How is it that I can run three miles in the dark with nothing but a head lamp for light, OK nothing but a head lamp and street lights for light, and not trip but I run in broad daylight and wipe out?!?
My mom said she noticed she is always more careful when she is walking her dog in the dark so maybe subconsciously I just run a bit safer when it's dark out. I know I am definitely more aware of my surroundings.
Speaking of surroundings, here is a tip from a runner/walker to any drivers out there:
When approaching a red light or a stop sign STOP BEFORE THE SIGN AND BEFORE THE CROSSWALK AT THE RED LIGHT. Seriously, how many other runner/walkers have noticed that a lot of drivers are assholes? I get it, you need to get where you are going. But the stop sign is positioned where it is on purpose, as in you are supposed to stop BEFORE the sign. My favorite is when I am running and I stop and watch a car cruise through the stop sign and stop and look both ways and then they see me and do a bit of a double take and I'm all "yeah, that's right, asshole, you should have stopped ten feet back and LET ME CROSS IN FRONT OF YOU. Jackass".
Wow, I am apparently a lot more bitter about that than I thought!
I had a lovely three mile run this morning without tripping. Which makes it an awesome run in my books.
I didn't do anything yesterday, not one thing. For some reason I was super tired so I didn't walk on my lunch and even skipped my dance class. My eating wasn't bad. I binged, but not on food. Oh no, I binged on episodes of Gilmore Girls.
Sometimes you need a day to be a sloth.
