That’s moi, a stubborn mule. I have counseled everyone here on being cautious on running in the dark and then last night, I went running in the “evening” and then found myself at “dusk.” I swear it went from nice sunset to 0’dark thirty real quick. I was running on a well lit path, until the last mile of my run. It was awful. I honestly thought I was going to break something and I finally forced myself to slow down. Not my brightest moment, pun intended. Please y’all be careful. (I kind of sounded like Britney Spears there, sorry). It’s getting darker sooner and we are all bummed about that, but if you must be outdoors light yourself up with headlamps, flashlights, glow sticks, etc. And now you know.
As noted, I have been an outdoor girl this week. Super unmotivated to work inside the gym, and earlier this week I got on the “dreadmill” and realized that if I had to run at 8 mph I might have a bit of a breakdown. If you have the same “take this treadmill and shove it” attitude, check out Fit Chick In the City’s thoughts on Beating the Dreadmill Blues.
