WOD - October 27, 2013

I am popping in super fast to fill you in on my workout.  It was so beautiful out this morning (I feel like I'm saying this on repeat lately...and I LOVE it!) so I decided to do my run outside.  I haven't run outside in months (and months!).  But the Turkey Trot 5k IS outside so I have to get used to it!  It is soooo different than running on the treadmill, don't you think?

I think it is easier (minus the heat and lack of water bottle available at all times!) to run outside, since you can speed up or slow down in a mere second...no buttons required ;)

So, I did a quick (very quick for me!) 2 miles:


18 1/2 minutes cuts about 90 seconds off of my usual 2 mile time!  I was happy and sweaty when this was done!

No strength training today - we were busy with a Halloween party with friends (my kids had their costumes on and they looked so adorable - can't wait for Thursday! {duh!}) and then we had family over for Chinese food tonight! Yum!

What do you prefer - running outside or on the treadmill?
I'll be back tomorrow with more!

  2. I much rather prefer running outdoors. I love the fresh air, and just feeling like I'm getting lost in my thoughts :)

    1. Hey Jessie! Great point!! And I was using landmarks to base my pace....for example, I'll run at my max effort until that tree or fire hydrant - made it go by pretty quickly! Granted it was only 2 miles ;)

  3. Definitely running outside but a disclaimer on that is when the weather is nice and not too windy. Running in the rain I can handle but running on a windy day I usually wish for the treadmill instead.

    Well done on your time! <3
