Extra Run

After working late yesterday, I decided to drive into work today. We were slated to close at one, but there was some debate about whether that would actually happen with the volume of work we needed to finish. If we did get out early (which, like getting out late, means that there’s no express bus), I didn’t want to spend my afternoon commuting home on the slow route. 

We did close early. I made good time driving home. 

I got home early enough to go for a run. Considering the heavy duty eating that is likely to be in my future, I was glad for the opportunity. I’ve been feeling very sedentary lately. It doesn’t help that I’ve put on weight. 

Strangely enough, my recent running has been surprisingly encouraging. I’ve been completing my usual distance faster than I used to, and have been feeling stronger every step of the way. So maybe I can blame the weight gain on muscle mass, which is probably a fantasy, but I’ll take what I can get. I wish I could find a way to get out running more than once or twice a week. 

So, anyway, it felt good to get some fresh air, even if temperatures were back up in the eighties and nineties. Things cooled off as the sun went down. Hopefully I’ll get out and about a few more times over the long weekend.
