 5-6 workouts a week. Those workouts are paying off 🙂 Go “Operation Get Fit”!
6 – I love running even more, feeling faster and am more confident. I haven’t felt like this in over a year. Yes, I do realise I was pregnant for most of last year and stopped running at 18 weeks pregnant.
7 – Why do we obsess over our weight? So, I gained a pound and lost 3 inches in the last two weeks, weird, eh?
8 – I need to go running on my own more often. 19 minutes of “ME” time well spent tonight.
9 – Why did I not sign up for the Bluenose Marathon 5k this year. Kicking myself in the butt. Happy 10 Years Bluenose Marathon – can’t wait to hear all about it.
10 – When can I get out again? Maybe tomorrow.
What do you learn on your runs?
Do you ever run late at night?
