I ran 6 miles today on my lunch break. According to my training schedule, I was supposed to run 2 miles today and 6 miles this weekend. I set the alarm to get up this morning and run 2 miles, but the weather did not cooperate. So I decided to take my work-out bag with me to work so I could run after work because I had a meeting and wouldn’t be able to run at lunch. But, my meeting was cancelled, and I took advantage of my lunch break to get a run in.

As I started running, I didn’t know how far I would go. The weather this weekend is supposed to be ‘wintery’, and I knew that today would be the best day weather-wise to get a long run in. It was difficult! When I reached the half way point at just 3 miles, I was afraid that I wouldn’t make it back to the office. I knew that I didn’t have time to ‘walk’ it back because I was on my lunch break.

Also, I had told my boss that if I wasn’t back in a certain time to come look for me. For her to have to come pick me up while I was walking back was an embarrassment that I didn’t want to live. So, as I turned the half way point I pushed myself forward.

I was thankful for the opposing traffic that forced me to wait at the traffic light. I was happy to catch my breath. All in all, I ran six miles in an hour and six minutes.
