Oh Yeah!

I got a 3.08 mile run in today at lunch.  Yay!  This is the first lunchtime run I've done in awhile, and I need to get back into them.  Especially with it getting darker earlier now.  It's supposed to rain this evening and I've got several things I need to do tonight so I decided to bring my gear and run at lunch.  It turned out great!  The weather was nice and I ran the loop around the small lake outside my office.  Each loop is .77 miles, and I did 4 laps!  I forgot to bring my watch so I was forced to estimate my intervals.  I imagine it wasn't every consistent, but oh well.  I'll just call it a fartlek!  3.08 miles in 35:10 (11:26 pace).  Not bad for being out so long.  Here is the course, it's relatively flat, with great scenery.

Great job. I've never been able to sneak in a lunchtime run during the work day.

Lisa, I'm lucky in that the Army, especially my organization promotes health. We're allowed to take time during the workday to exercise. Still have to put in the hours, but I can fit in a good 30-45 minutes. If I'm not going out for lunch, I just work while eating, then go for a walk or run for lunch.

Ahhh I wish I could squeeze in a mid-day run! It would be the perfect compromise to my inability to drag my ass out of bed in the morning but also complete exhaustion after 13 hour days in the office. So jealous of you!

Glad your leg is doing better! lunch runs never work for me - I hate having to either be sweaty or shower mid-day! LOL
