With sunset occurring so early these days about the only time I get to run while it's light is on the weekends. It is a bright and gorgeous day outside (if a little windy). With that in mind, I laced up and went for a run on my new winter route. It was a pretty good run despite the fact that my running app spontaneously paused. Also, I felt as though I was struggling just a bit more than usual. I finished my 30 minutes and I'm feeling pretty relaxed and pleased with myself. I haven't been able ro push for more distance or speed lately due to a cranky IT band, but I'm not letting that stop me. I may go and treat myself to a new pair of running tights later. Woo hoo!
