Well today is officially my last day of summer vacation. I head back to work tomorrow to prepare for the arrival of students on August 26th. While my hours are awesome, they make it challenging to fit in my workouts. At the beginning of last school year I would head out after work (3:30PM) and get my run in while my kids were still at their after care programs. It was often very hot but I managed to run through it as I was training to run a PR 1/2 Marathon in Columbus, Ohio. Fast forward to this year and the crazy weather we have had lately and are predicted to have this week and I have a dilemma. I'm not a morning person and I certainly am not a night owl either! In a perfect world I would get up before work to get my run in however my body is used to sleeping later from being on summer break. In order to get my run in and get to work on time I would have to be ready and out the door on my run no later than 5:00AM. Now, there is always the option of running in the evening however two nights a week my husband works until 9:00PM. Obviously at this point I have done bath and bedtime with the kids and have settled in to relax before heading to bed myself. I have no idea how to do a poll on here but leave a comment and tell me what you would do!!
1. Get up and run before work
2. Run after work in the heat of the day (while kids are at after care)
3. Run in the evening (outside when the husband is home, inside on treadmill when he's not)
4. Other--please share your suggestions if you choose this option!!
Keep running, you're simply the best, and you inspire me!!
