Running Happy.

Whoa. It’s been really serious up in here lately, eh?


So here’s a puppy.


And here’s some sunshine. (From Instagram, no filter!)

Whew. Much better.

My workdays have gotten even longer over the past six weeks, and getting workouts in has become more difficult. I haven’t been great at prioritizing my workouts.

But I’m getting back in the game.

I need to get back to morning workouts, since they make my day so much better, but night workouts are better than no workouts. I came home and busted out a speed workout:

1.5 miles at “easy pace” (6.2 on the treadmill)

4 x 400 (.25) intervals with :30 rest in between (8.5, 8.5, 8.5, 9.2!!)

1.5 miles at “easy pace” again (6.2)

Getting back in the game feels good. #willrunforsanity

What’s your favorite workout to cheer you up? Team morning or evening?

    I would cuddle that puppy so.hard. It depends on the day what team I am. Sometimes it’s just easier to roll out of bed and pound something out without even thinking about it, but other days I NEED that evening run for sanity’s sake #10monthbabygirl

    Definitely team morning! After work I’m exhausted and just want to collapse on the couch. It can be really hard to pull myself out of bed super early, but I’m always happy in the end.

    I honestly am so impressed with how you work long hours and then fit in a workout – so much dedication, you should be proud of yourself. I’m Team Morning, but I can’t get myself out of bed at the moment so I’m currently Team Anytime!!

      I’m currently Team Anytime trying to get back to Team Morning! The working long hours + fitting in a workout is only because it wouldn’t happen otherwise!

    I’m all about morning workouts because they DO get your day off on the right foot! But lately if I’m planning on running, it doesn’t happen first thing as I feel like I need a good meal before I go out so it either happens after breakfast (when I don’t work or don’t work until later) or in the afternoon.
