Exercising felt like a chore today. I didn’t go during lunch. Not after yesterday.
That meant I had to go this evening.
With T Junior in the BOB.
It’s been a while since I had to push the jogging stroller during a run. And, it’s been a while since I ran on the trail. Combining those two things today made for a long, sluggish two miles. Plus there were millions of bugs everywhere! They were hovering in groups like gnats right at mouth-level. But they were 10 times larger than gnats, you could even see the blur of their wings. I wonder how many of them I swallowed today?
Running does clear my mind, though, and while I was out there this evening dodging insects, my new workout schedule came to me. Just out of the blue! And, the solution is a total duh: I will run in the morning on the days I don’t work. I will get up in the dark and get dressed while Mr. T snores and T Junior slumbers. When I leave the house, the sun will just be rising and I will be jogging, swinging both my arms.
