Whether you workout before work or after work, chances are if you workout outside you'll be working out in the darkness or very dim light.

And one of my major pet peeves is to see runners or walkers or cyclists or really anyone out and about who doesn't make sure that they can be seen.

Because the majority of my workouts are before Hubby goes to work, and usually I'm solo, safety has always been a priority for me. And when I say that I won't run outside in the dark / low light/ fog without my Noxgear, I'm serious.

One Of Those Days When Life Gets In The Way

Well, today was "one of those days". You know the one, where you are driving down the interstate and your car window gets stuck and won't roll back up. It of course was only 8 degrees and 6:30am. And of all places, I was on my way to register my son for pre-school, which in itself is ridiculous. See, registration opened at 8:45am. But unless you got there super early, then chances were slim that you'd get into the class. At around 6:30ish, I was number 16 at that point.

Yeah, that's how my day started, and the morning didn't seem to get much better. My plans of going to the gym were also side railed. So I tried another option.

I told Lil Man we could watch a movie while I ran on the treadmill. He seemed in agreement with that. So that's just what we did. He is currently into The Polar Express. (He calls it the train movie).


So, he got comfy on the couch while I got in my walk/run. I was actually 'allowed' to run 1.5 miles today during today's walk session. And today's walk/run was 50 minutes instead of 40. Progress people - I see progress. 

Tomorrow's plan is for 4 miles (my longest so far). I'm planning to hopefully finally get outside in the bitter cold and run with some other running buddies (or well at least run part of the time with them.) They are running farther, and possibly faster than me, but at least I will be out there 'with them'. And right now, after today, I think that's exactly what I need.
